Everyone’s got some Loose Change. It doesn’t have to be in the form of coins or even dollars. We’ve all got something (time, talent, etc) that we can use to change this world for the better.

At Tiesta Tea we believe in Living Loose. Living loose isn’t just about tea. It’s about community. It’s about accepting, inspiring, and helping each other. It’s about enhancing every day’s experiences and improving the world around us. Sure, we can do that with loose leaf tea, but it doesn’t stop there.

For us, Loose Change isn’t one single charity. One single donation. One single volunteer activity. It’s anything we can do to help enhance everyone’s experiences in life. Inspire others to Live Loose. Create a change. Loose Change.

On January 22nd 2016, Tiesta Tea gathered our friends, family, and community members to Spread the Warmth to those in need throughout Chicago. Over 70 volunteers joined us in the Tiesta Tea office. Together, we passed out over 500 cups of hot tea and 150 warmth kits.

Helping Children Learn & Grow Through the Power of Play

Playworks is working to leverage play as a tool to promote healthy behaviors and improve the learning environment in elementary schools. They use recess, a time largely overlooked, to implement a program that reduces bullying, provides more time for classroom teaching, and increases physical activity. And it doesn’t stop there. Through games and activities, kids in the Playworks program also learn conflict resolution, teamwork and empathy. During the 2015-2016 school year, Playworks will empower nearly 20,000 students with the power of play. We’re all about work hard, play hard. And so is Playworks.
