All 6,000+ backpacks were stuffed with notebooks, folders, utensils, and snacks.  To top it off, there were handwritten notes of encouragement included in the package.  The backpacks were all donated to organizations present in each of the local communities around the world.  New York City's bags were all donated to the Food Bank for New York City.
