Care Bags Foundation - The Basics
The Care Bags Foundation helps over 1,200 kids
worldwide each year, which means that they fill more than 100 bags a month
at the Foundation's headquarters. The bags can be filled with almost anything and are often made to fit the needs of each child according to their age and gender
. Some of the more popular items include toothbrushes, soap and shampoo, but kids definitely like getting items like stuffed animals
, toys, books

Care Bags Foundation - A Word From the Creator
Annie Wignall feels the biggest reward is knowing her Care Bags Foundation is making a difference
in someone's life and bringing smiles to kids' faces by letting them know that people love and care
about them. It's also a great feeling to be able to get other people involved. "Every kid deserves to have the things they need and to know they're loved
," says Annie. "I love kids and wanted to do something to help make their lives easier and better."
