Our Back To School Bundles campaign offers two ways to support RAI Artisans in making these special packs for kids.
1. Purchase bundles to send to your favorite student(s) by adding to your cart and heading to checkout. Gift it or ship it straight to them. Your bundles purchase supports RAI Artisans and goes toward supplies and fair, living wages.
2. Donate using this link to send bundle(s) to students furthest from educational justice. Each $30 donation pays for supplies and fair, living wages for RAI Artisans to cut, sew and deliver these bundles in partnership with our community.

Bundles will be delivered to our partner Communities in Schools Renton-Tukwila (CISRT) by the end of August 2022. CISRT works with over thirty schools to serve students furthest from educational justice.
How will my donation be used?
A $30 donation pays for supplies and fair, living wages to RAI artisans to make each bundle. And added benefit is these will go to students who need it most.
As always, these cheery packages are made entirely from donated, upcycled fabrics. The funds raised will go to pay a living wage to the artisans for their sewing projects, in addition to ongoing training, assistance with setting up their own businesses and language classes.
