AceShowbiz - Reese Witherspoon's fashion company Draper James is donating 250 dresses to teachers across the U.S. as they continue to educate kids using technology during the Covid-19 quarantine period.
As World Health Organisation (WHO) officials urge people to stay indoors and practice social distancing, schools worldwide are closing their doors to students, and taking their lessons online instead.
To help support teachers, who are connecting with pupils via video link and various online platforms, "The Morning Show" star Reese is raffling off 250 pieces from her much-loved collection.
"I have been so encouraged by the ways people are really showing up for each other," she told the New York Post. "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."
She added, "Advocating for the children is no easy task, so I wanted to show teachers a little extra love right now."
Teachers can enter to win a Draper James dress using Google Form until April 5. Winners will be revealed on April 7, with eligible teachers who enter also receiving promo codes for 25 per cent discounts across the Draper James line.
