Why Sponsor a Shopping Spree?
Helping foster youth is one of Foster Love's core goals. When these young individuals enter the foster care system, they often have nothing but the clothes they are wearing. That's why we are dedicated to providing them with new clothing and hygiene products.
We have witnessed firsthand the incredible impact that new clothes and proper hygiene can have on foster youth. It's not just about giving them tangible resources, but also about restoring their dignity and granting them privacy during this challenging period.
By offering these essential items, we aim to address the self-esteem and depression issues that are more prevalent among children in foster care. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these deserving young individuals.

How Do Self-Esteem Building Shopping Sprees Help?
Introducing the Foster Love Self-Esteem Building Shopping Spree initiatives - empowering foster youth to express their individuality through clothing and grooming choices! Many foster children have never had the chance to decide what they wear or own, relying on donated or secondhand items. But now, we're giving them the opportunity to choose new clothing for themselves and build their own unique identity. Join us in making a difference and giving these deserving young people a chance to shine!

Thank you for taking my son James on a shopping spree. He can not stop showing everyone his new sneakers, a blessing onto him and our family.
This is the first time that I got to pick out what I wanted. It was weird, like, wow, I could just have this jean jacket. I could have this skirt and no one has used it before. I can't believe it.
I feel good in these jeans. They are mine, just mine
Thank you for sending my kids clothing bundles. This is great support for the new school year. They grow up too fast, it is hard to keep up as a parent.
