The Loving Luggage Project

The Loving Luggage Project was created for foster youth to help ease the stress of their transitions in (and out of) foster care. With your help, The Loving Luggage Project provides foster youth ages 3-18 with NEW carry-on luggage filled with items that are useful and that they will enjoy. Most kids in foster care transition between placements by putting their things in trash bags. Because most transitions are abrupt, trash bags are usually readily available. But, no one wants to put their belongings in trash bags -- trash bags are for trash. We decided on luggage on purpose. We want to give foster kids something (other than a bag) that is new, durable, and belongs to them. Luggage with wheels makes moving easier for everyone, especially smaller kids and/or kids with physical disabilities.
