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 and blankets.

Care Bags Foundation - Who Can Get Involved?

Anyone can get involved - and that means you! You just need to have a sincere desire to help kids and be able to commit some of your time to help out. Here are some of the things you can do...
  • Donate new items or money, or sew bags and receiving blankets.
  • Encourage other peeps to get involved either by having a Care Bags party, or organizing a school club or fundraiser to donate items to the Foundation.
  • Adopt the Care Bags idea and start a similar organization in your own community. (Click here to find out how you can get a Care Bags Starter Kit).
  • Come up with your own ideas to help less-fortunate kids.

    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."
