Take the #BagBusters Challenge!


Starting May 1, 2023 Comfort Cases is inspiring nationwide change in the foster care system through The Bag Busters Challenge. We are asking 1,600 of our friends to become Bag Busters this May (National Foster Care Awareness Month) by signing up to become a $10/month Bag Buster. Each Bag Buster who signs up will ensure the process of handing a child a trash bag as they enter foster care is wiped out and replaced with a Comfort Case and/or Comfort XL Duffel Bag. 

Help The Bag Busters Challenge go viral on social media by posting a short (60 seconds or less) video and use the hashtag #BagBusters with a link to our Bag Busters donation page:  

Become a Bag Buster

The Bag Busters Challenge

When children are entering the foster care system, they are provided a trash bag and told to grab all their treasured belongings. When a child’s possessions are thrown into a trash bag, they are not receiving a positive message about their worth and value as members of the community. Every child deserves to feel a sense of dignity and hope.  Every child deserves a Comfort Case that includes a blanket, a stuffy, toiletries and more!

Give. Care. Share.

How The Bag Busters Challenge Works:

Become a Bag Buster by donating just $10 a month! Then, pat yourself on the back – you did a good thing and in just one year your $120 will help cover the cost to ensure that 12 children get a Comfort Case and/or Comfort XL. 

Next, share how you care and ask your friends, family and co-workers to do the same. Log into your favorite social media account and begin by sharing (in your own way) the experience that thousands of children have each year as they enter the foster care system. Be sure to use the hashtag #BagBusters and tag us @ComfortCases

Help us get to 1,600 Bag Busters in May!
During National Foster Care Awareness Month, Comfort Cases wants to immediately register a minimum of 1,600 new #BagBusters to provide Comfort Cases® and/or Comfort XL duffel bags to youth entering or transferring into a foster care facility. The program is set to grow throughout the year (and beyond) by having thousands more accept the #BagBusters Challenge in every state, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom.

Trash Bag Stories

Trash Bag Stories was founded to give light to the stories of children in foster care and their memories of the trash bag they received upon their entry into foster care. Our founder, Rob Scheer, experienced this during his foster care journey as well as when his husband, Reece Scheer, and him adopted their five children.

Please take a moment to listen to Rob’s story, and if you or someone you know is willing to share your own experience we would love to hear from you!  Our purpose for gathering these stories is to help individuals understand why Comfort Cases is steadfast in our mission to provide children in foster care with a backpack to bring dignity and hope through Comfort, Community, Character, and Compassion.
