This Giving Tuesday you can help bring comfort to a child affected by violence.

For many of us, the experiences these children have endured are unimaginable.  The pain and loss they’ve experienced in their short lives is greater than anyone should ever know. Buddy Bags were created by the Alannah & Madeline Foundation as a way to start bringing comfort to children affected by violence.

Each Buddy Bag contains a teddy for reassurance and company, a book for entertainment and distraction, pyjamas, socks and underwear, their own pillow case, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a face washer, a photo album for keeping precious drawings and pictures in and the bag itself is a sturdy backpack that can also be used as a school bag.

Buddy Bags aren’t the solution to the problem of children experiencing or witnessing violence, but they are a start.
