Will you join Blessings in a Backpack for Giving Tuesday this year? Our goal is to raise $18,000 in only one day — on
November 27, 2018. If we meet our goal, it will help us provide more than 6,200 hunger-free weekends this school year. Click here to donate now!
This year, our Giving Tuesday social media campaign is Blessings in a Backpack from the perspective of kids’ backpacks. Backpacks with fun personalities will share the impact of our mission throughout the day.
For example, meet Annie’s backpack:
I am delighted to share that my kid Annie made the school volleyball team! The coach credits her hard work and dedication. But you know what? I credit the Blessings in a Backpack food that Annie takes home on Fridays. Because I know that kids need food to grow big and strong and to dominate on the volleyball court. You can help give kids the advantage. Donate today to feed the kids this weekend.
Plus, we have a lot of fun giveaways to thank you for being a part of our Giving Tuesday!
