Africa Bags provides several different opportunities for supporters to help us help them. Here is how you can help:
2017 Thanksgiving FOOD DRIVE:
Africa Bags is raising funds this Thanksgiving season to feed starving children in Malawi, Africa and YOU CAN HELP! You can feed a child for only $2.00 per week! Every $2 you donate will provide Nsima (maise made from local corn) and beans for a child for seven days. The simple change in your pocket can feed a vulnerable child and change their life forever.
Participation in the 2017 Thanksgiving Food Drive is easy! Simply print and set out the THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE information sheet during your Thanksgiving feast along with an empty plate. Ask your guests to donate to help feed the vulnerable children of Malawi. Collect the money and send a check to Africa Bags. We will use 100% of the money you raise to buy maize and beans to feed the children.
After collecting the money please send a check to: Africa Bags @ 235 Hopkins Court, Loveland, CO 80537. 100% of the funds you raise will be used to feed vulnerable children!

Hailey Hebert took it upon herself to introduce Africa Bags to her school. She used an Africa Bag as her book bag and proceeded to sell bags to five of her teachers. To top things off she ran a lemon-aid stand and gave all proceeds to Africa Bags as a donation. She really touched our hearts and truly does understand the spirit of Africa Bags.
