I am excited to announce that I was once again awarded a grant from Disney to continue my work with Buddee Bags! I am so thankful for the incredible support from Disney and for the recognition of my service to the community.
I have spent the last few days thinking about a new project that will help children in my community. I have decided to help support The Fiaria Project as my winter service project! The Fiaria Project is an amazing organization that focuses on “making placement transitions easier for foster families in the Bucks County and Philadelphia area by providing foster children with essential clothing, toiletries, and other basic items.”
When children are placed into foster care (one child every two minutes in the USA!) they often don’t have time to gather any items to take with them. Buddee Bags is going to help by making these transition kits for children in Bucks County.
YOU CAN HELP!
I will be sewing handmade pillowcases, burp cloths, and drawstring bags to donate to the project. I am hoping that a special pillowcase to call their own may be a small way to help these children feel loved and cared for. There are many other items needed to make the transition kits. Any donations will help. I’ll be updating this page as I receive donations in order to let everyone know the most needed items. As always, if you prefer to send a donation, I will buy the supplies needed to complete the kits.
