Just a few months ago, Jackrabbit employees gathered to pack 375 backpacks for children in Columbia. [Watch our video here.] The bunnies were the first corporation to participate in a new Hope4Kids/Grain of Wheat International program called Project Clean.
The Jackrabbit team was thrilled to be apart of this project and to change children’s lives in Bogota Columbia. 375 backpacks were filled with a toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, soap, several devotionals, and a specially designed postcard from one of the Jackrabbit bunnies.
Each child was given a hug, a smile, an encouraging word and a beautiful backpack. The Hope 4 Kids Team took the time to teach the kids the importance of having a clean body and a clean heart. They also had the opportunity to share a Spanish brochure with several parents that highlighted the importance of teaching the children to take care of their bodies by eating healthy and creating good hygiene habits.
This is the vision of Hope 4 Kids and Project Clean…to provide needy children, in some the 32 countries that Grain of Wheat works in, with basic necessities, encouragement, and an important spiritual component. And what is just as exciting is the fact that American children and families will learn of these needs and how they can make a difference in the lives of these precious children.
The entire team at Jackrabbit Technologies is proud to be a part of such an amazing organization. Here are some photos of the children that Jackrabbit helped change their lives.
