2021 HoHoHope Backpacks - Fill a Bag, Fill a Heart - Hope Swag for Foster Children in your area
Fill a Bag, Fill a Heart
GOAL---> 125 Red HoHoHOPE backpacks donated by Dec. 20th, 2021
We invite you to create hope in the life of someone you don't know this holiday season. For our local area, we'll be donating filled backpacks to a non-profit called Pockets of Hope based in Sartell, Minnesota.
"Everyday children are rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment. These children are confused, scared, and desperate for security and comfort after being separated from family, home and possessions. Children often enter foster care with nothing. Pockets of Hope provides these children with new backpacks filled with personal care items they need and comfort items they can call their own. Our mission is to give foster children a sense of worth, bring comfort and provide a light of hope for a brighter future, one backpack at a time." ~Pockets of Hope
You can partner with us to provide HoHoHope backpacks through Pockets of Hope or you can create the same hope in your own town.
Option 1. YOU FILL IT! Purchase our HoHoHope Kit for $10 and we'll ship it to you with instructions and ideas of what to include in the backpack.
Google 'Foster care donation centers near me' to find a reputable non profit already helping area children where you can drop off your hope-filled bag as soon as possible.
Or consider donating it to your local police station, homeless shelter or Salvation Army. Fill out the little ‘you matter’ card and toss it in the bag too.
Option 2. WE FILL IT! Purchase our HoHoHope Kit for $20 & allow the Create Hope Cuffs Team to fill it for you so it can be donated to Pockets of Hope in your honor.
Your name will be written on the card, so they know who it's from. And we'll MATCH your $20!!! Total value of items in this bag will be $40 to ensure the child gets exactly what they need.

However you decide to participate, this filled HoHoHope Backpack will serve as a symbol of hope and care to a child or teen whose needs of tangible & intangible love are so necessary.
Now, if you’re thinking ‘how can I afford this?’ I suggest you get yourself to a local department store & purchase one of their $5 warm fleece blankets, stuff it in the red bag, add the note and revel in the bliss of giving without spending a lot.
