MeForYou is not just selling backpacks. For every backpack that is sold, one full of school supplies will go to a student in need—“Buy One. Bless One.” For every backpack sold, MeForYou will donate one full of school supplies to another student in need around the community where it was purchased. This campaign, Lauch MeForYou, is supporting this student-led non-profit so it can officially get off the ground. Closing out the campaign, MeForYou has raised $3,647 and will be able to help 200 students receive backpacks.

ConstruCycle provides sustainable and affordable housing for citizens who couldn’t otherwise afford to own a home. ConstruCycle makes panels for homes, but the panels are made out of locally available recycled raw materials. Thanks to his supporters, Ricardo, the founder of ConstruCycle, can now attend the Dell Social Innovation Lab this summer because he can now afford to purchase his plane ticket. He was chosen as a fellow this summer to work on ConstruCycle as part of the program and will now be able to fly from Nicaragua to Boston, where the Dell Social Innovation Lab is held. The campaign, Help Ricardo Attend the Dell Social Innovation Lab, raised $865 for his round trip ticket.
