How many bags have been donated?
To date 25000 bags have been donated with a further 20,000 in production and they will be fully distributed over the summer of 2021.
What bag do the children get?
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 has a label that says “You are incredible” to remind every child that they have value, worth and dignity.
How do you give the donated bags?
In 2020 alone, we donated over 11,000 pack away bags across the UK and Ireland. These go to social workers in local authorities and foster carers, as well as directly to young people and their families.
How do you decide where the bags go?
Bags are donated at our own discretion according to where there is a need for them. We partner with various local authorities largely across the UK and Ireland, seeking out new partnerships through word of mouth.
100% Committed to our cause.
We're a certified social enterprise registered as a "Community Interest Company". This means that you can be assured that 100% of our profits and assets are locked to benefit children in care.

- AMAlex M.Verified BuyerReviewingBurgundy School BagI recommend this productRated 5 stars2 months agoExcellent Product for a Great Cause
I'm thrilled with my bag. I chose to purchase from Madlug because I wanted to support the cause. I was delighted to find that the bag I ordered was excellent quality, and met all of the specifications in the description. Very happy with my purchase. Would highly recommend.
- SCSara C.Verified BuyerReviewingNavy Blue School BagI recommend this productRated 5 stars2 months agoLove the bags, love the ethos.
This is the second Madlug we’ve bought for my daughter. They are great quality and lovely colours, only had to buy a second one because new school requires navy bag - the original is still in great shape after over a year of daily use and will be used on weekends. Only small silly suggestion is that the bag has great quality zips… which mean there’s no space to hang any key rings - which is what kids often like to do to personalise their bag! Just a thought for the school/kids bags.
