You are so incredibly loved, and so incredibly worthy of every ounce of happiness. Your mere existence is a testament of the light in this world. Please don't ever forget that. Wherever you are, my family and I are thinking of you and will continue to pray for your health, prosperity and happiness. -S

Hi Ernesto, I know being the middle kid can feel like you are not the first and not the baby. But middle is great too. Your parents have learned more about how to parent because of your older sibling and you won’t be treated like a baby because of your younger sibling. Have a great year. I hope your favorite football team does well. If you play football, enjoy your season and friends.

About This Campaign

It’s a familiar feeling: the calendar turning towards a new school year and the potential it brings for children as they grow and explore new interests. Whether we’re returning to the office or the classroom, many of us are looking to return to structure and a feeling of normalcy. This campaign is about making the return to school the most enriching new chapter possible for the kids we serve, who rely on school for much of their basic well-being.

We can only imagine how good it will feel for children to see their friends again at school and revel in the simple joys of being kids together. School has an outsized importance for the communities we’re supporting; it can be a primary source for safety, consistent meals, and enrichment.

Our hope is that Back-to-School 2021 will mark more than just the next phase of a worn-out cycle where kids in under-served communities are at resource disadvantage from the very first day of school. . The pandemic widened learning gaps and created many challenges, but also made space for a new narrative to emerge

We believe in the emergence of a new chapter, in which we collectively focus on the equitable distribution of resources and possibilities like never before. If we’re guided by our hearts, we can create stories of mutual care and collaboration, and bring joy for children nationwide. We hope this campaign will play a small role towards that emerging reality, and we thank you for joining us.
