Who We Are
Belonging Bags was created by mothers who want to address two crucial needs in our community of parents who care for chronically ill children.
1) Tangible need: Provide a fun, personalized bag to hold our stuff and serve as a “go bag.” This rolling bag is roomy enough for your clothes and toiletries and is pre-filled with homey, cozy, soft, and fluffy bedding as well as an air mattress to use on top of those awful pullout couches in the hospital.
2) Emotional need: Provide a concrete opportunity for friends and family to offer empathetic connection and support while their loved one is caring for their child in the hospital.
Our hope, as Belonging Bags grows, is to bridge the gap between “let me know if I can do anything to help” and genuine supportive action.
