Anna Welsh, a seventh grader at Welsh Valley Middle School and founder and CEO of littlebags.BIGIMPACT, recently presented a $1,000 check to Tree House Books, a giving library and literacy center in North Philadelphia. To date, Anna's monetary and book donations have impacted more than 300 children in Philadelphia.
littlebags.BIGIMPACT is a social and environmental impact business, hand making clutch bags, change purses and eyeglass cases from resourced materials. Welsh is passionate about education and is on a mission to provide quality books to children in under-served communities. She donates 15% of the proceeds from each bag sold to Tree House Books. Anna's efforts also make a difference in the environment by locally rescuing thousands of pounds of fabric from landfills.
"I am excited about this donation to Tree House Books, because I am able to see the impact come to life in my community," said Anna Welsh, founder and CEO. "I believe that every child should have access to quality books."
Since the company's founding in early 2017, littlebags.BIGIMPACT has impacted more than 1,500 children in Philadelphia with a total monetary donation of $1,500, along with 1,000 quality new and gently used books.
