Since launch in 2014,
Yoobi has donated enough school supplies to impact the lives of over
2 MILLION KIDS!

Our Story

Yoobi, pronounced “you-be,” means “one for you, one for me.” For every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. It’s that simple!

Yoobi was born in 2014 to make colorful, vibrant tools that spark learning and creativity. Not only did we want to perk up the school supplies aisle, but we wanted to help solve a very big problem.

YOU

YOOBI

For every Yoobi item you purchase, we will donate an item into a Yoobi Classroom Pack. Yoobi Classroom Packs are full of goodies they need most, as determined by the Kids In Need Foundation.

In YEAR ONE, we focused on impacting classrooms in grades K - 3 across the U.S. In YEAR TWO, we expanded our reach to all Elementary grades, and by October 2016 we impacted over 2 MILLION KIDS!

WHERE WE GIVE

Through our partnership with Kids In Need Foundation, we currently work with over 30 resource centers to distribute Yoobi Classroom Packs.

Plus, in 2015, through our partnership with The Starlight Children’s Foundation, over 200 hospital school programs all across the U.S. recieved the supplies they needed to learn and be creative.

Our Give Partner

The Kids In Need Foundation works to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need.

With their incredible resources and amazing partnership, we are able to distribute our Yoobi Classroom Packs to Elementary classrooms that need it most. They help identify the schools that have the greatest need, and least access to fundamental school supplies.

OUR IMPACT

Every 2.5 seconds, a Yoobi item is sold.

That means that each day, 34,552 supplies are donated to classrooms in need across the U.S.

At Yoobi, we will not rest until every kid - in every classroom - has the tools they need to succeed.

With your continued support, we know we can make this a reality.
