Davita started this initiative in 2018 when she was a freshman at Alpharetta High School. She started this initiative with the purpose of making a difference in the education of underprivileged students. She observed that on the one hand, these young children are struggling to obtain these supplies while other students, like her, have these resources in surplus amounts. She realized that most of these supplies were forgotten about or misplaced; thus, they are wasted. She is creating a balance between the two: by collecting unused and gently used supplies and delivering them to young students. In the end, she doesn't want any kid to be demotivated or lose enthusiasm just because of mere resources. Her motto, " Together we can make a difference one pencil at a time.".
