When shopping for the holidays or just shopping for every day items, what do you keep in mind? Do you make sure to shop for items that are on sale? Do you make sure that you stick to your favorite brands? Is there a specific day of the week or month that you do your shopping? We all have our routines when shopping. I always check Amazon before shopping, just to see if I can get a better deal and faster shipping. One thing I do every year for the holidays, is I make sure to buy from a company that “gives back”. Why not buy your loved ones nice gifts and donate to a good cause at the same time? This needs to become a new tradition for everyone and it can start this holiday season with Be Packs.
“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farmworkers can become the president.” -Nelson Mandela
The Be Packs Story
Be Packs has a line of backpacks that are simple and stylish. The backpacks are UV and Water Resistant. They are also incredibly durable, which make them great to travel with. $10 of every bag purchased goes toward sponsoring a child’s education in Zambia. For every 20 bags sold, Be Pack will is able to provide 1 child with an additional year of education, one meal a day for an entire year, and their required school uniform for the year. These are not your ordinary backpacks, these backpacks include a handmade, handwritten “Patch of Hope“. The Patches of Hope are 4×4 pieces of fabric that are gathered in the USA and sent to the African Education Program in Zambia. The patches are then shared among the lovely children in Zambia. The children then handwrite inspiration messages on each patch. Each patch is unique with a message that will touch your heart. After all of the patches have their messages of hope written on them, they are sent back to Be Packs in the USA. Then the Patches of Hope are sewn onto the Be Pack Backpacks, making each and every backpack original, authentic, and full of love.
My Backpack & Patch of Hope
I am in love with this company. I love knowing that any purchase I make is helping these sweet children in Zambia get the education that they deserve and need. It is a beautiful thought and feeling. These children are writing us messages for our patches that would not be able to write without our help, encouragement, and the education that we are helping Be Packs to provide to them. These backpacks are simple, but they are beautiful. I don’t think anyone would be disappointed by a backpack with a beautiful message in them. These messages come from children who don’t have the luxury of living, that we do, yet they STILL remain hopeful. We could really learn something from Be Packs generosity and from the hopeful hearts of the children in Zambia. I hope that my review can help spread the message about this incredible company and this great cause.
