Helping Teen Males In Foster Care


Many of my Packaged For Success readers may not be aware of my passion to help teens in foster care so I’ve taken this week to bring you up to date. (Check out my previous blogs –

May is National Foster Care Month and we are nearing the end of our 3rd Annual Pack A Backpack Drive to collect and distribute backpacks (duffel bags and luggage) filled with soap, deodorant, lotion, toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, shaving items to teen males in foster homes, group homes, and homeless shelters.  Donations can be mailed to Nicki Sanders, PO Box 6368, Columbia, MD, 20145.

I want to share the success of three former former teens who left the system, found individual success, and now give back to foster teens and other youth.

  3. Exavier Pope – Love of His Foster Mom Propelled Him To Succeed
