Yoobi Helps Give Others School Supplies #IamOther

We can sometimes get caught up in the back to school shopping and buy items that we don’t really need, but want. At times we forget that there are kids that can’t but all the brand name supplies. I was recently asked by Yoobi to share about their school supplies, but also their message and how they help. “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!





From what I have seen over the years Pharrell Williams has always encouraged kids to be themselves. “I am Other” encourages them to be who they are, to be special. “The Yoobi x i am OTHER collection will impact the lives of kids in need. Since their launch in June of 2014, Yoobi has donated supplies to over 1.5 million students across the nation with the goal of reaching 2 million by end of summer. With this year’s back-to-school partnership, Yoobi hopes to not only continue to give items to kids in need, but to also spread i am OTHER’s powerful message of individuality, giving back to your community and embracing that which makes us different, makes us special. There is an OTHER in all of us.


Mya and I were at the store looking for items on her school list that we hadn’t gotten yet, and we couldn’t find a pencil sharpener. Not an electric one, nothing fancy, just a simple small sharpener. We ended up forgetting about it, but when we received the supplies from Yoobi there was one. There was a little “mini supply kit”. I have to admit, I kind of wanted to keep it for myself as it is so cute. It has everything you need on the go, which is perfect for a backpack where space is of a premium. Mya loves it and some of her friends are asking where she gets it. I hope they buy one. Not only will they get one, but one will be donated to a kid who needs it as well (total win win). For only $4.99 you get the following:

  •         pencil sharpener
  •         scissors
  •         stapler
  •         staple remover
  •         tape dispenser
  •         hole punch
  •         carrying case


Both my kids like colorful pencils. They don’t want the plain ones (can’t blame them). The downside is that the fun colorful ones can be much more expensive than the regular ones. Yoobi has a lot of options to chose from. For under $3 you can get an 18 pack of pre sharpened pencils. Plus as usual, when you buy a pack someone else gets one too. So really you are getting 36 pencils for under $3! That is something that I would have not issue paying a few extra cents for.


We donate a lot of products to the school and other organizations. Yoobi created a way that is easy for everyone to help. It really is a win win situation for all. Your kids get supplies, and other kids get them at the same time. Please take some time to check out the Yoobi site. There are so many options that there is a design for every taste.
