What is a Sweet Case?

The practice of giving children in foster care trash bags to move their belongs is heartbreak. It makes children feel disposable during one of the most difficult moments in their young lives. Together We Rise created the Sweet Case duffle bag program to show children in foster care that they are supported and loved.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Sweet Case?

A Sweet Case is a blue duffel bag filled with a teddy bear, blanket, crayons, coloring book, and a hygiene kit. Sweet Cases are geared towards children 10 and under, offering beautiful hand made designs. The custom details aim to uplift youth and remind children in foster care that they matter.

What is a Teen Duffle Bag?

To help teens transition into their new placements in foster care, we offer teen duffle bags. Unlike the Sweet Case, a Teen Duffle is a discrete, understated black bag. Featuring an embroidered Together We Rise logo on the corner of each duffle bag, we remind teens in foster care that they will rise up to the great future ahead of them.

Where do Sweet Cases go?

Sweet Case duffle bags are sponsored by our supporters. We redistribute them to children in foster care through our foster agency partners or directly to foster families requesting them for their children.

Who can receive a Sweet Case?

Sweet Case duffle bags are designed specifically for children 10 and under. However, if a child wants a Sweet Case, we are happy to provide one for anyone in foster care. For children over 10, Teen Duffles are a great alternative.
