Gift Children with Backpacks & School Supplies

A microproject by The Family Giving Tree Vetted since 2013


These children wish for backpacks and school supplies because they know that you are gifting them with knowledge. When you fulfill the wish of a backpack filled with school supplies you are equipping that child to succeed in the classroom and beyond.

When we ask children what they wish for during the holidays, many respond by saying they need backpacks and school supplies. They ask for this because they have gone without these supplies since school began and feel ostracized for not being prepared in the classroom.


By being able to fulfill the wish of backpacks and school supplies, you are instilling the value of education in this child from a young age. This will follow them their whole life and help mold them into passionate members of the future workforce.

Long-Term Impact

When we fulfill the holiday wish of a child, we are creating a positive impact in their life through the creation of happy memories focused around the community that helped them. The toys they play with and learn from will inspire their life long passions and create a more enthusiastic workforce for the future.
