Why backpacks for Syrian Refugees?
With over 40,000 Syrian Refugees resettled in Canada to date and many more to come in the future, many families lack the financial capabilities to afford quality school supplies for their children. By showing support for these families and their children, we hope to lessen the burden on them and their adjustment to a new life in a new country. We believe in putting smiles on people's faces and that a little kindness can go a long way.
What is the "Caring and Sharing Exchange"?
The Caring and Sharing Exchange is a charity located in Ottawa, ON that provides assistance to families and individuals in need, during the Christmas season and the back-to-school season. Their Sharing in Student Success program collects funds to purchase new school supplies and backpacks and then redistributes them where they are most needed. Last year, with the surge in Syrian Refugees coming to Canada, the backpack program saw a 33-per-cent increase in requests and are predicting a similar situation for this year as well.
How often do you make backpack donations to the "Caring and Sharing Exchange"?
We donate and help distribute our backpacks filled with school supplies to Syrian Refugee children through the Caring and Sharing Exchange for every 100 backpacks we fill. Our goal this year is to raise $7,500 towards this initiative by September 2018.
What is your return policy?
We accept returns within 1 week of receiving the package if you are unsatisfied with your order. We will send you a full refund after receiving the backpack back. Please contact us with your reason for return before returning the bag. Note: Customers must pay for the total cost of shipping on the return package.
