Welcome to It’s My Bag!
This site was created with one goal- to give every kid and teen in foster care their own bag. When a child is in foster care the heartbreaking reality is that their belongings are usually held in garbage bags. This sends a very damaging message to these kids and teens that they are as disposable as their belongings. Let’s stop relaying that message!
With the help of people like you, our donors, we can replace these garbage bags with suitcases, duffel bags and book bags so that every child in foster care can say, “It’s my bag!” Won’t you help us help others?
