The Courrier's youngest founder, Aiden (age 10, autistic) just picked out his backpack for school return from distanced learning during this time of global pandemic from independent Brazilian artist Gabi Freitas via her company Bøb’s Backpacks️.
She’s launching a project soon in which children have the opportunity to create their own backpack design.The ones which are selected will be manufactured and the proceeds will go to underprivileged children for school supplies. Aiden will definitely participate and The Courrier nonprofit international mail art gallery will be boosting and sharing as much as possible. So stay tuned as the story unfolds---we'll be covering the developments to be sure.
Thank you to Gabi Freitas for sending along a little original painting surprise and hand written note for Aiden as well. It all made him feel very special.
One of the biggest driving ideals behind The Courrier was to become a platform which gives back to various relevant social and environmental causes.
