Why Give a We Care Packages©?

When a child receives a hand delivered care package filled with treats, socks, water bottles, arts & gives them hope. They feel loved and they  are filled with gratitude.


Why Give a Personalized Card?

Isn’t it fun to receive cards and be remembered on Your Birthday and Holidays?  Can you imagine being a child and not being remembered by any family?  Writing special notes lets kids without families know that they are Special and Remembered by caring communities!!!
