The backpacks in this kindea are a project started by the Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation. Stillbrave provides supportive, non-medical care for children with cancer, and their families.
Stillbrave's website describes this backpack project best: "Each pack provides the essentials needed to help a child feel comfortable during chemotherapy treatment. Items included are a soft chenille blanket, warm hat, hand sanitizer, emesis bags, masks, stuffed animal, a journal and pen, Happily Hungry Cookbook and many more wonderful items. The best part of the backpacks is searching through every zipper and pocket for something new. It's kind of a Stillbrave treasure hunt!"
Use this kindea to inspire your own backpack project or you can even sponsor a backpack via Stillbrave's website at Stillbrave.org. You can also purchase individual items for Stillbrave's ongoing backpack project through their Amazon Wish List. Go to http://www.stillbrave.org/ongoing-projects.html for more information.
