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.

    Fits so much more than you'd expect

    This bag is really brilliantly designed. You can jam pack all the different clever compartments, fold it over and think "that's never going to close". But the fabric and zips are so well places that it then zips up neatly with no straining. It's a fantastic size for weekend trips, when you want something that's easy to carry, but similar capacity to a wheel case.

    It's obviously not designed got backpacking, that's not it's purpose, but straps work well for moving around.

    Lovely bag

    We bought this for our son's birthday, and he will be taking it on holiday. We are all really pleased with it, and he was so glad that the purchase also helps care leavers. It's a lovely looking bag, and very practical with lots of good compartments, and feels very well made and sturdy.

    Madlug bags

    I was told about Madlug and what they do, so I thought I would at least try and help such a worthy cause. I really didn’t expect much from the bags to be honest, it was more for what Madlug stood for and what they did. Well I was totally shocked at how awesome the quality is on these bags. The amount of pockets and the quality of the product, I don’t think you can go and buy this in the shops. It’s that good. A really well thought out design and will truly serve its purpose. This will be my go-to travel bag from now on. I would highly recommend Madlug bags. Plus they are helping a real worthy cause.
