Comfort Cases provide a proper bag, filled with comfort and essential items, to the brave youth in foster care on their journey to find their forever home.
I believe that all kids deserve to feel loved and that they matter. Kids entering or in the foster care system are dealing with so much to begin with. Not having any control of their situation, often feeling unwanted and unloved and then to carry their belongings around in trash bags, like garbage, is completely unacceptable to me. This organization works to provide foster kids with bags and supplies. http://www.nomoretrashbags.org
“I remember the first day Amaya came to stay with us. She was four years old, moving into her third foster home and carrying her entire life in a white trash bag,” said Comfort Cases founder Rob Scheer.
“Having experienced foster care myself, I was disgusted to see a child forced to carry around their things like they were garbage. We took her out to buy new clothes and she picked out a Cinderella nightgown.”
“From that moment, I knew we needed to make a change.”
