I'm the Co-Founder & CEO of Yoobi and the Co-Founder and “Chief Carrot Lover” of San Francisco based Yes To Inc. Each of my businesses are built on three pillars: incredible people, kick ass product, and awesome cause.
Yoobi, an awesome school supplies brand that makes learning fun, while also giving back. For every Yoobi item you buy, a Yoobi item is donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. Learn more at http://yoobi.com
Yoobi was born 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. Together we can! Watch our story to see how.
Yoobi has donated enough school supplies to impact the lives of over 1 Million kids… and we’re just getting started.
At Cheeky, we’re on a mission to create fun, exuberant products that make every day exceptional. You can find our first line of colorful paper and plastic tableware at the one and only Target USA. And just like you, we’re good people! So with every Cheeky product you buy, we’ll help donate a meal to someone who needs it right here in the U.S. Learn more at http://cheekyhome.com
