It Started with a “What if”….

Backpac started with a few people from different countries (Brazil, India, America) all inundated with information but no clear path to help their local city and communities. Each with differing passions, one with the enviroment, the others with homelessless and food insecure communities… it seemed impossible to find opportunities that fit their schedules, their passions, and their long term time commitments. They wanted to make a difference – and felt that there were countless others just like them wanting to do something for their world, but had given up due to a decentralized system of volutneer opportunities. In an age where everything is instantaneous and easy to access, why was not the same system implemented in activism and volunteering? Using their backgrounds in technology, consulting, and human rights – Backpac was born.

Packy-Moscot and Head Activist

The Fearless Pac Leader

My friends often ask me what I am. Some think I’m a fox, racoon, skunk, and even a wolverine (!). I don’t conform to any species, race, gender, or orientation. Many of our activists/users are the same way. They are complex, passionate, and think out of the box! Come join our pac!
