Build a Christmas Backpack filled with warmth, hope and hugs!
This has been another difficult year for many families. With Christmas fast approaching and the needs even greater this year, we are introducing our new and innovative way to make a difference in a child’s life.
Our online Christmas Backpack campaign gives our volunteers and supporters an opportunity to deliver hope and a gift to a child in need. Team build with your company or group or participate with your family and friends. Depending on the amount you wish to donate, you can choose a full backpack or individual items. You can also choose the gender and the age of the child.
You can still be involved helping to make a difference this Christmas season. We look forward to meeting again in our warehouse when this unsettling time is behind us.

It's Not Just About Backpacks
It never has been... it’s about hope in the eyes of a child.
Children who are happy and not in distress have been shown to improve their learning capacity and perform better in school. We believe that our intervention with the small tokens of kindness and love that fill every backpack we deliver, creates a lasting impact on a child who has limited support from their families.
