LAS VEGAS, April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Papa Bello Enterprises, Inc. (Pink Sheets: PAPA) joins partner Aero Financial in supporting educational non-profit organization – The I AM Foundation. Papa Bello is assisting the foundation in creating additional awareness to the cause, both nationally and internationally, and encouraging groups and individuals to become involved with the charity.
Papa Bello’s CEO Chase Canfield and team members from Aero Financial joined representatives from The I AM Foundation on their recent visit to Mexico this month. The purpose of the mission was to gift their literacy and self-esteem building books to children in a local orphanage. Papa Bello is currently working with I AM designers to add a specialized children’s placemat to the items for gifting and use throughout their stores.
The I AM Foundation (www.iamfoundation.org) is a San Diego-based educational 501 (c)3 nonprofit that gifts books and music to individuals and organizations throughout the world. Recent missions have been made to such locations as Kenya, Croatia, Costa Rica, Sri Lanka and across the United States.

Children’s needs often go unmet as families struggle to pay the bills. We chose to partner with The I AM Foundation to make a difference in the lives of children and families by gifting them with empowering books to help kids succeed and build their self-esteem.”
