Bags of Fun – Our Story

What began as a mother’s wish to offer a playful respite for her daughter fighting brain cancer has now become a movement to reclaim the innocence and playfulness of childhood for those that are threatened by the realities of their medical conditions. Bags of Fun are an essential tool that brings the power of play into the hospitals. For the child it brings instant excitement and a distraction from their pain, illness and anxiety. For parents, it is gratitude at a time when being thankful and hopeful is not often possible. Since inception of the program in 2004, Bags of Fun has fulfilled every request from the participating hospitals. It is our annual goal to be able to fund 100% of the requests and to not have to deny any requests.

Bags of Fun is independent of the hospitals and each Bag of Fun is funded by the Gabby Krause Foundation. Our organization is distinctive in that it focuses on unique play as a means of recovery for kids in the fight of their lives. This is a theme that we truly work and live by. All of our events focus on play…play for the family, play for kids that aren’t able to play, play for the adults. Through Gabby’s legacy of playing through her fight, we have created a program that every donor can connect to and at the same time, we connect to every donor.
