Thank you for your support. We have delivered 235 bags so far!
It's My Very Own is a program for children who are removed from their homes due to the illegal activities of their parents. For example, in cases where Meth is manufactured in the home many of these children lose everything they have because it's all contaminated.
My Very Own provides a Bag of Love to each one of these children. The handmade cloth bag (about the size of a pillow case) contains several items, including a handmade quilt, a stuffed animal, and age and gender appropriate toys and personal care items.
Since these children are traumatized in some way we want these to be durable items that will last, please no dollar store toys.
Below is a list of suggested donations (Items must be new and in their original package, and no items needing batteries):
- Toy Cars
