The brand is also offering educators 25% off all online orders on May 5 for Teacher Appreciation Day
With schools shut down due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, teachers across America are finding new ways to educate their students by using remote-learning platforms – and Reese Witherspoon wants to do a little something to brighten their day.
To show gratitude for all their hard work, Witherspoon’s fashion line Draper James announced today the “Draper James ❤️ Teachers” initiative, which aims to give back to dedicated educators and lift their spirits during this time with a complimentary dress.
“These past few weeks have shown me so much about humanity. I’m an eternal optimist, so I always look for the bright side of things,” said Witherspoon in a press release. “And I have been so encouraged by the ways people are really showing up for each other. Particularly the teachers.”
She continued: “During quarantine, teachers are broadcasting lessons from their own homes and figuring out new remote-learning technology and platforms on the fly, all while continuing to educate and connect with our kids. Advocating for the children of the world is no easy task, so I wanted to show teachers a little extra love right now.”
