People Power Award Nominee: Stephen's Backpacks Society September 16 2016
Stephen's Backpacks Society was formed in 2006 in order to answer the vision of six year old Stephen who became aware that there were children living on the street or in shelters.
Their mission is to rally communities and the children within them to help children in need.
How Does Stephen's Backpacks Society Help with Youth Homelessness?
Stephen's Backpacks society began with one project: filling up backpacks with new clothing, school supplies, and toys around the holiday season to give to children in need. Now, Stephen's Backpacks has many ongoing projects including Footprints, Project Hope, and Educate.
Stephen's Backpacks Society Uses Button for a Great Cause
Through Stephen’s humility, faith, and passion he has inspired thousands of children to Dream Outloud.
The Dream Button was designed to encourage children not only to write down their dreams, but also to proudly share them with others.
What an awesome way to use buttons!
WHAT IS THE PEOPLE POWER AWARD?
The People Power Award is an annual award we will give to a grassroots organization that is working hard to make a difference and is using buttons to spread their message.
Along with a custom six-inch button award, the winner will receive a free order of custom buttons so that they can continue to spread their message! Through our promotion of the award and the recipient's work, we can help create greater awareness for the work they are doing.
Recipients of the award will demonstrate our own values here at People Power Press. We believe in the power of people working to create positive change in the world. Buttons are an effective, fun and low-cost way to share the spirit and message of any organization’s work.
