Giving back to the community, is a priority to Scarf & Blazer. Kristin and Tara met while volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House, and each quarter they partner with a local non-profit, help them create a shirt design, and donate a portion of the proceeds to their cause. This quarter’s non-profit is Promising Pages. 50% of the proceeds from our “Let’s Get Lost” T, will be donated directly to the foundation to help get books into the hands of children in need.
Promising Pages is a nonprofit organization that collects donated books and distributes them to children in the Charlotte Area Book Desert: those with few, if any, books at home. Their mission is to provide ownership of books to underserved children and cultivate a lifelong love of reading through innovative literacy programs and partnerships. Fueled by studies showing that children who can’t read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school. Promising Pages provides direct classroom programming and more than 190,000 free books annually, making us Charlotte’s largest and most efficient distributor of upcycled books aimed at addressing this critical – and solvable – community need.
