How Do Sweet Cases Help
Children in Foster Care?

Sweet Case duffle bags are given to children as they enter foster care or are transitioning into a new placement or forever home. Each Sweet Case duffle bag has a detachable custom panel that is decorated with encouraging statements and fun images. We pack these suitcases with new comfort and hygiene items. Regardless of whether the child enters foster care with only the clothing on their backs or they have time to gather their belongings, every child is given a dignified way to transition and move into a new home. Kids are not trash, period.

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 handmade designs. The custom details aim to uplift youth and remind children in foster care that they matter.

Are There Options for Teens?

Yes! 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.

How Much of My Donation Goes Towards Sweet Cases?

92% of all donations go directly towards the sponsored program. Together We Rise is committed to ensuring that your support is directly reaching children in foster care nationwide. For more insight on our financials, please review our financial documents here.

Why Should I Participate in a Sweet Case Team Building Service Project?

There are plenty of ways you can help children in foster care. Sponsoring and participating in a Sweet Case team building service project is a great way to connect directly to your community while providing new items that fill a need.

The first step to helping foster kids is deciding how you would like to help.

Then host the event at your office, house, church, or even the Together We Rise HQ!

Decorate duffle bags for foster children complete with a teddy bear, hygiene kit, and blanket. Most children entering foster care receive just two trash bags for their belongings, but they deserve more!
