Charity Shirt of the Month: Little Bit Foundation
100% of the profits are donated to the organization
Founded in 2001, The Little Bit Foundation serves St. Louis schools in which 90-100% of students live at or below the poverty level, with a mission to break down barriers to learning and provide opportunities not readily available to them. Believing that education is a key factor in ending the cycle of poverty, each of the organization’s efforts is centered on educational equity by helping to level the playing field for students in historically under-resourced communities so that they may succeed in the classroom and in life.
Little Bit has impacted over 40,000 children with this vision since 2001 and currently serves 14,000 students in 42 schools on a weekly basis. Little Bit’s role in each school is to serve as the coordinator of programs and partnerships that address basic needs, food security, and health and wellness; support academic goals and provide career pathways. Little Bit staff and volunteers work one-on-one with each student to preserve their dignity, ensure needs are met and to be a consistent, caring presence in their life.
