Review for Adventure Bags Inc., Auburn, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I ride in the Adventure bags motorcycle ride every year. Its the one ride I never miss. I was once a social worker for Child Protective Services and I have been there when a child is uprooted from the only environment they have ever known. This non-profit was not around when I was doing the job,but here's the thing, the situation is already difficult enough. It's stressful on the child, the workers, and the parents. Remembering to get toothbrushes and teddy bears is the last thing on anyone's mind in that situation and even if you do remember, there is no guarantee that all parties will be cooperative. I've heard parents go as far as to say things like, "If the 'State' wants him, then they need to buy his clothes," and refuse to allow the child to take anything with him when he is placed in Foster Care. So I think what adventure bags does is awesome. Just the fact that the child gets a book-bag and a toothbrush can be a really big deal in some situations.
