From a fragile baby to a frightened toddler to an overwhelmed teen, a Hope Pack is often the first thing to provide comfort to a child on what is often the worst day of his or her life. At Carrying Hope, every dollar we receive goes directly to making more Hope Packs, but we need your help to make sure that every child who is entering the foster care system in Central Texas receives one. If you’re looking for a way to give back, we hope you will consider sponsoring a child.
Your gift of $600 will provide Hope Packs to more than a half-dozen children who are entering the foster care system.
Your gift of $200 will provide Hope Packs for a sibling group that is entering the foster care system.
Your gift of $85 will provide 1 Hope Pack to a child who is entering the foster care system.
Carrying Hope is so grateful for our amazing sponsors who allow us to distribute incredible, high-quality products to children entering foster care.
Our toy sponsor, Relevant Play, whose products were recently named one of The New York Times’ favorite “creative toys to keep kids busy at home,” has donated thousands of amazing toys for us to include in our Hope Packs. They have also created a Bundle of Hope play pack that directly benefits Carrying Hope. Each Bundle of Hope includes a Mad Mattr Super Pack (14 oz. of Mad Mattr — 7 oz. each of Blue and Green) with 2 Ultimate Brick Makers, 6 Extruders, a safe cutting tool, and a 10 oz. bag of Mad Mattr Purple for $24.99. AND, WITH EACH BUNDLE OF HOPE PURCHASE, RELEVANT PLAY WILL DONATE 20 OZ. OF MAD MATTR TO CARRYING HOPE! If you’re looking for awesome birthday gifts or Christmas presents and also want to give back, this is a perfect way to do both at one time! Purchase a Bundle of Hope here.
