so now that our business is open & doing ok, my boys & I have embarked on a project.

we are collecting used suitcases, duffle bags, &/or backpacks to donate to any foster child who needs one. most foster kids move from one place to the next by throwing their belongings into big garbage bags. breaks my heart to think about it. so if any of you have any sort of connections to help us out, I would appreciate it GREATLY!!

we've been at our local goodwill & salvation army - so far we have 11 suitcases!!! a drop in the bucket i'm sure but I put the word out on my facebook page & have had friends & family dragging out their luggage they don't need.

thanks everyone!

somewhat similar to what I've been doing with laptops/computers. I rebuild/fix them and give them to those who otherwise can't afford one.
