Washington DC Entrepeneur Launches Kickstarter for Education

Ebenezer Obasiolu

Donors Can Create a Signature Fashion Line While Funding Education

One Social Entrepreneur and college student is hoping to change the world. After losing his beloved Grandmother in West Africa to a lack of proper medical treatment, Ebenezer Obasiolu made a decision that has changed his future and he hopes will change the lives of many others, by the simple purchase of a quality made leather fashion hand bag – at the purchase of an O’Bazzie Satchel, classroom materials are sent to an impoverished school child in Africa (starting in Burkina Faso). That is why he has launched the O’Bazzie Classics campaign on Kickstarter to fund this dream of hope for many.

“We do not view this as a donation,” says Founder Ebenezer Obasiolu, “we view it as an honor to impact the future of a community, a continent and a generation.” Funding raised from this campaign will make it possible to manufacture large quantities while reaching more schools in Africa and begin the prototype-making process for the second collection. O’Bazzie Classics products are designed with the utmost care and are designed to age beautifully with time. Their durability will continue for years as the wearers bear the name and aim of the O’Bazzie Classics philanthropic mission. The incorporation of fashion and humanity in solving the lack of education in Africa and around the world is unique. Kickstarter Backers helping to make the O’Bazzie Classics campaign a success, will receive perks such as thank yous in personally hand-written notes or video from the founder, the O’Bazzie Classics team and school children who receive classroom materials from O’Bazzie Classics, a 13”, 15” or 17” O’Bazzie Satchel of choice, flight ticket to meet and greet with founder, a chance to receive the entire O’Bazzie Classics line and much, much more.


The O’Bazzie Classics team also understands not everyone may be able to give money to help launch this project, so they ask that those who cannot give monetarily help by spreading the word about O’Bazzie Classics online through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr or record a video challenge for Vine, Facebook or Instagram to invite friends to give to or share this Kickstarter fundraiser. Include #OBazzieClassics in all posts.
