What is the Buddy Bag Foundation?
Imagine if your whole world changed in a day. Imagine having to leave everything you own and everyone you know.
Buddy Bags provide some comfort when all else is removed.
You may be shocked to learn 48,000 children require emergency accommodation in the UK each year. Children fleeing violent situations often have to leave home quickly, without the chance to collect basic items. These children arrive in emergency accommodation with just the clothes they are wearing.
The Buddy Bag Foundation provide Buddy bags which have essential items for thousands of children on arrival in emergency accommodation. Buddy Bags help restore a sense of safety and security into Children’s lives during a traumatic time, which is one of the first steps to recovery. They help to make this transition a little easier. Buddy Bags are something children can call their own, no matter where they go.
Buddy Bags contain new and essential items, such as toiletries, pyjamas, underwear, as well as comfort items such as a book, photo frame and Teddy bear. Each bag will also include a postcard that they can return to the foundation as a Thank you.
Buddy Bag Brigade – Volunteer Opportunity - Every two weeks volunteers, individuals or large companies, who are looking for community projects for their staff to get involved in, will meet at a venue's throughout the UK to make up the bags which will then be stored and distributed to the centres.
We are committed to 100% of the monies raised going into the supply of Buddy Bags!
We are ethical, authentic and genuine.
