STATE Bags Gives Back to Childhood Education
In celebration of Teacher's Appreciation Month, and in collaboration with Sevenly's Teacher Collection, we are excited to celebrate a brand whose mission supports childhood education initiatives.
"STATE was created to address the immediate needs of American children living with challenging – and in some cases critical - circumstances. For every STATE bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack - packed with essential tools for success - to an American child in need; but their commitment goes beyond simply a material donation.
STATE was created by husband and wife team, Scot and Jacq Tatelman. These Brooklyn-based social entrepreneurs have eyes trained for style but their hearts have always been with kids growing up in America’s most underfunded neighborhoods.
After watching countless kids carrying their possessions in ripped trash bags, Scot and Jacq formed STATE - a company that promises to not only deliver much needed supplies, but to also provide youth with the tools to reach their fullest potential and better their communities. And to always have their backs."
STATE has partnered with various organizations such as The Giving Keys, Honest Co., and even Beyonce, along with speaking about LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter, starting the hashtag #WhatDoWeTellTheKids.
