How a 14 Year Old Philanthropist Secured Angel Stadium to Give Away 5,000 Backpacks

July 22, 2019

Karina Tarsadia is a bold 14 year old philanthropist who joined Bart in the studio to discuss her passion for giving back. Karina has traveled the globe with her family on service trips and decided earlier this year that she really wanted to have an impact right here in her own backyard in Orange County. So, she set out on a mission to create 5,000 backpacks filled with back to school supplies for underprivileged elementary and middle school children. Along the way she partnered with Joy of Sharing. 

The mission of the Joy of Sharing Foundation is to support the local community in Southern California by helping build bridges and providing services to address the local needs. Joy of Sharing provides services such as: Senior Services, Medical Clinic, Citizenship assistance, Health Insurance and Benefits, and Classes.

Her inaugural event is August 4th from 10am to 4pm, entitled Karina's Backpack Project, and will take place at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA.

The day of festivities at Angel Stadium will include backpack pick-up, haircuts, grocery distribution, as well as entertainment and performances for the whole family to enjoy.
