Young Entrepreneur Series – Care Bags Fashion

September 29, 2011

Anni Wignall today

Annie Wignall of Newton, IA is the founder and director of the Care Bags Foundation, an organization she started when she was eleven years old. Care Bags provides essential, fun, safe, and age appropriate things (games, toothbrushes, books, etc.) to kids during difficult times in their lives.

Care Bags go to over 800 disadvantaged, abused, and displaced kids every year and are distributed by 20 agencies serving over 80 towns in Iowa as well as going to other states for disaster relief and to needy kids all over the world via Airline Ambassadors.

Using the Care Bags Starter Kit, other young people have adopted Annie’s program and are implementing it in their own communities. Annie got the idea to start this project after she learned there were lots of kids in crisis situations who have to leave their homes with very few of their own belongings.
