Hi Matt,

It is with a heart brimming with gratitude that I write to you today! First, I thank you and Single Minded Women sincerely for making My Stuff Bags Foundation your charity of choice for your special charity registry collection in honor of Liz and baby Madeline. Gifts of clothing and toys and other great “stuff” are pouring in for the abused, neglected and abandoned children we serve across America! They will become a part of individual My Stuff Bags for these children who so often enter shelters and foster care with nothing of their own. These donations are so important and so very welcome as we strive to send out the message to these children, through My Stuff Bags, that lots of people care about them. Even more important, Matt, is that you and Single Minded Women are helping spread the word about the plight of our country’s abused children; more than 300,000 are rescued each year from terrible situations and enter foster care. It’s unbearable that they should also have to suffer the indignity of shuffling from placement to placement with little or nothing of their own. I’ve always been convinced that people would do something about that if only they knew. Thank you for being a part of getting the My Stuff Bags message out.

Now for some very exciting news! We received a message just this morning that My Stuff Bags Foundation will receive a grant of $25,000 from an anonymous donor in honor of Matt, Liz and Madeline Logelin! Cash funding helps us purchase the My Stuff duffels, toiletries and toiletry bags and ship the My Stuff Bags across the nation. This grant will have such an impact and make it possible for us to reach so many more children!

I see that you live in the Los Angeles area; please consider calling us and coming to visit our headquarters and Volunteer Center here in Westlake Village, CA someday, and please bring little Madeline. We would all like to thank you personally for your support of My Stuff Bags.

Best wishes for Happy Holidays,


Janeen Holmes

to the anonymous donor…


are you fucking serious?

thank you so very much.

you are an amazing human being.

and thanks to everyone else who has donated or plans to donate…you don’t have to donate $25,000 or even $25. $1 goes a long way.

please consider donating to this charity...
