SoCozy Partners in a "Give Back" Back-to-School Campaign

August is almost here, and it's at this point of the summer that we try & squeeze in all those quintessential summer activities before back-to-school time is upon us. A trip to Coney Island, the Catskills, a beach day, outdoor concerts in Central Park... that sort of thing. Because as we all know, the first day of school will be here before we know it (& Mama's not sure how to feel about that at the moment...)

SoCozy, the line of non-toxic hair & skin products for kids (& the brainchild of Cozy Friedman, owner of Cozy's Cuts for Kids in NYC), has some exciting "give back" news for back-to-school time. They've partnered with two very cool philanthropic companies who are giving back to students in need all over the country -- and they're doing it in style. The kind of style I only WISH I'd had when I was in school... but that's another story altogether!

Millie's loving her new backpack. The color combo is so fun,
& I love that the bag is just the right size without being TOO big.
STATE Bags is an American made "one for one" company that donates a bag for each bag sold to American kids in situations of need. A key part of this collaboration is the actual act of the bag donation. STATE Bags works with nonprofit organizations, public and charter schools across the country in executing their signature bag drop rallies for thousands of kids. You can see how they’ve taken the act of the donation to another level here. Awesome!

If you'd like a SoCozy-branded STATE Bag, simply go HERE to order. For each backpack purchased, they'll hand deliver one backpack filled with school supplies to a child in need. 

Now, did somebody say school supplies? I don't know why, but I always found buying new folders, notebooks, etc. so much fun to purchase. Well, Yoobi has taken this to a whole other level. Pronounced "you-be," meaning "one for you, one for me," their concept is simple: for every Yoobi item purchased, a Yoobi item is donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. This colorful, vibrant line of products will be filled in each SoCozy-branded STATE Bag & sent off to deserving children, starting their school year off right. And while I may have mixed feelings about sending my kids back-to-school this September, this is an initiative I can totally get behind. 

Here's to giving back!
