Not only are you invited to create and connect with us, you’ll also be giving back to a worthy cause. We’re proud to share that for every one who joins a live session during the month of October, Skillshare will be donating $10 to No Kid Hungry, up to a max donation of $10,000. This organization is working to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food, and just $10 can help them connect a child in need with a whopping 100 meals, so make sure to join us live so you can make a serious difference in a kid’s life.
