My Usborne Books & More team is on a mission! We are teaming up to help the My Stuff Bags Foundation to provide comfort for children that are entering foster care. Our team has set a HUGE goal to raise $100,000, which will provide $150,000 in books to the most vulnerable children! These children feel lost and forgotten, and often have no personal belongings to give them comfort. 

I personally experienced the foster system as a young child. Being pulled away from family and sent to stay with complete strangers is SCARY! I'm thankful that I had my sisters to help me through, but not all children are that lucky. Having experienced what I did, I am so extremely touched that this foundation exists, and I want to help as many children as I possibly can! My personal goal is to raise $1000, which would contribute $1500 in books to the foundation with the UBAM match!

I hope you can find it in your heart to donate, as little or as much as you can, because every little bit helps! 

 

About The My Stuff Bags Foundation:

The My Stuff Bags Foundation provides comfort and a message of hope to abused and neglected children entering crisis and foster care through its unique program, My Stuff Bags.

Sadly, more than 300,000 children across America must be rescued each year from dangerous home environments. That's over 34 children per hour! Traumatized by the events leading to their rescue, these children often arrive without any of their own belongings: no favorite stuffed animal, no special "blankie." They are afraid and need something to hold onto!

 

What will your money provide? 

Since these children often have no personal belongings to take with them, we are looking to provide them with comfort items to help them through these tough times.

Young children will receive a Cuddle Bear Plush and Book set. The plush and book will provide much needed comfort.

Older children will each receive 2 books: Hello Happy! and No Worries! These books provide age-appropriate drawing and writing activities to help children work through their feelings and cope with stress and anxiety.
