Hi, I'm Judy. I donate school supplies to school teachers all over America
I launched a leggings line designed by kids art via Kickstarter in 2018. Proceeds went to purchasing school supplies for teachers! Since then, I've donated around $5,000 to teachers all over the U.S.
I started Dreamers to help out teachers, not run an e-commerce business. I've closed out the leggings line to channel my energy into helping teachers!
Every month, I will be selecting teachers to help them clear their list! My mission is to give back to teachers through donations and my wellness tips as a yoga teacher. This website is my way of fulfilling my lifelong goal of helping teachers. They are the backbones of our future dreamers.
Why I Started Dreamers
At 8 years old, I immigrated to the U.S. from South Korea. I can vividly recall my first day of third grade. I did not speak any English and wore this posh, faux feather jacket that was popular in Korea. After being introduced to my classmates, I shyly walked to the corner of the room to store my giant Sailor Moon backpack in the black cubbies. I remember thinking how my backpack stuck out like a sore thumb in the sea of Jan Sports. It was then that I suddenly felt strange and knew I didn’t belong. That was when I turned around and saw my teacher, Mrs. Spears. Even though I did not understand what she said to me in that moment, I immediately felt at ease when I looked into her reassuring brown eyes. Throughout the school year, she was my cheerleader and comfort as I learned English and embraced my newfound American identity. Had it not been for her warmth, I would never be who I am today.
Stories like mine live in all of us: teachers have made a permanent footprint in all of our journeys. Despite having such a profound impact on our lives, most teachers fund school supplies out of their paychecks. We expect so much from our teachers yet they are provided with so little.
I started DREAMERS to provide aid to teachers who work tirelessly to give their best for our kids. My mission is to help out teachers in any way I can. I'm not a millionaire or a philanthropist. Just someone who wants to make an impact on those who provide so much for our world.
