A Backpacks Journey

See How Our Journey Began

Please join us on our journey to ensure that every child has the opportunity to learn and grow through inspired thought.

Our Progress So Far:


Backpacks Delivered

We provide backpacks filled with essential school supplies like crayons, notebooks, and colored pencils - and unique pieces of art work created by a child in the United States.


Children Aided

We are partnering with sponsor schools in Africa, Central America, and the United States to ensure that no child goes without a pack of crayons to call their own.


Participating Schools

Countless schools throughout the US are involved in CM volunteer outreach - creating art and donating resources, time, and energy: including NC, SC and many more.
