What is the mission of your cause?
To transform the way kids in our community experience foster care.
How would you use the $25,000 to address an unmet need in your community?
Our cause would focus on providing youth in foster care with duffel bags and suitcases in order to prevent them from traveling from home to home with only trash bags to carry their belongings. Every day, almost 1,600 kids enter the foster system in America, most with only two trash bags. In Los Angeles, there are roughly 30,000 foster kids which is one of the largest in the entire U.S. These kids deserve more than a trash bag, they deserve something to call their own. 100% of the funds will be used for goods that will directly benefit these kids and not for staffing or overhead. It is our desire to utilize these funds specifically to buy duffel bags, suitcases, teddy bears, hygiene kits, and other items. We want to provide over 1,000 kids in foster care with our suitcases.
Please share this with your friends and family because only the 40 causes with the most votes win!
