Teddy Bears and Duffel Bags For Foster Kids

Between 430,000 and 530,000 US children are in foster care.  When these children transfer from one home to another, their clothes are packed into garbage bags.  Nine years ago, a 7-year-old girl decided to make a difference for these children without a permanent home.  She began collecting stuffed animals and duffel bags for foster care distribution.  To date, over 60,000 foster children have benefited from one teenager’s goal to make a difference.  Her efforts are now under the auspices of Children to Children.
