five reasons we love social entrepreneurship
Posted on February 14 2017
1. our team is its own culture.
2. you only do what you love.
the saying goes: find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life…we couldn’t agree more. giving 10 million backpacks is a journey, but knowing the impact we will leave on the next generation makes us love every step of the way.
3. you embrace being the underdog.
you don’t have to be bankrolled to make an impact. we may not be the most experienced or connected guys in the room, but our passion to empower continues to take us places we only dreamed about.
4. there is so much fuel for the fire.
every day we meet more people who identify with our mission. from boutique owners to our closest friends, so many people see the need for our cause. the collective support speaks volumes about how our giving cycle has touched many others.
5. our story is just beginning.
we are still a small, bootstrapped company in the fashion capital of athens, ga, but every victory shows us the vast potential of our giveback. 50,000 backpacks or 50 million backpacks…the sky’s the limit.
