“We put a book in every single case. And the book is to make sure they understand, just like with our kids, it’s not the color of their skin that separates all of us but it is our education level. We want them to love to read.”
Compassion and love starts at a young age, so does hate.
Reading made me a better person… When things were uneasy, I would escape into a world that was better than my own. Not only that, but the characters in these books taught me more about life than I was learning from my surroundings.

Quick summary if you can’t watch the video:
Rob and Reese Scheer adopted four children from the foster care system. When their children arrived, each of them had all of their belongings in trash bags.
Rob Scheer was also in the foster system as a child, forty years earlier. He was baffled to see children are STILL being sent on their way with their belongings in a trash bag, ultimately leading a child to feel like trash.
Rob and Reese decided they needed to do something, and started Comfort Cases.
From their FB page Comfort Cases:
“Thousands of children enter the foster care system each year. Most carry little more than the clothes on their backs. We founded Comfort Cases on a mission to provide the essentials to these brave children on their journey to find home.“
