Bags of Fun Omaha began its journey in September 2019. Powered by the wish of a 6 year-old girl, Gabby Krause, we set off on a mission to provide every child in the Omaha area battling a life-threatening illness the POWER OF PLAY. Laughter, hope, relief, and a little sense of normalcy during a time that seems anything but normal. We delivered over 120 Bags of Fun in our first year of operation and as of June 2023, hitting over 600 bags of fun delivered since Day One! We have partnered with Fat Brain Toys, a local toy store to provide the core educational, developmentally appropriate, and engaging toys to fill the bags. We work alongside Nebraska Medicine child life specialists, staff at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, Boys Town National Research Hospital, Children’s Respite Care Center, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals as well as non-profit organizations like Angels Among Us, Heart Heroes and Endless Journey to provide these kids with bags of toys and activities individually crafted for each child. We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support from the Omaha community to make this all possible.
