Each year the Water Buffalo Club selects one charitable organization to raise funds to support as its End of Year Campaign. For 2018, the Water Buffalo Club selected Hope In a Suitcase.
Please join with us in helping to support Hope In A Suitcase's mission to provide children and teens in foster care with a suitcase/duffel bag, along with basic essentials and comfort items, to make their transition and circumstances just a little easier and more dignified.
Hope In A Suitcase (HIAS) is a volunteer-driven organization that relies on our community to provide tangible support and reassurance to our city’s most vulnerable and hardest-to-reach children. Hope in a Suitcase continues to make a great impact on children and teens in and entering Los Angeles foster care. Many of these children arrive with nothing but the clothes on their backs or a few items carried in a plastic trash bag.
Please join the Water Buffalo Club's efforts to support the important work of Hope In A Suitcase this holiday season. Every dollar has a real and tangible impact -every dollar helps to support a bag full of hope and makes a foster child’s transition and circumstance a little easier and more dignified. HERE’S WHAT YOUR INCREDIBLE GENEROSITY CAN PROVIDE
$125: For every $125 donated, Hope In A Suitcase is able to provide one Fully-Loaded Suitcase or Duffel Bag, each generally containing a blanket, pajamas, 1-2 comfortable changes of clothing, a sweatshirt or jacket, undergarments, socks, toiletries and age-appropriate comfort items (e.g. a small stuffed animal, a journal, a book, a nightlight, a handwritten note of support, etc.).
$2,500: Provides a "Shopping Day" for 20 Foster Tweens/Teens, who are invited to come and choose for themselves from a selection of brand new, high quality merchandise to fit their personal body types, tastes and needs. Typically, each child walks away with a suitcase or duffel bag filled with new school clothing, athletic wear, undergarments, sleepwear, books, a pair of shoes, art supplies, toiletries and more.
