Buy a Backpack, Give a Backpack to Charity with Carri Backpacks

I received a backpack to show you the quality of backpacks you will not only receive but be giving to another child in need of a backpack. All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours. I will only endorse companies, products and services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of endorsement.

We’ve been hit by the worst winter I’ve ever experienced since living in Knoxville (moved here in 1997). My son was out of school for 10 school days (16 days total, counting weekends) in a row due to the weather.

That’s two weeks of no school.

That’s more than half of those days of us being either without power, snowed in, iced in and dealing with frigid temperatures. My son was also sick with a stomach bug during all this. Even my son is starting to get over the snow days. Although no school is still pretty cool to him.

When he finally went back to school this week, he had a new backpack. And not just any backpack, but one that gives back…

Carri Backpacks are high quality, durable backpacks perfect for today’s busy students. What I love most about Carri backpacks, though, is that by purchasing a backpack, they give a backpack to a needy kid. That’s right… for every backpack they sell, they give one to a child in need. Awesome, I know!

About Carri

Having spent three years as the VP of her local Childhelp chapter, Lynette Musick recognized a need among low-income children; durable, quality backpacks that would survive more than a year through the wear and tear of daily school life. A seasoned entrepreneur, Lynette and her son, Tolson, set out to design a quality, functional backpack that provides reliability to children in need and can be shared through a simple donation process.

For every backpack sold, Carri Collection donates anotherĀ backpack to a child in 1 of 3 organizations:

  • Childhelp
  • YMCA Bright Beginnings
  • Communities In Schools

I love the Carri Backpack (and so does my son) for what they stand for and what they are doing. My son even thought it was “Cool” and told his friend at school what carrying a Carri backpack meant.
