Mmmmm… can you smell it?
It smells like new pencils, pens, and cheap plastic backpacks.
It smells like lofty goals and parents hoping their children don’t flunk anything.
It smells like new school clothes, and excitement for what is yet to come.
It’s that time of the year again, Target has their endless amount of school supplies out and you are sitting looking at the kids’s school list thinking, “Why do they need 4 boxes of Kleenex? Can I skip purchasing this?”
Maybe this is just not you, yet, maybe you are a student headed off to college with a limited amount of cash and you’re just thinking, “I hope I don’t have to live off of Ramen all year.”
Just like you, 6 students, participants of the 3seams’ program in Nepal, are starting a new school year again, and are headed into their senior year! Can we just say, “Whoop Whoop”? It is just such an exciting time of the year! When talking to the director and founder of 3seams, Inga says, “I am so incredibly happy about it and am so proud of the hard work they have been putting in.”
While in America we are so blessed to receive free education up through senior year, these students are not. Part of the 3seams program in Nepal involves the students working to help pay for their share of their school tuition, however there still is a portion that 3seams pays for.
On Sunday, August 14th, 3seams is launching a $5 CHALLENGE.
Ya’ heard meh. $5.
That’s you saying, “I will forgo my Starbucks while I do my school shopping.”
In the past, 3seams has done a few of these types of challenges, ranging from $10-20, however this year 3seams is doing things a little different. 3seams realizes that the majority of our followers and customers are the teenagers and the college students.
3seams LOVES this. There is just something so beautiful in seeing the younger generation stepping up and saying, “I want to be apart of something that means something and will change the world.” It’s one of the reasons product prices are lower; there is a desire for students to be able to purchase a piece of the 3seams collection and make that difference.
For one week, 3seams will run this challenge in hopes of raising $3,000. That means 600 people will be needed in order to make this happen.
(((sucks in air)))
How are we going to locate 600 people?!
Well for starters, we know there are 600 people out there following us, but maybe you wanna win something in order to participate??
Gotcha’ didn’t I?
Free stuff gets everybody a movin’ and a shakin’.

Now on to the FREE stuff… IF 3seams reaches the $3,000 goal, we will be launching a week’s worth of giveaways! That’s right! Each day a different piece of the 3seams collection will be highlighted and you can get the chance to win one or even all 6 if you’re real lucky!
