||A message from Mackenzie Snyder -
Founder, Children to Children:
"I began a project that I named Children to Children (CTC) to collect duffel bags and stuffed animals for children in foster care. I started this project after hearing from foster care children, Reader's Digest and a movie that foster children are given only a trash bag to put their belongings in when they move from home to home. This made me feel very sad.
They feel they are not cared about. So I decided to help. I collect duffel bags, small suitcases and backpacks to give to them so they will be able to carry their belongings. I put in a stuffed animal, so they will have something to cuddle so they won't be lonely. In this bag I also include a note from me to let them know that myself and the rest of the world do care about them.
If you are interested in helping, there are 3 ways to do it:
1. I ALWAYS need duffel bags and stuffed animals. You can send me your duffel bags or stuffed animals and I will distribute them throughout the United States. Send them to:
Children to Children
