In Collaboration with State Bags, Honest gives away over 3,000 Backpacks to Children
August 17, 2015
We think that every child should have access to safe and healthy choices, so we’re working with Head Start programs across the country to help prepare preschoolers for kindergarten. When you purchase an Honest + State backpack, we’ll give one (full of essentials!) to a child under 6 in Head Start, to help ensure that they are prepared to go off to kindergarten with safe and stylish products.
To help accomplish this feat, our Honest Ontario team came together for a bag-stuffing summer carnival. In just 2 hours, Honest Ontario along with our friends from Yoobi, Child Care Resource Center, and State Bags stuffed 1,000 backpacks. Then, we hosted an official Kindergarten Readiness Event for 500 families in the Los Angeles Area. The carnival was complete with hands-on games and activities, a reading station with free books, and a farmers’ market full of organic fruits and veggies. Following our event, we gave the additional 2,000 backpacks to children in Head Start programs across NJ, NY, and TX.
