Suitcases for Change

I recently did an illustration for an article about an inspiring 10 year old girl.  Her sister, a social worker, told her about foster children having to move around multiple times in their lives without a suitcase to hold their few belongings.  The children would use trash bags and whatever else they could find as they tried to find a permanent home.  The young girl set a goal to raise 300 suitcases to give to local foster children by the end of summer.  She surpassed her goal and by the end of the first year 4,000 suitcases were collected.  Ultimately her creative solution to a problem became an international non-profit organization.
