On the Spotlight: A Backpack Company With a Mission for Helping Kids

backpack company gives back to kids

Hi everyone, long time no see!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks (*cough, months) but I’m glad to be back to my regular posting schedule. I’ve got a few posts in the works currently, but I wanted to give a quick shout out to a company that I recently came across.

Just Porter, based in Chicago, is a backpack company that creates high-quality backpacks for travelers, commuters, students, and professionals. I was on the hunt for a gift for a relative, and seeing that he was going to start college soon, I thought a backpack would be a great choice.

During my search, I stumbled upon Just Porter’s site and was pleasantly surprised to learn about their mission to help children. As it turns out, every Just Porter purchase provides a child in need with a backpack filled with school supplies. I looked over their bag choices, and I narrowed it down to the commuter backpack and sable rucksack. Unsure of what would be the better option, I emailed the company asking for advice regarding the size and capacity and within minutes the support team responded. Grace, from support, provided helpful references about the sizes of the backpacks, and I ended up choosing the Streeter Backpack.

A few days later, my package arrived at my door, including a lovely handwritten note from the CEO himself. The backpack itself looks incredible and feels durable, and my relative was excited to receive it. So if you’re looking for a great backpack, I highly recommend these guys. Their customer service is phenomenal, and I promise you won’t be disappointed with their products either.
