IKEA Soft Toys For Education

There is no doubt education is a powerful and transformational experience in our lives. Think about your happiest childhood memories, probably several of them occurred in the environment of elementary school. Think about the moments when you began to realize your own potential. The moments of your young adult life when you discovered an innovative idea that sparked something deep within yourself. A myriad of these milestones happen within the context of a learning environment.

The history of my own education is significant in the grand theme of my story. It has assisted me in overcoming so many obstacles, even when it was part of the detour on my own path. I went through my kidney transplant in elementary school. I only missed three weeks recovering before I went back because I was bound and determined not to let it slow me down. The doctors estimated I would need at least six weeks before I would be ready to return. Fast forward to junior high and high school, I faced many health obstacles because of side effects from the transplant and missed a lot of school. I knew I wanted to go to college someday and I kept pushing through the challenges. My passion to expand my own knowledge assisted me in many other facets of my life.

I have seen the power of education play out in my life and the lives of others. I feel that when you throw yourself into your own education, you better yourself by believing in something bigger and better. Because of this, I love that for every soft toy and children's book purchased from now until January 3rd, 2015, The IKEA Foundation is donating $1 to UNICEF and Save The Children. This goes for online sales as well! This project is solid proof that working together we can all make huge changes for the greater good.

I have learned so much about the tremendous strides IKEA has made in terms of providing better education to children in dire need. By giving them these often new opportunities, they are not only giving these kids motivation to reach higher in their own lives, but they change the course of their entire families as well. The IKEA Soft Toys For Education campaign started in 2003 and has enriched the lives of more than 11 million kids living in Europe, Africa, and Asia.

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.
