Our Beginnings As A Company

Several years ago Brandon & Everlean started preparing care bags for the homeless in their community.  The care bags would include toiletries, food, and a blanket.  They became foster parents and during that process they realized that kids in foster care needed care bags as well instead of carrying around their belongings  in trash bags. They started preparing love bags that included toiletries, a toy, and a learning item. They have decided to start this non-profit so that they could help even more people.
