Keenan Healthcare is delighted to partner with and become a proud supporter of Madlug – ‘Every bag gives dignity’ which was founded in 2015 by Dave Linton.
A man whose only experience in the luggage industry was bags of enthusiasm. This 40-something Youth Worker was heartbroken to learn that most children in care transport their worldly belongings in a bin
bag. In that moment, Dave set out to do something about it. With just £480, he started Madlug and came up with our ‘Buy one Give one’ approach: with every bag you purchase, one will be given to a child in care.
How Madlug help:
The cost of every bag in their shop covers: a free bag for a child in care and the item you choose. They have worked with Care experienced young people and Health Trusts to develop a giving bag that is centered around the needs of children in care.
Madlug's giving bag:
The bag itself is unbranded to avoid stigma. It folds away to fit neatly into a sock drawer or a Social Worker’s car boot without wasting storage space. And each bag is labeled that says “You are incredible” to remind every child that they have value, worth and dignity.
