CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-IKEA has made a $50,000 donation to Save the Children's early education programs as part of its Life Improvement Project. IKEA also helped make over a Family Head Start/Early Learn location in Brooklyn, N.Y., a Save the Children-supported facility affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Last fall, IKEA launched the third year of its Life Improvement Project to offer consumers inspiration and suggestions to help them make a positive impact on their homes and the lives. As a celebration of the public's participation in sharing their tips of life improvement at home, IKEA committed $50,000 to Save the Children's U.S.-based education programs. It also provided new furnishings and solutions to equip the Family Head Start/Early Learn center to continue to provide a learning environment that supports children's growth.
