The life of children in care is often transitory with some Queensland children being placed in up to 35 homes said Nadine Wright, founder of Hope for Our Children (HFOC).
The Big Bag Event is hosted by HFOC in response to the plight of children in care.
“Unknown to many, kids in care often use plastic garbage bags to carry their particulars from home to home. We think these kids deserve better and decided to put packs together for kids in the Toowoomba area,” said Nadine.
“We want to give them something that belongs to them. Reinforcing that they are a person, with their own sense of identity and belonging. We’re making little bags for little people!” she said.
Needed!Hope for our Children are asking for donations to help create the packs.
