What things do you take for granted? It can be something as small and simple as a backpack. Many people carry them to school or work every day. Backpacks are taken on planes, trains, camping trips and sleepovers. They hold almost anything and are often overstuffed with things people need.
Unfortunately, many children across North America don’t know what it’s like to have an overstuffed backpack or even a backpack. In fact, thousands of children don’t even own enough to completely fill a backpack. And because they are kids, their circumstances are beyond their control.
