Schoolbags for Kids

We had a lovely surprise in our inboxes this morning as we checked our Daily Candy Kids newsletter. They introduced us to Schoolbags for Kids, a range of children’s backpacks with a twist. Kalon Gutierrez and Luis Garcia know each other from working in the luxury fashion industry in New York, and always thought there was more they could do to help those in need. It was after Luis left for a long trip to the far corners of the world, from Thailand, Cambodia to Equador and many other places, where he volunteered with school kids, that he had the idea of getting together with Kalon and creating something to make their lives a little bit easier.

For every backpack you purchase for your child, one if given to a child in need and the project has so far helped kids in Belize, India and Thailand. From the sturdy, water-proof material, to the choice of the colour yellow (since a lot of kids walk on roadsides to school, yellow being the international symbol of caution to drivers), they have it all thought out for the comfort and safety of these kids.
