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."

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
