One good thing that has come of this unfortunate event is that I’ve been shown what a kind and supportive community of families surrounds Sprouting Knowledge.
Thank you. Matthia and I are so very grateful.
Many people have asked what was in our bags so they could see if they have things that would be helpful to donate.
Below is a list of items that were in our packs.
I will update it as donations come in.

And many other small items I’m probably forgetting like our birthday kit and spare bags, elastics, etc.
Most of these things were in lightweight bags to help keep them sorted, if you have simple stuff sacks you are not using we’d find them very helpful!
Thank you so much to Michael & Beth, Jesse, Remy, Jessica, Faith, Wendy and Amy who all donated cash that we can put toward purchasing new items.
