We received new luggage for Christmas and now we show up to the airport in style whenever we travel. We even have several different types of luggage we can use depending on the situation. When we learned that foster kids are sometimes forced to carry all of their belongings to a new strange house with nothing but a garbage bag so we wanted to get involved. Together we rise focuses on improving the experience kids have in the foster care system. They provide bags the kids can use to move their stuff, stuffed animals to comfort them in the new home, and several other services all aimed at helping this often overlooked group of kids. $0.94 out of every dollar you donate goes directly to their program which is impressive. We hope to get more involved with this organization in the future and potentially even spend some time working with one of our local branches.
