Row 3000 miles for 3000 smiles! We will be rowing across the Atlantic in December 2021 to inspire people to chase their dreams and provide 3000 at-risk Seattle school kids with the chance to buy new clothes through our partnership with Assistance League of Seattle's Operation School Bell program.
School children shouldn't have to wear their poverty to school. Having to wear the same clothes every day distracts from learning, adds an added layer of social pressure and dissonance, and generally decreases confidence in the classroom. By giving the children a chance to buy their own new clothes, it provides a relief to the families, but most importantly gives kids independence and pride so they have a better chance at maximizing their early education.
