Mission Statement

It is Care Bags Foundation's mission, which is a legal, nonprofit charitable organization, to provide Care Bags filled with NEW essential, helpful, fun and age appropriate items for displaced, abused and disadvantaged children/youth in need world-wide. (ages baby-18).

Description

Care Bags Foundation was founded by eleven year old Anne Wignall in Jan. 2000, after she learned there were many children in her town and surrounding communities who were in need. With the help of numerous businesses and countless individuals who donate new essential, fun, safe and age appropriate items (such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, books, stuffed animals, toys, etc!), Anne fills 100+ Care Bags every month and gives them to numerous agencies serving needy children in Iowa, other states, and to children all over the world. The agencies distribute the care bags to displaced, abused suffering and disadvantaged kids around the globe. To date, Care Bags have brought hope, smiles and tangible gifts of love to over 11,000 deserving kids. Since we cannot help everyone in need, is our hope that other adults, kids and groups will join in helping children by beginning a similar project of their own. A Care Bags Starter Kit is available by email upon request. Learn more by going to www.carebags4kids.org
