Millions of kids in the United States do not have fundamental school supplies to learn and be successful. This affects not only their school work — it affects their confidence. So teachers step in and spend their own money to make sure students can learn. On average, teachers spend $560 out of their own pockets to support their students each year.

In this episode of Cause Talk Radio Megan talks to Ido Leffler, Founder of Yoobi, a social enterprise company that makes beautiful school supplies sold in retailers like Target, Walmart and Costco and also gives back. For every Yoobi item purchased, the company donates a school supply item to a child in need in the U.S. in partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation.

Ido and Megan chat about their incredible success as a social enterprise in a competitive and constantly changing retail environment, how they've successfully scaled the company, why design is so critical and how they measure impact.
