Hello, my name is Noah Jones. My family participated in the Foster/Adopt program in Kentucky. As we have learned about the system, I was told children have to use trashbags to put their belongings in as they leave their homes. I feel that by putting their favorite things in a garbage bag we are sending a message to children in crisis that they and their stuff are not worth any more than trash. I have decided to make a small difference. By giving each child a proper piece of luggage to use as they move, we are helping these children maintain their dignity. Since our beginning, we have collected more than 5000 bags for the children of Kentucky. We believe they are worth so much more than the situation they find themselves in. I want to make A Case for Dignity, will you help?
Imagine you wake up to strangers telling you that you need to leave your home....right now. Imagine you see the strangers grabbing your favorite toy, your best pair of jeans, your blanket and putting them in garbage bags. Now imagine you are 16....11.....5.....2 and all you know about trashbags is that you put garbage in them.
Hundreds of children experience this every year in the state of Kentucky as they are moved into the foster care system. Help us improve this transition by giving each child who must leave their home a proper piece of luggage to place their belongings. No child should feel like they or their precious things are trash.
We want to start to make a case for dignity. Will you help?
