Can I like research some schools in need and we kinda like what through the schools and communicated with the schools. How'd you come up with five thousand? That's that's a lie well. Originally I wanted to give away twenty five tossing backpacks but I know that's a really big number especially for the first year of doing something like this so I decided to cut down. It'd be realistic and go for five thousand back to the first year <hes> but I someday really want to give away twenty five dozen backpacks. That's my goal so <hes> my family and I decided that we're GonNa make this annual event so great and then to you get the payback so you're you're getting donations. I assume he and you're taking their Daesh money and you're buying the backpacks and the supplies yes so that is that happening like every week you more money more supplies more backpacks or actually we have all this applies in fact backpacks right now and right now we mainly are looking. Were getting the grocery supplies in we have the hygiene kits made did that last week and this taken. We're GONNA be actually packing all the backpacks. It's going to take a while. We're all the backpacks the same yes what color they some are gray black and then somewhere orange. So the non the same so if someone wants to register as a volunteer or if they want to receive a backpack how do they do that they can go to our website Krona's backpack project dot org and and literally right when you pop on the screen. They'll be like two tabs in you compress if you WANNA volunteer or if you want to sign up for okay. How do you get all the backpacks? We're I mean people donating or are you. Are you raising money to go buy them. What would were where do you get all these supplies and backpacks? We've been raising the money and we went out to buy the backpacks but <hes> I know.
