THE STORY:

TOGETHER WE RISE CORPORATION wrote -

During a child's most vulnerable time in their life, they deserve more than a trash bag to travel from home to home.

Help us provide thousands of children the right to travel with dignity with their own personalized duffel bag, teddy bear, blanket, hygiene kit, crayons, and coloring book.

Sweet Cases vs Trash Bags

 

Because a child's belongings are never trash.

 

Picture this: A 5yr old girl is being told by a Police Officer and a Social Worker that she has to leave with them. Her parents are in another room yelling and crying. They quickly gather some of her things into a trash bag and take her from her home. When she is taken to her foster home she is surrounded by new things, new smells, and new people. She has to unpack her belongings from a trash bag.

 

We can do better.

 

Picture this: A 12yr old boy is taken from his home. He has nothing of his own, not even his clothes. You see, he had to put on different clothes because his mother was running an active meth lab in his home and his stuff is contaminated. When he gets to his foster home he doesn’t even have a trash bag to unpack.

 

We are working with Together We Rise to raise money so we can provide local foster care children with “sweet cases” to give to children coming into care. These duffel bags will be decorated with fun designs and encouragement, filled with pillow pet/stuffed animal, coloring books/crayons, blanket, and hygiene kit that will belong to them and go with them throughout their journey.

 

We are looking to raise at least $500 to be able to provide 20 “sweet cases” to our local Children’s Division.  Would you emotionally support a child by sponsoring a bag? Individuals/ churches/ school/ businesses can sponsor bags at $25 a bag
