Cool Backpacks from Club Penguin

Published August 24, 2016 08:30

School is an essential part of every child’s early development. Without proper supplies, however, school can be stressful for low income families. Donations of school supplies can make a big difference in a child's educational journey.  

Walt Disney Company and Club Penguin are equipping 50 kids with backpacks for the coming school year. The backpacks are full of notebooks, pencils, and other important items for staying organized. Our kids will now be well-supplied for scholastic success.

In 2005, Club Penguin opened and gave kids a safe, virtual world where they could meet other kids, play games, and have fun. Walt Disney Company partnered with Club Penguin in 2007 and massively expanded the capabilities of the site. Parents will be happy to know that the world of Club Penguin teaches kids math, critical thinking, global awareness, and many other life skills that have a positive impact on development.

We are grateful for Club Penguin’s incredible concern for education. Their work is fostering an informed, tech-savvy generation of young people. When young people are educated, great futures are possible.
