Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

Bags4kids began in 2002 because seeing children arrive to our foster home with nothing at all was hard to watch day in and day out. We began filling diaper bags and backpacks with hygiene items, items to comfort a child, items to keep them busy and items to wear. We began with 11 bags. Here we are at 17,000 bags and counting. Each bag we make is age and gender appropriate. There are no razors or food items included. Some of the bags are handmade. As well as beanies, blankets, scarfs and baby items. So many different types of groups can get involved.....helping the children we serve. Crafting groups of all kinds and we welcome each and every donation. Which is tax detectable.

Our bags are all called "comfort bags" and are filled with 23 new items. You can also read our story on our web site or facebook page.
