No more trash bags for kids in foster care

When foster children move from home to home, they are usually given two trash bags to carry their belongings in. At Together We Rise, we know these children deserve better than that. To help foster kids have more positive experiences, we have volunteers like you decorate, stuff, and donate Sweet Cases all over the United States.

Our Sweet Cases are blue duffle bags stuffed with a teddy bear, a blanket, a hygiene kit, a coloring book, and crayons. Participants can purchase our Sweet Cases to be donated, which directly supports the children in foster care in their areas. Together We Rise wants children in foster care to feel like kids, not trash.

How we help children in foster care

Together We Rise helps children in several ways including three main programs we use to support children in foster care: Sweet Cases, Building Bikes, and our Family Fellowship Scholarship Program. Together We Rise has participants in every state fundraise to support these programs.

Without the help of participants across the United States, Together We Rise wouldn’t be able to help so many foster kids. Sweet Cases is our largest program, helping to replace trash bags with blue duffle bags to make the foster care transitions a little bit easier for children. When foster youth age out of the system, we help provide them bikes.

Many youth at the aging out age are unprepared and don’t have transportation, so we give them bikes so they’re able to get to their jobs and school classes. For former foster youth, we support them with a scholarship program. Our Family Fellowship is the largest scholarship program in the nation that benefits youth who have aged out of the system. Together We Rise’s Family Fellowship is a safe and supportive scholarship award that benefits successful youth who have aged out of the system. Our programs are growing and expanding thanks to our donors and corporate company supporters.
