Charity Day: School In A Bag
This Wednesday, we’re excited to announce that Blake will be holding a charity day to raise money for the School in a Bag organisation!
About School in a Bag
School in a Bag is an initiative run by the UK registered charity the Piers Simon Appeal, which began in 2009. Here, the charity tell us a bit of background information about why the School in a Bag initiative was started and what their aims are going forward:
“About 3.5 million refugee children didn’t get a single day of school last year.”
“School in a Bag is a simple solution created to help poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. Each SchoolBag is filled with stationery equipment and resources that will enable a child to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and above all learn. Each SchoolBag delivered to a child will give hope to his or her future and has the potential to transform their lives”.
To date, School in a Bag have worked across many different countries, transforming hundreds of children’s lives each year by providing them with these SchoolBags, which contain all the basic resources they need to receive the education that they so greatly deserve.
What Will Blake’s Charity Day Involve?
As part of our charity day for this wonderful charity, not only will the Blake team be coming in our brightest red attire, but we will also be running a red-themed bake sale, to get everyone into the spirit! But that’s not all…
Each member of the team will also be dedicating a portion of their time throughout the working day to help pack SchoolBags with essential reading, writing and eating tools. These bags will then be sent directly to underprivileged and disadvantaged children across the world; children who don’t have access to these basic essentials which so many of us take for granted.
Blake will be donating a percentage of all sales orders received on Wednesday 4th to the School in the Bag charity. This money will go towards funding further bags for children in need!
