My Bag My Story exists to provide duffel bags for kids in foster care. Your purchase of a bag will fund another for a child entering state custody. We believe that having his or her own bag allows a child coming into state custody to maintain dignity and have a sense of pride and self-worth. These children are faultless victims and even though they are leaving bad living situations, the transitions during foster care can be frightening and traumatic. As they enter a new home environment with people they often don’t know, having their few worldly possessions with them can be the only sense of familiarity and security they have. Having to carry their belongings from foster home to foster home in a garbage bag or grocery sack erodes their sense of value and self-worth. We want to provide these children with the same sense of value, love, and encouragement that all children need and deserve.
