Packed With Purpose - How We Give
The inspiration for Packed with Purpose came from the core purpose of Luggage Pros, "To provide products and resources that enrich and simplify people's lives."
Specifically, Packed with Purpose seeks to bring extra and gently used bags to people in need throughout the world. Whether it's helping under privileged individuals in local communities or supporting relief efforts in countries that have been ravaged by war or natural disaster, Packed with Purpose is committed to bringing about a positive change to the quality of life of those most in need.
Over the years, Luggage Pros has formed countless valuable relationships with our customers and we knew there was a way to leverage the kindness and compassion of this community for a greater good. With so many people in need of assistance, Packed with Purpose aims to help others by utilizing our resources to identify gently used luggage and bags and organizations that need bags and suitcases to carry out their mission of providing aid and support to people in need.
Many times the bags are used to transport medical and school supplies to areas in need. Once the supplies are distributed the bags are given to people who can put them to good use. The bags are used as backpacks for school, carrying families belongings, and sometimes even as dressers in some of the poorest cities in the world.
Luggage Pros first donated over 100 bags to Bags for Bosnia, and discovered a new understanding for the positive impact used, functional bags made to individuals in despair. Now, with Packed with Purpose, we are reaching even more people in need. Today, our donations are reaching people all over the globe as we are continually expanding the number of charitable organizations we work with.
