Just wanted to end a Quick update that we will be headed to Cambodia on April 12th to gift the kids with their new back packs and many more surprises. See More

THE STORY:

I created this campaign after spending a month living at an orphange in Siem Reap, Cambodia. What I experienced there was mind altering as I realized how little it takes to feed a community of  children (which is roughly $30 - $40  a day.) In addition; I found there was a great need for organization and knowledge of how to provide the basic needs of the children that were not being met. [PLEASE SCROLL THROUGH VIDEOS AND PHOTOS ON THE LEFT]

My first task was to get the orphanage staff to understand the imporatance of things, such as; personal care and proper hygeine. I found almost every single child was coughing or had runny noses, unclean clothes, and flattened tooth brushes that were laying in a basket outdoors. Bathing conditions are also very poor as I noticed the children were just rinsing off on occasion at the campus water well; the same well where they washed their clothes. Many children also suffer from low confidence and were hiding their smiles due to rotting teeth.

In addition to basic needs; I saw an opportunity to provide the children with tools to promote reassurance of self worth, confidence and the beautiful feeling that someone has their back. My goal is to give a personalized backpack DIRECTLY to the children; not filtered through a hierarchy or pass down process. I also felt a backpack would not only keep items organized in a compact space but sanitized. Moreover; every child would have something of their own. Including a love note from one of the sponsors or supporters tucked away inside. 

WHAT'S INSIDE:

• BackPack
• 1 Full Girls Outfit (top and bottom)
• 1 Full Boys Outfits (top and bottom)
• Pajamas 
• Shampoo
• Soap
• Hand Sanitizer
• Travel Size Tissue
• Tooth brush & Toothpaste combo in ziplock
• Cleansing Sponges or Puff balls
• Under Garments
• Drying Towel
• Paper Notebook 
• Pencils & Sharpeners
• Crayons
• Flip flops 
• Brush and Comb
• Hair ties and Barrettes
• Water bottle

In Addition: We will be purchasing 10 sets of sheets and other items needed for the children. 

It doesn’t take much to make a HUGE impact in the lives of these children. 

I would love for you to join our movement by helping to sponsor a backpack or two for $20 each or donate new Items from our list for the children living in Orphanages in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We are currently  planning to hand deliver them in Early Febuary 2016.
