Karma for Cara Foundation awards microgrants to youths 18 years of age and younger who spearhead exceptional service projects in their communities. Meet Ferdinand (17) from Baltimore, MD, founder of Treasures for Teachers & Students. He & his nonprofit used his award to execute a backpack building event within the Pikesville community. The event served as an outreach program for Pikesville High School in collaboration with Young Engineers, Key Club, Spanish Honor Society, National Honor Society, and Math Honor Society. A diverse group of students/clubs, teachers, staff, and parents was involved in preparing 30 backpacks filled with school supplies for 30 students. In coordination with the Kids in Need Foundation, the backpacks and supplies were bought in bulk.
