You can make a difference for a kid in foster care!
Every day, hundreds of children are removed from their homes for reasons of abuse, neglect and poverty. Over 400,000 youth live in the US foster system, and most entered the system carrying a trash bag of their most personal items simply because they have no other option.
GreaterGood.org partners with Together We Rise to support children living in the foster care system. Together We Rise has been helping children in foster care since 2008. They work with hundreds of foster care agencies and social workers across the US. Through its Sweet Case program, children are given personalized duffel bags to transport their most important belongings when transitioning from home to home. Each bag also comes with a teddy bear, hygiene kit and blanket. Their Birthday Box program helps a foster kid celebrate their birthday with a box that includes candy, party supplies and gift cards. Their Build-A-Bike program provides a reliable source of transportation for youth who need a way to get to school, work or visit siblings.
With your help, we can give these kids a sense of normalcy and the opportunity to simply enjoy childhood memories that are often taken for granted. You can let a child living in the foster care system know you care.
You can help provide a duffel bag for a new child entering the foster care system. Your donation will help children feel welcomed and unique during this difficult transition. Just $20 provides a birthday box, and just $25 provides a duffel bag for a new foster care child.
Together We Rise is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the way youth navigate through the foster care system in America.
