More than school supplies, we bring Backpacks of joy!

It is a child’s right to receive an education, to attend school and be given the opportunity to build a better future. Unfortunately not every child has the means necessary to make this right as easily accessible, especially in third world countries. That is why Cuentos de Triadas INC. Fundación Caricatura and the Salvadoran Consulate of Long Island teamed up to provide 150 children in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic with backpacks with basic school supplies to attend their local schools. Also to provide 150 children in the community of El Congo, El Salvador with the school supplies that are not provided by the government (coloring pencils, plastic 2-pocket folders, construction paper, multi colored printing paper, glue sticks, and pencil sharpeners).

  • We are estimating $20 per backpack

  • Shipping to Dominican Republic will vary pending amount of boxes filled. Average cost per box is $80 U.S. dollars.

  • Approximately 4-5 boxes wil be shipped.

  • Our fundraising event will be held on Friday July 26th, 2019 at 6pm at the Salvadoran Consulate in Brentwood N.Y.

  • Our objective is to surpass our set goal and provide as many more children as possible with school supplies.

Stay tuned for other opportunities to spread joy!

Son más que útiles escolares, son ¡Mochilas Alegres!

“Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.” ―Eleanor Roosevelt
