As Sarah O. expands and our team continues to grow, we've had the opportunity to meet so many amazing women in the process. One of these incredible ladies is Lauren Birner, a 3rd grade teacher at DCIS at Ford and new team member at Sarah O.
Lauren grew up in Denver witnessing the vast inequality experienced by her classmates in the public school system, and this inspired her to become a teacher in an effort to make a difference. Because her classroom consists entirely of students on free or reduced lunch, Lauren often provides a large portion of the school supplies used on a daily basis. Upon hearing this news, Sarah's wheels started turning and her heartstrings started tugging. She loves to give back wherever she can and immediately knew she wanted to help Lauren and her students in some way.
She decided to partner with the amazingly generous team from the Arrow Group at West & Main to help Lauren fill her classroom with supplies and snacks for her wonderful students. So for one week in August, we'll be accepting donations in the shop and donating a portion of the weekend's sales. A detailed list of what Lauren's students need can be found at the bottom of this post.
Sarah O. will be donating 5% of sales from August 10 - August 12 to Lauren's classroom. We will also be collecting school supply donations in the shop from August 10 - August 18.
Those who donate a backpack, winter jacket or lunch box will be entered to win a pair of rose gold and diamond earrings (pictured below).
