BALLSTON SPA, N.Y., Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NameBubbles.com, the largest personalized name label company in the U.S. – specializing in waterproof labels for kids – announces its partnership with Blessings in a Backpack, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to mobilize communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.
This back-to-school season, Name Bubbles will donate $1 of every School Labels Pack purchased to Blessings in a Backpack. Through this commitment, Name Bubbles and Blessings in a Backpack hope to raise $10,000 – enough to feed 100 elementary school children over the weekend for one school year.
Research shows that there are more than 13 million children in the United States that live in food insecure homes. The federal government offers programs that feed children in need during the school week, but nourishing children every day of the week is necessary for development. The consequences for children that face food insecurity go beyond just a growling stomach. Poor nutrition in children results in weaker immune systems, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievements. As part of Name Bubbles' core value, to promote a sense of giving, the company will be spreading awareness and raising funds for the back-to-school season to support Blessings in a Backpack and their good work in an effort to feed the kids this weekend.
Now through September 1, 2018, one dollar of every school-related product sold on NameBubbles.com will be donated to Blessings in a Backpack to provide meals on the weekends for children during the school year.
"As a parent, I understand the importance of good nutrition and how it helps build a solid foundation of both physical and mental health," says Founder and President of Name Bubbles, Michelle Brandriss. "No child should feel the pain of hunger, and Blessings in a Backpack has created a wonderful network so we can all take part in our community or donate to ensure kids have access to food during their days away from school. We hope to bring awareness to the work the organization is doing and support 100 children for the school year."
"We thank Name Bubbles for partnering with Blessings in a Backpack to prevent childhood hunger and raise awareness about this silent epidemic. During our 10th birthday year, it is especially exciting to collaborate with a company that understands the positive impact of closing the weekend nutrition gap," says Brooke Wiseman, CEO, Blessings in a Backpack.
Blessings in a Backpack is a nonprofit organization that provides food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. In their efforts, Blessings in a Backpack is currently feeding more than 87,000 children in over 1,000 schools across 45 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
We ask our customers to shop consciously this back-to-school season and help Name Bubbles and Blessings in a Backpack to feed the kids this weekend.
