HUGS NOT DRUGS® Backpack Program

Hello all!
Today we are talking about HUGS NOT DRUGS®, an organization dedicated to helping kids in poverty  by supplying school  supplies, backpacks and more. HUGS NOT DRUGS® is organized by one of our dear friends (and director), Marla Gideos. As part of the Backback Program, Marla's goal this year is to buy 1000 backpacks for children in need. Just $5 (or more) per donation will provide a whole year of support.

Follow Marla's example and show kids that they matter. One action, no matter how small, can change the lives of many children and the world. Won't you join us?



  1. Laurie, I hope you'll collect money at our upcoming meeting for this great cause. I will have my $5 out and ready!

  2. Kathy,

    Actually, my You Matter Young Leader (Mary) wrote this, but you have a fantastic idea! I can propose this and we can send a donation to the cause on our behalf.
