This Lawyer Is Fixing Detroit’s School System – One Backpack At A Time

This kind lawyer is bringing back-to-school smiles to children’s faces with his philanthropic deed in Detroit's broken school system.

It is no secret that the Detroit public school system has been in a state of chaos for some time.

A large number of students in Detroit, Michigan, often come to school with no or used backpacks and notebooks, and sometimes even without uniforms, hurting their learning experience gets hindered in the long run.

However, one kind-hearted lawyer recently extended his helping hand to get students started out on the right foot.

The Mike Morse Law Firm decided to use approximately half a million dollars to buy 23,000 backpacks that will contain various school supplies.

The Mike Morse Backpack Fund has also been formed, with $590 as of Thursday from public donations. Organizers hope to generate much more to prepare for the next academic year.

The video posted above will give you insight into what the project is all about.
