I can’t believe we are already talking about and shopping for the new school year! While I’m not quite ready to embrace fall clothes and shoes, my 6 year old has been on the search for the perfect back pack. The criteria for “perfect” were purple, had to be able to be clipped in the front, fit her planetbox lunchbox, and well if it happens to sparkle, even better! We found all of that and more with our new Bixbee backpack. It WAS perfect!
As much as we loved the styling and functionality of the backpack-had all of the “criteria” plus lots of pockets, a separate ipad/lap top compartment, and more-what this mom really loved was the mission of this company. It’s called “One Here. One There”. For every backpack purchased, they donate a schoolbag with supplies to a child in need!
How awesome is that?? I like to shop locally to support local businesses or support companies that have a cause we can feel good about. For local Brooklyn or NYC moms, I just happened to see Bixbee this morning at Dumbo Children’s store Half Pint Citizens, located at 41 Washington Street, Brooklyn. Check out some of their assortment:
For those not local to Brooklyn, check out their website here. There is a full assortment of backpacks, lunch boxes, and accessories for both girls and boys
Feels good to know what you purchase for your child goes to help another in need!
