Leading travel goods and school backpack retailer eBags announced today that it has teamed up with the non-profit organization DonorsChoose.org to help support public teachers and their students in the back-to-school season. Every school backpack purchased will mean a $1 donation to DonorsChoose.org.
Peter Cobb, eBags co-Founder, commented, “Helping elementary kids create their own journeys throughout the world through virtual reality is perfectly aligned with our mission and values as a company. We genuinely believe that travel creates better world citizens, so we’re thrilled to be involved in helping these kids learn about the world beyond their doorsteps.”
To date, DonorsChoose has raised more than $400 million nationwide, impacting more than 19 million students in 70,000 schools. In addition to the donation, $1, eBags is launching a DonorsChoose.org landing page that encourages millions of their back-to-school shoppers to learn more about the non-profit’s programs.
eBags CEO Mike Edwards is passionate about what’s happening around the country with DonorsChoose.org. “As the go-to source for school backpacks and a leader in the travel space, this is a truly meaningful way for us to give back to communities and help ensure that our next generation receives an excellent education. We are committed to donating $1 for each school backpack purchase on eBags.com during this peak back to school season.”
