BIG… HUGE… NEWS….!!!
Operation BackPack4Kids has been given a matching donation of $20,000.00 by a UPS pilot who wishes to remain anonymous. In the next 14 days, starting right now, every single dollar you give will be matched up to $20,000.00. This amazing gift could raise $40,000.00 and provide 1,600 additional backpacks to refugee children.
I asked this pilot point blank, “You know I appreciate this, but this is a lot of money, are you sure about this?” Their response was, “What you volunteers are doing is beyond phenomenal, and I cannot believe you’ve pulled it off. Those children do not deserve to go through this, so thank you to everyone in your group that is making this work.”
Small Act…BIG IMPACT
The European RedCross and the Polish government estimate that between 7-8 million Ukrainians have left the country for shelter in EU nations. We have given out 1,740 backpacks to date. This single fund raiser could almost double that number!
It couldn’t come at a better time either. Look at the Partner/Sponsor page on the website! We are shifting gears into overdrive, moving and delivering backpacks every single day of the week now.
