Along my Blog reading travels, I came across Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids. Its a site (and blog) committed to putting together backpacks, similar to an overnight bag, for children and babies who are in or going in to foster care.
I was quite interested and impressed by these ladies initiative and heart, particularly because Foster Care is something that we want to be involved with in the future.
They are giving these children, who have been taken from everything they know, not only things that meet their needs i.e clothes, nappies, but also something that belongs to them, where ever they are moved to.
I am definitely getting involved with this one, and ask you to take a look at what they're doing, and maybe you can help out also.
Some of the things they are currently seeking most urgently are:
Clothes sizes 5 and up for boys and girls (Pre-loved is welcome)
Undies - boys and larger sizes for girls
Baby items such as nappies, wipes and bottles
You can read all of the items that go into the backpacks here.
