June 21, 2013,
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.
Life Improvement Project ambassador and television host Lisa Ling helped unveil the new space. "I'm thrilled to have been part of this program which helped inspire consumers to make a positive impact on their homes and communities. As a new mom myself, I'm happy IKEA is able to help children at this Sandy-affected facility and also kids all around the country," Ling said.
