Have you ever heard of Tom’s, a buy one give one company? Well, the next up and coming company is Bixbee Backpacks. For every backpack purchased, they donate one to a child in need.
“Our desire to play a positive role in educating kids around the world began in 2011 with the launch of Schoolbags for Kids. Now for every designer backpack we sell, we donate a schoolbag and supplies to a kid in need through our One Here. One There.® program. We are proud to have donated thousands of supply-filled bags over the years…
Their enthusiasm about something so simple, something we take for granted, made a deep impression on him. Luis realized the children he met throughout his journey were like millions of others around the world, eager for an education but lacking basic supplies.”
As you can see, Bixbee and Little Known Help Zone share the same beliefs, that this passion towards education must be guided and helped.
I recently conversed with Luis, the founder of Bixbee Backpacks and set up a fantastic connection. Nearly every child at the Hogar del Amor orphanage wished for a backpack, and Bixbee was kind enough to donate the backpacks for 22 orphans. I was beyond excited for this generous donation and extremely grateful.
Every child received a backpack filled with presents and wrapped in festive bags!
