Styled to meet your travel needs, while helping you stand out as someone who cares, it’s a great choice for a school bag or for regular daily use. Made of durable 300D fabric, it has a roll-top closure as well as padded adjustable straps and back panel for day-long comfort. A zippered front pocket with organiser section and internal zipped pocket are ideal for carrying stationery or valuables.

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.

This is without doubt one of the best bags I’ve ever bought! From its excellent design to the brilliant manufacturing and even more so Madlugs amazing buy one give one policy. I have a wife that was in “the system” and the amount of times she’s told me how bad it made her feel having to live from black sacks, still to this day making her cry, and just wishing there was something, someways of helping the situation?! Well now you can! So I’d recommend that as my title says just but one!!!!!

I have been looking for an affordable practical & adaptable backpack/bag for years. This fits the bill. It is the right size, is well made and has no external mesh pockets. Full marks. The donation of a bag to a child in care is a very welcome bonus.

Really happy with this bag. I'd considered the purchase for a long time and very glad I went for it. The bag is high quality, roomy, stylish and most importantly, very comfortable. It sits flush against your back so even if you've loaded it up with laptop, library books, shopping, it doesn't pull or strain. And best of all, it's great to know that by purchasing I've made a small difference to a child leaving the care system. Would 100% recommend.
