At Kind Cotton, giving back goes further. It starts with our founder, Kaitlin Johnstone, former Teacher of the Year at a Sarasota, Florida Elementary School. Kaitlin has established a reading program with Sarasota County Schools, attending Alta Vista Elementary's Aftercare at least once a month. Kaitlin, along with awesome volunteers, works directly with the children at Alta Vista Elementary . Rather than a simple book donation, we're focused on building relationships through literature. The goal is to build an interest in reading among the kids- making literature fun, as well as educational.
We're actively seeking out new partnerships in the Sarasota area and beyond, where we can continue to make an impact on children through our reading program. If you're interested in partnering with Kind Cotton to help bring books to children and make a real impact, please reach out - we'd love to work with you!
Aside from working directly with the kiddos in our reading program, Kind Cotton is devoted to helping spread kindness in other ways, like supporting an Elementary School effected by Hurricane Irma and fighting to stop gun violence. As issues arise that we feel strongly about, you can bet we will be the first to try to help!
