Kurkside was founded in 2017 with a simple mission: provide kids with the best school experience possible by supporting teachers and their needs.
Combined, the founders of Kurkside have 5 girls, ranging in age from 6 to 13. Based in Los Angeles, they attend several different schools and each one of them have the same problem. Teachers are having to pull money from their own pockets in order to supply classrooms with the essentials needed to be effective. Basic items such as markers, pens, colored paper, scissors, glue sticks, tissue paper and books would not be in most classrooms if not for the dedication and care of the teachers. Now, what can we do about this issue?
It is quite simple actually. For every purchase you make, we donate 10% directly to your child's school. As the donations increase, the supplies fill the classrooms and kids are receiving the education they deserve.
That is why we started Kurkside. Kids deserve the tools necessary to expand their imagination. Teachers deserve our help and we want to do our part.
Simply put, as our community grows, we will all directly impact schools. That's pretty cool if you ask us!
