Music and the arts alike are always at risk. It takes passion and dedication to pursue a career in creation. But, it’s something that we champion and we encourage others to do so as well.
That’s why when Just Porter reached out to us, talking about their commuter backpack, we didn’t hesitate.
Just Porter has always had a deep appreciation for creators. Over the years, they have worked fine artists, photographers, musicians, and performing artists. They spread the word of their mission and product, while shining a spotlight on up and coming artists.
Seeing as their values align with ours, we’ve teamed up with Just Porter! One other quick note, their commuter backpack is one of the best commuter backpacks. So, that’s another cool thing.
A little bit about the company…
Originally launched on Kickstarter in 2013. Just Porter has been on a mission to create quality backpacks for travelers, urban dwellers, and young professionals. All while giving back to children in need.
For every sale of a backpack, Just Porter donates a backpack filled with school supplies to a child in need. But rather than simply “parachuting in” supplies, they hire local manufacturers. They make bags and purchase school supplies from local businesses. This is beyond one for one giving. This is creating an all around positive impact in a community.
