)-- Rob & Tristan, hosts of a popular vlog supporting the foster community, announced on Rob & Tristan's Foster Life that with the help of viewers they will give away a 1,000 duffel bags. “Many times kids coming into foster care have 10 minutes to pack everything they own into trash bags or Walmart sacks. At the same time, the caseworker is telling them how much they care. Many youth express this sends a very confusing message,” Rob continued on Monday’s show “some feel like we send the message their things are trash." Tristan goes on to explain, “Just the thought of showing up to a strangers home where you are going to live is tough, really tough. Then having your life in trash bags steels your dignity and is embarrassing.”
Foster Life's company Foster TV LLC claims 250,000 kids on average will come into state custody this year in the United States. Most youth will have an average of 8 placement moves while in custody. 85% of those moves will be done with trash bags or grocery sacks. FOSTER TV plans on giving away 4,000 duffel bags to State and private agencies across the United States within a year.
