Fierce female entrepreneur Stacey Boyd has a new project, and it not only helps better the world, but it gives you a head start on spring-cleaning. Stacey is currently the founder and CEO of Schoola, an online consignment website that sells gently used clothes and donates 40% of the profit to charity. Yeah, she's a bad bitch.
This isn't the first successful venture of Stacey's; she's the founder of Savvy Source, an online community that assists parents with maximizing their children's education, as well as launching and partnering with several other education-enhancing initiatives.
Schoola has had tons of success so far: Fortune reported that they've partnered "with 18,000 U.S. schools and provided as much as $68,000 to institutions like KIPP Academy Middle School in the Bronx, enough to fund its 'rhythm and string' orchestra for several years."
Pretty awesome, right? Schoola upped their level of amazing with the announcement that they are partnering with the Malala Fund, founded by Malala Yousafzai, who at 15 years-old survived a Taliban shooting after advocating for girls' education. She is currently the youngest person to win the Noble Peace Prize.
Her foundation's goal is to ensure girls all over the world have access to education (K-12), and now Schoola donors can choose to have the funds made from their secondhand clothing sales - 40%! - donated to the foundation.
Stacey spent time with Malala this year and knew she had to get involved, and thus their power-partnership was born. Us fierce females have to work together to make the biggest impact!
So how can you get involved? Sign up for Schoola and look out for its next project with the U.S. National Women's Soccer Team for a viral campaign driven by the hashtag stand #withmalala.
