Hi, this is Stephen from Stephen’s Backpacks.
It is hard to find the words for all the support you have given my charity this year! But more importantly thank you for helping so many children who need help!
For the first time our web designer Airdrie Web Design created a “Build a Backpack” online. So many special people reached out and helped build a backpack for a child this Christmas. There were only three of us at the warehouse but we were able to make over 2000 backpacks.
Every teen backpack had extras like blankets and every baby backpack got blankets added also. I really liked the notes you added too. It makes it so much more personal to receive a special message.
When all the people came to the warehouse to pick up their backpacks, it really warmed my heart to see their faces. It gave me a feeling that we were bringing them joy and hope.
This is the last week of 2020 and I hope next year I can do even more to help so many families and kids who need help! Even through Covid we must keep coming together to help where we can.
Thank you to everyone who brought a smile to a child’s face this Christmas.
Thank you for Dreaming Out Loud with me!
Happy New Year!
See you next year!!!
