#CarriOneGiveOne - Carri Backpacks - Review & #Giveaway


It seems to me that just around the time spring break roles around, my kids ruin their backpacks. This time of year, its pretty much impossible to find school bags in the stores, so I started looking online. There are lots of company's to choose from, but when I found Carri Backpacks, I knew they were the right one for me. Not only do they make durable, stylish backpacks, they give back to children in need.


For every backpack they sell, Carri  provides a second backpack to an impoverished child through Childhelp, YMCA, and Communities In Schools. Carri gives the utmost attention to detail in the manufacturing process so that their customers and these children can carry a quality backpack, and these backpacks are definitely high quality.
Carri Backpacks are made from sturdy polyester, with tight seams that don't tear or fray. The straps are thick and padded at the shoulders, and it even has a shock absorber. Whether you're using this bag to carry books or go on a hiking trip, you will be able to carry your load in comfort. Inside, there is plenty of space for all your essentials. There are lots of pockets and pouches. It even comes with a removable neoprene sleeve for laptops. The color scheme is simple but classy, making it appropriate for both girls and boys of all ages.


If you'd like to learn more about  Carri Backpacks and all they offer, be sure to visit their website or follow their social media. This spring, if you have to get a new backpack, why not get one that is built to last and that will help a child in need?

I like all the padding they put in it. The shoulder straps are padded to make it comfy, and there is a lot of padding to protect the ipads, tablets, etc. you carry.

Why Carri One, Give One?

Unfortunately oppressive factors and situations exist in today’s world. The purchase of a Carri backpack will directly support our non-profit partners, who have a healthy track record in providing children aid in these environments.

I like that it has a shock absorbing bumper for the laptop and tablet pocket. I also like that there's a felt-lined media pocket to keep your devices scratch-free.

According to the National Association of Children in Poverty, 22% percent of children in the U.S. live in families with incomes below the poverty line. Research shows these kids’ parents also faced about a 5% increase in the cost of school supplies over the past year.

I leanered that these backpacks seem to be the best there is - and since I'm raising my grandson - I know how many we go thru since I can't afford a really expensive one - and the fact that the company donates one is a really wonderful incentive for a purchase!

I learned t here's not only a laptop compartment but a tablet one as well.

Glenda Hefty said...

I learned how well-made this backpack is...definitely way above the norm. I doubt this one would need to be replaced after a year like most of my daycare kids' parents have to do. What a wonderful and worthwhile cause this is. I worked at a school as a teacher's aide at one time and I know that teachers who really care do spend their own money to buy supplies and will buy stuff for kids too like mittens and such.

I like the tablet pouch but I rather have it inside the bag for security.

Jennifer Reed said...

I learned that Carri backpacks are equipped with many durable features.

Shemp DeYoung said...

I like that the pockets designed for your electronics are lined to protect your devices.

Geena S said...

The details about this bag are interesting. It contains pextra protection for laptop and little smaller devices like tablet etc.. Also it contains special pockets for phone with protection for them to be safe and scratch free. I din't understand about the sleeve though. But it's very good that it's handles are strong and the material itself looks very good in the picture snapshots that are provided. Definitely it's a cool bag. Since my current bag is now torn. I'll wait for this giveaway and see if I can get this cool awesome bag..

Sandra Watts said...

They are sturdy, durable bags and I learned they have a campaign to help low income children for every backpack sold another is donated to a child.
