On December 10th, we partnered with Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation to donate 250 backpacks to underprivileged youth in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club of America in Dorchester, MA.
The mission of the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation is to assist youth to ensure that no child is limited or prevented from attaining their lifetime goal or dream due to financial circumstances. The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation was established in May 2001 by Mark and Jim Wahlberg, lifelong members and advocates of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Mark came from a family of nine children and spent most of his afternoons and evenings at his local club. Mark credits a large part of his success to the fact that he was fortunate enough to spend his free time in the positive and nurturing environment of the Boys and Girls club.
Will is inspired by those that deem to live by instinct, dreams and hard work. We partner with individuals who support others to pursue their dreams.
Will is committed to giving back through his impactful Give Will Initiative.
For each Give Will backpack purchased, we donate one backpack to a child in need.
Each bag is filled with the essential school supplies as well as space for something more: their dreams. Children are encouraged to write their dreams directly on the bag
and then carry that inspiration with them every day. This year we partnered with the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation in conjunction with The Boys & Girls Club in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
In addition to donating 250 backpacks, Will and his team laughed, conversed, inspired and helped 250 kids write their dream on their new backpack so those children can carry that dream with them everyday.
Will discovered that once again, the act of donating to children was the best gift of all. The room was full of dreamers and the energy of the room was filled with inspiration, anticipation and optimism.
The children spoke of their passions and dedications to become a doctor, a teacher, a pro swimmer, NFL player, a musician, among other professions. They spoke of choices, hard work and hope for themselves and their families.
To help kids discover their passions, Will asked simple questions, “What was the first thing you thought about when you woke up?” “What do you like best of all”? “Who do you look up to?”
Some responses included:
“Cookies! I want to be a baker”
“Soccer! I dream to be a soccer player”
“My family… I want my family to be healthy”
One kid said he wanted to be “a billionaire” I asked how? And he said,
“ I will need to work hard everyday.”
Another young girl wanted to win the lottery to give it to her grandparents.
Dreams are a powerful tool to bring hope, focus and action to kids lives. We know peoples dreams are challenged and evolve over time. Our biggest goal is to make sure they never lose that dream.
We dream that these backpacks will serve as a useful reminder for kids to carry their tools for success and to carry their dream with them everyday.
We are touched by these dreamers and look forward to supporting more dreams this year and in many years to come.

The monogram has existed since 350 B.C., but came into popularity as steam ships started to cross the Atlantic to help identify the trunks and luggage of the travelers. Today, the monogram remains a functional identifier, while also lending personal style to your leather goods.
Personalize your product or gift with monogramming in either our small serif font (1/4") or our large sans-serif font (1/2") shown above. We use traditional heat stamping to emboss into our vegetable tanned leather.
