PBS KIDS, Overstock.com partner to serve the unique needs of children through launch of Overstock Kid Zone

Posted 11 Dec 2014

Overstock.com and PBS KIDS have announced a new cause partnership and the launch of Overstock's new Kid Zone, a curated shop within Overstock that includes thousands of children's products. Overstock will give a portion of proceeds from every sale in the Kid Zone to support the mission of PBS KIDS, to open a world of possibilities for every child and ignite a passion for learning.

Shoppers can support AETN's PBS KIDS efforts by visiting overstock.com/pbs-kid-zone/Arkansas-Educational-Television-Network.

Products sold in the Overstock Kid Zone are designed to provide the necessities to help children thrive, as well as spark creativity, fun and imagination. One hundred percent of the net proceeds PBS KIDS receives from sales in the shop will go towards supporting the mission of PBS KIDS, and two percent of those proceeds will directly support AETN KIDS.

The Kid Zone also provides links to PBS KIDS resources and fun family activities. PBS KIDS is the number one educational media brand for kids and is uniquely positioned to reach children everywhere with content that is rooted in academic frameworks, preparing young children for success in school and in life.
