For the past 25 years, readers across northern Michigan have found our ubiquitous little bags in their newspapers throughout the summer to call attention to the needs of children in foster care, and to remind you, our community, that foster and adoptive families are needed to help care for children in our communities.  

This year, some of you will still find the bags in your newspaper.  Others of you, in our effort to reduce costs and be kinder to the earth, will be asked to make your donation online.

For those of you who find one, please take the brown paper bag in your newspaper (the bag message is above) and turn it into a mailer by placing your donation in it, stamping it, and sending it back to us.  Or, make an online donation by clicking the yellow "Donate" button, found above and below.  Help us help our kids heal and grow, and be all they can be.

Thank you for your support of our work to nurture children and strengthen families.  Many thanks to our wonderful sponsors too!
