Back to school is one of our favorite times of year at Home Ever After. Right now, I’m working with Yick Wo Elementary in San Francisco to earn money for their art program. When you request a donation bag from my link above, Schoola will donate $1 to Yick Wo and $2 out of every $5 will go to YOUR school of choice!
A quick note: This is a sponsored post, which means Schoola is compensating me to help get the word out about their amazing store and service. My opinions are honest, as always, and I don’t share causes if they’re not worthy.

What? No Music Class?
As a professional writer, creative arts programs in K through 12 schools are very important to me. I grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska and the public schools there still offer art, gym and music classes as a regular part of students’ education.
When I moved to California, I was shocked to find out that students don’t have music class as a regular part of the week. My son’s last 2 schools didn’t have art class or gym class either. The schools didn’t even have gymnasiums!
I’m a singer. I’m a screenwriter. I’m a graphic designer. Being a creative artist is not only in my soul, it’s an integral part of my profession as well. I found my love and passion for these creative outlets WAY back in elementary school.
I remember my music classes and art classes from elementary school vividly, even though they were decades ago. From the minute music class ended on Tuesday, I looked forward to my next class on Thursday. In retrospect, I cannot imagine what school would have been like with no specials (art, music, gym).
The video below shows how requesting a free donation bag to send in your kids’ used clothes can help Yick Wo Elementary school get their art class funded:
