When Katie Blomquist was in her mid-20s, she left her career in marketing and PR to pursue something more personally fulfilling: teaching. After landing a job at a school in Charleston, South Carolina, Katie quickly fell in love with her students.

What started out as a singular act of kindness has grown into a movement that is bringing joy to kids in Charleston and beyond.
