duffle bags for the children
Organized by: Crystal Loveland
I have recently started Foster care. As I watch these children come into our home, we have seen them come with little of nothing or carrying everything in trash bags. It has truly touched my heart. I have had a pull at my heart even before starting this journey to do more for these children. I seen on pintrest and Facebook about families giving duffle bags teddy bears ect.to the children and it's something g that peeked my interest. The children's Division has many resources to help, and let me tell you, they have helped us so much when we have needed the help getting the thing for the children that they need... but I still feel I wanna do more for these kids. They come to our homes and are scared and feel alone. I wanted to be able to give them a little something that may give them a little piece of security in all the craziness going on.something to call theirs. Our plan is to get duffle bags. Some sort of stuffed animal, some toiletries ( such a tooth brushes, deodorant for the teens, ) just to name a few. In laclede County mo alone there is on estimation 130 to 140 kids in Foster care. That is one county. If we had the money or the home I would taken in everyone one of them. But I'm not a billionaire nor do I have that many rooms. So since I cannot give each and everyone of them a home. Let's see if we can help in other ways. We are not asking for hand outs. We just wanna make a difference in these kids lives. So if u feel as we do then I ask please do what u can. By either saying an extra prayer for these kids, or buy helping us to just give these kids a little something to call their own, or join us in welcoming these kids into ur home and give them a place to stay while they need the extra love for a time in their lives. It's not easy but it is so worth it. We will be making a Facebook page that u can go and like and we will post pictures of receipts and things that we will be buying for these babies so that each of u who donate will see where ur money is going, and we are not just scamming u. Thank u all for ur help no matter if it is just an extra prayer for the children or ur money or ur home.
