When I was first approached about participating in the Hero Undercover Anthology, what stuck out for me was that this would be a chance for me to give back. You see each author involved is donating their royalties earned on this set to a charitable organization of their choosing. There is one that is near and dear to my heart. It’s a worthwhile cause that helps children.
So today, I want to use my time with you to introduce you to Cooper’s Totes in Los Angeles. What this organization does is provides a Tote filled with tangible items offering comfort and hope to kids entering the uncertain and scary world of the foster care system.
Cooper’s Totes was founded by two families in Los Angeles who both have connections to the foster care system. Through their work, they are honoring the lives of their loved ones by putting a smile on a child’s face, one tote at a time. Originally, it was begun and inspired by one of the founder’s father and the other founder’s desire to foster children. From there Cozy Totes was born. Then in April of 2015, one of the founder’s lost her baby boy, Cooper, shortly after his birth. So to honor Cooper, and to bring his bright shining light of joy to as many children as possible, the organization’s name was officially changed to Cooper’s Totes.
What does a foster child find in their Tote? Each bag is made by gender and age groups. They are filled with hygiene products (toothbrush, deodorant, band aides), cozy socks, coloring books, drawing tools, a few snacks because many of these children are hungry but afraid to ask for food, toys, something special, novelty items, pajamas, blankets, night light, and story book.
For me, the founders of Cooper’s Totes are unsung heroes, giving comfort and joy to kids through the donation of their time, effort, and care. If you would like to learn more about this wonderful organization, you case visit their website at: http://www.cooperstotes.com/.
