I was recently exposed to a company that gives back to the world via backpacks.  It’s the one for one model that so many companies employ and this one is with backpacks.  So for each backpack you buy, one is donated locally (here in Austin) and in Rwanda.  Super duper cool friends!

Here’s a backpack they recently donated here in Austin:

SONY DSC

And here’s one that was recently donated to a child in Rwanda through Africa New Life.  The backpacks are made by the women in their sewing program.

This would be a great gift for someone that has it all.  A new backpack is always a great gift idea, especially when they look as good as these from OAK look.
