"What if the cure for cancer is trapped inside the mind of someone who can't afford an education?"– Unknown
I came across this quote a while back, and can't help to think how much it has changed my perspective on how vital education really is. The importance of a quality education goes far beyond the minor idea of self-sustainability, education gives people the power to change the world. Let's look at this on an individual scale, for example, a child in the developing world who doesn't have the opportunity to pursue an education. Now, let's say, this same child is being funded for a year of education, and a spark is ignited--she unlocks her hidden potential and realizes the things that she can achieve. What if years later, this child finds the cure for cancer? What if I told you this story plot could be the beginning for more than 75 million other children in this world?
Today, that number of children in the developing world lack access to a quality education, which is why I am very proud to introduce my most recent partner, Esperos. For every bag sold, Esperos funds a year of education for a child in the developing world. Each Esperos bag offers a unique blend of style, function, and durability to create timeless products that appeal to those of all ages. Their bags are made with durable, fine-aging canvas -- free from harmful treatments, chemicals, and dyes. They are sturdy, but lightweight for effortless travel and durability, and are waterproof, stain resistant, and machine washable. So while you treat yourself to one of these unique bags, you are making a difference, and a child's life is being changed.
The mission behind Esperos is such an inspiration to me, and I am proud to carry hope. Why do you carry hope?
