Velveteen and PrathamUSA have partnered to sell a special holiday capsule collection and donate 100% of the profits to support Pratham’s education programs in Delhi. The sale will be hosted on www.VelveteenClothing.com as a post-Thanksgiving closeout. It launches on Black Friday, November 29, and will continue through Giving Tuesday, December 2, 2014.
This Flash Sale provides an opportunity for customers to support education in India while shopping elegant holiday looks including delicate silk dresses, silvery velvet skirts, stylish baby tunics and much more.
Pratham is the largest educational movement in India. This past September, Velveteen’s founder Laura Eckerman Egloff, visited the Pratham’s library in government schools and a Pratham run Learning Center in the Mayur Vihar neighborhood of New Delhi. She was impressed by the success Pratham, its educators and community volunteers are having in creating educational opportunities for underserved children in India. As a mother of two young children, Laura knows how important it is that all children have access to quality education. She is committed to work through Velveteen to support programs like Pratham which are working well and making a difference.
“At the heart of Velveteen is the belief that empowerment of children is the first step toward a better future for everyone. We owe it to the world to ensure every child has the opportunity to engage with the world around them – to wander, to explore, to look outward and to shine. Education is the critical first step in unlocking this opportunity for millions of children. We’re thrilled that our first Flash Sale will be in support of the incredible work that Pratham is doing in India.”
We would love to have you join this cause and help those that are less fortunate! You can purchase from the special holiday collection here.
