Super Bags
4 Super Kids

In times of crisis, when so many have lost so much – Super Bags 4 Super Kids offers a small glimmer of hope and happiness.

We’re a not-for-profit volunteer organisation, set up to help families and children who have lost their possessions, or been displaced during the floods that devastated the Northern Rivers of NSW in March 2022.

What started as a Facebook call out among friends for school bags, lunchboxes, and some new clothes for those who had lost everything to the floodwaters, has grown to be much more.

Our aim is to provide a few new and special items to each child affected by the Northern Rivers flood event, so they can have a some things of their own while in temporary housing, or with which to begin again in their new home.

Your donation – either financial to our GoFundMe account, or in the form of a Super Bag that you put together at home – will go directly to a family or child in need. 

These kids are special… they’ve been through so much, and we want them to know they have our love and support.
