Our backpacks are fill of essential items for a child entering into foster care, for many of these children it can be the very first time they have received items that they can call their own. During this extremely stressful time in their lives, our backpacks can bring a little joy and hope.

Here is a list of all the different items that we collect to go inside the back packs that we send out. Sometimes we’re given items like socks or pyjamas that we will allocate to as many back packs as we can. All the items are new with the exception of the products listed below.

Please note that all goods received need to be from a smoke free home. We rely on donations from the public to help us make and send out as many packs each year as we can. Thank you so much for your support.
