Give Reese Witherspoon an A+.
The star is donating 250 dresses from her Draper James fashion label to teachers across the United States, as a gesture of thanks for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I have been so encouraged by the ways people are really showing up for each other,” says the actress, producer and entrepreneur. “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. Advocating for the children is no easy task, so I wanted to show teachers a little extra love right now.”
Witherspoon, 44, launched her Southern-inspired label in 2015, peppering it with smile-inducing accessories (“Totes Y’all” bags and “Hello Sugar” mugs) as well as charming eyelet dresses and plaid swing coats. She is currently starring in Hulu’s “Little Fires Everywhere” (which she also produced) and hosting “Shine On At Home,” a series of conversations with experts on coping with life the coronavirus pandemic.
