We're big fans of State Bags and when we set out to design a backpack for our new back-to-school products we knew we wanted to work with the team at State. Our kids have been carrying State Bags for years and we know that the quality of their products can stand up to the wear and tear of the school yard and that's hard to do.
Little did we know when we reached out to State to collaborate that State would steal our hearts. Scot and Jacq, the companies founders, not only create beautiful bags, they also make the world better with the #givebackpack movement they've created through their work. They use their influence to help kids in need and we were inspired to pitch in.
A few conference calls later, a new business relationship was born and a fast friendship was beginning. We worked with State, After School All-Stars, and Kheris Rogers at a bag drop in South Los Angeles to pass out school supplies from Mead, Sugar Paper, and Bombas to kids in need. At the end of these rallies, each child leaves with a brand new State backpack and a bag full of supplies.
We're thrilled to be part of the #givebackpack movement and encourage you to join in. The rush of doing good can only be matched by the thrill of seeing it come to life. Contact State at firstname.lastname@example.org to donate and be part of the next event.
