Bill Vaughan is a Louisville UPS/IPA pilot and former US Army paratrooper that started Operation Backpack4kids to raise money to provide backpacks with supplies for children displaced by the conflict in Ukraine. He has taken a leave of absence and is currently in Germany to coordinate and distribute the backpacks.
Bill launched this on March 11th and got results within the first week!
They have a Fundly page with a goal of $50,000 and they’ve raised over $37,000 so far! They have a Twitter handle where you can see pictures of the kids getting the backpacks…and he said one little girl couldn’t believe people in America wanted to send her a bag of stuff!
