Ripples of Change
"I feel so grateful that I had the opportunity to travel with the 7 Wandering Backpacks to Costa Rica. There, I was able to have a hands on experience with the Boruca tribe. Not only did we supply Christmas gifts, but we took part in the giving and celebration itself, which I felt was a much needed personable experience. I would not have gotten that by simply donating money. My favorite part of the whole event was the effort the 7 Wandering Backpacks went through to get every child in the village their own bottle of bubble soap. Come time for the celebration, watching all the young children being so excited to blow the bubbles was such a wholesome and humbling experience. All the small tribal children blowing bubbles into the humid air has become one of my favorite memories."
