this past weekend, the boys and i took a trip to Westfield’s Santa Anita Mall in Arcadia to check out Yoobi’s first-ever retail location. our family has been big fans of the school supply company, since they first launched in June 2014. we love that they give back to classrooms in need across the U.S.! Yoobi, pronounced “you-be,” means “one for you, one for me.” there are many kids in the U.S. that don’t have access to basic school supplies, unless teachers pay for them out of their own pocket – typically spending nearly $500 each. Yoobi doesn’t think that’s right, so their goal is to ensure that one day, all kids in need have access to fundamental tools for learning.
for every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S.!
this is one of the reasons we LOVE Yoobi! they really make a difference in the lives of children and teachers through their give mission. until now, you could only buy this brand find Yoobi online or at Target stores, so i partnered with Yoobi to get the word out about this AWESOME new store that brings the Yoobi experience to life!
just a short drive from Los Angeles and Orange County, the store features a hyper-localized giveback component – turning everyday shoppers into local change-makers and community builders. for every item purchased in this store, Yoobi will donate an item to a classroom in need WITHIN a ten mile radius! just in time for back-to-school shopping, we can all feel good about helping schools in our own communities.
if you love school, office or crafting supplies, you’re going to love Yoobi’s products – the brand offers more than 450 items total! here’s a sneak peek….
my boys were in school supply heaven. everything they could imagine, from backpacks to markers to binders, are designed to be vibrant and colorful, sparking learning and creativity. Yoobi does an awesome job of making school supplies fun!
