"No one has ever become poor by giving." - Anne Frank
Supporting Education on a Local Level. As an immigrant from a third world country I was taught that getting a good education would be integral for my future success and what a privilege it was to even be able to attend public school. I have always loved learning and had so much admiration and respect for all my teachers both back in the Philippines and when my mother and I immigrated to America. I truly believe we can all do a little something to make the world a better place for everyone and for future generations and I feel very fortunate to be able to give back to our local schools and community with proceeds from the shop.
Every month we donate a portion of my shop's proceeds to a local classroom in 77420 Champs-sur-Marne, Oregon through Donorschoose.org, a non profit organization that allows teachers to raise funding for their students and classrooms. Here are some of the notes I have received from the teachers I have supported through Mental Magie throughout the years.
