Get Your Backpack On - K. Zigrossi

Hello Friends, Family & Fellow Backpackers!
Our 2019 Backpack Campaign is in full swing for July!

For those of you who are new to Get Your Backpack On, Inc., we fill backpacks with school supplies and drop them off at local schools for distribution to children in need. This year we will provide bags in Chicago, Kankakee & Bradley, IL.

Please share this page with your friends and family for additional support!!!!

Our beliefs are very simple:
* Everyone has been helped by another at some point in their life & none of us make it alone.
* By helping a child you literally change the future.
* Education is the best way for a person to improve their life circumstances.
* Yes, you will bring joy to a child, but the joy you receive will be beyond measure.
* We can't make a difference for everyone, but we can for that one.

Thank you very much for your consideration of this little project!

Thank you to all the "backpackers" that have already donated and are helping to spread the word.

I am always moved by, and forever grateful for the kindness and generosity of the people that surround me every day.
