The Blanket You Made Could Reach a Foster Child in a My Stuff Bag
We want to share with you a letter we received recently from Janeen Holmes, President/CEO of My Stuff Bags Foundation. We send some of the blankets you make to My Stuff Bags. They include a blanket in each bag that they provide to children in crisis.
Thank you for your compassion and concern for children in crisis. Your wonderful contribution of blankets will have an immediate impact on the lives of abused, neglected and abandoned children entering crisis shelters and foster care with no belongings and little hope.
My Stuff Bags send a profound message to hurting children—people care. Through the generosity of donors like you, providing childhood essentials and necessary funding, My Stuff Bags Foundation can genuinely say each bag is made with many loving hands. Together, when we provide a new blanket, stuffed animal and toiletry kit, along with fun toys, books and other great stuff, we can show a sad child in transition that they deserve the dignity of new possessions. We can restore their self-esteem and demonstrate that they are indeed part of a warm, loving family, the My Stuff Bags family.
We are very thankful that you have chosen to join us in our mission to reach out to children who so desperately need to know that others care. My Stuff Bags are a “lifeline” that lets them know they have not been forgotten. And we in turn will not forget your generosity and kindness.
