We partnered with Brittany Jeltema to create a shirt in honor of her renovation of a LGBTQ+ youth center in Florida. We donated over 300 LGBTQ+ books to fill the shelves of the library and the tee created helped raise over $2,000 for the renovation itself. We were beyond proud to be able to help create a safe, welcoming space for LGBTQ+ youth in Florida!

When we heard of the devastation in west Florida, close to our former home, we wanted to help. A long time customer of ours’ mother had lost her job and had a lot of damage to her home.

TO DATE WE HAVE DONATED OVER 3,500 SEL BOOKS TO CHILDREN THROUGH YOUR PURCHASES!
After the pandemic hit, we stopped in person events for a LONG time. Now we are back and hosting free book fairs! As a former educator, Scholastic book fairs were my worst nightmare. Having to take my students to a book fair in which they could not pick out a book was a huge reason as to why we started Kind Cotton. Now, many schools have us come in the week after the Scholastic book fair to ensure every child gets to pick a book out for FREE.
With our in-person reading on hold due to the COVID-19, we were tirelessly thinking of ways we can continue to put books in the hands of kids during this time. We excitedly came across First Book, an organization that has been dedicated to providing books to children across America since 1992. Although their mission has remained the same, their goals have shifted in response to COVID-19. They were looking to place 8 MILLION books into the homes of children through various outlets, specifically focusing on children needing books at home during this crisis. Thanks to your purchases we were able to provide6,399 BOOKSto First Book in the early stages of the pandemic!
Our books aren't the only things we donate with every order. When COVID hit and we started manufacturing masks, we recognized the importance of getting masks to people who needed them most, and couldn't get them easily. So with every mask purchased we committed to donating a mask (along with a book). These donations were provided to healthcare workers, local communities, schools, and more. To date we've donated over10,000 masks!
We have partnered with Here 4 The Kids to protect future generations. Guns are the number one killer of children and teenagers in the United States. And climate change is the greatest empirical threat to our entire planet, humankind, and species.
When Roe V. Wade was overturned we knew we had to do something. We want our daughter and ALL humans with a uterus to have the right to do what they choose with their bodies. We want all people to have access to life saving care. We created our reproductive rights line and thus far have donated over $8,000 to Planned Parenthood and the National Network of Abortion Funds.
