F.A.Q.

Q: What is My Foster Kids Foundation Inc.?

My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. is dedicated to helping foster parents and foster children transition into a traditional family setting. Children are often removed from unstable environments with little notice and with very few belongings. Foster parents are often asked to take in children with little notice and little time to prepare for the child; the child’s age, gender and special needs are factors which effect preparedness on the part of the foster family.

Q: What does My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. do?

The transition into a foster family can be difficult and many needs are often overlooked as the child’s safety and wellbeing are the initial priority. Once life starts back up, foster families find themselves struggling to fund the ongoing care and meet those unexpected needs. My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. is dedicated to making the child’s journey into the foster care system as seamless as possible by providing foster family’s with those comfort things and necessities that are often second thoughts. Donations from our partners provide foster families with the ongoing support that they need while providing the children a second chance at happiness in a transitional space.

Q: What is the goal of My Foster Kids Foundation Inc.?

The goal of My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. is to make a difference in every child’s life that is in the foster care system; to help dedicated, loving foster families with necessities that are often overlooked; and to preserve the well-being of vulnerable children in all communities by ensuring dignity in the process.

The proceeds from Fosters reStore will help fund educational programs and scholarships for foster children all across the country.

Q: Why is My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. contacting your organization?

The purpose is to spread awareness of our goals and to seek support from local companies with a rich history of giving back to the communities. My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. is seeking your support as we strive to meet our goal in making the transition into foster care easier, by providing children and families with things such as a stuffed animal, a special toy, a toothbrush, or by providing financial assistance to foster parents in obtaining the necessities a growing child needs.

Q: How can your organization contribute to My Foster Kids Foundation Inc.?

My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. has a list of items we are running short of and we have several layers of financial support that we have outlined for you as well. We thank you for your time and consideration in helping our foundation and we look forward to hearing from you.

You can donate all new and gently used clothing, all sizes, at any of the locations listed here. We would love to take in toys and stuffed animals, but we just don't have the storage for those items.  However, we will take new toys in the package and make sure they get to foster kids for their birthdays or Christmas.

If you have an organization that would like to do a clothing drive or fundraiser, please contact David Fricke at dave@myfosterkids.org and we can tailor a program to fit your specific needs.

Q: What is Fosters reStore?

Fosters reStore is the retail division of My Foster Kids Foundation, Inc.  This is the store where we take all your donations and put them on display for sale.  The store is open to the general public to shop, and all profits benefit educational programs and scholarships for foster children.

The best part about Fosters reStore is the foster children get to shop for FREE!  We do deliver emergency placement clothing and needed items, but there's nothing better than seeing the smiles on these kids faces as they get to shop for themselves.  We're empowering these kids in a time of their life where they have no control.
