At Travel Makers, we truly believe in the importance of giving back, so we have partnered with the “It’s My Bag” charity. Many times, when a child is placed in the foster care system, they have only a trash bag with which to carry their possessions and clothes in. “It’s My Bag” was started to provide suitcases for these foster children, allowing some sense of normalcy to a difficult situation. Even the small switch from a trash bag to a suitcase is an enormous change for these underprivileged children.


To help “It’s My Bag” with their goal, Travel Makers is currently serving as the Maryland drop-off location for the program. We collect gently used suitcases, duffel bags, and book bags to provide to children in the foster care system. If you would like to make a donation of toiletries, pillows, blankets, or clothes along with your donation bag we will gladly accept those items as well.

As an added incentive for helping these children, Travel Makers will provide a $25 gift certificate for any of our travel services to anyone who donates a suitcase or any of the other types of bags!
