The Spectrum Journeys Inc Blessing Bag project is a unique and special opportunity to show Mums/Carers of children on the Autism Spectrum that they are valued, cherished & appreciated. The Blessing Bags are packed full of pamper items & are beautifully packaged with an affirming card that encourages a mum/carer. This project is a donation based project.
Blessing Bags are given to schools and early
childhood services, free of charge, to distribute to mums/carers of children with Autism. The bags are designed to be an encouragement and full of delightful items that a mum may not buy for herself. It demonstrates that she is of value and
is an opportunity to encourage self care.
Please note - we do not give Blessing Bags out to individuals. We give the Blessing Bags to schools and early childhood services to distribute to their communities.
Please note, registration does not guarantee Blessing Bags, as it this project is purely donation based.

"I received a Blessing Bag and I wanted to say a huge thank you! The card made me cry as they were words I needed to hear this week. It came at just the right moment. Thank you to all the wonderful people that make it possible" - Melinda
"I had the pleasure of handing out Blessing Bags at the school where I work. What a privilege! All of the Mum's were blown away, said how the bags made them feel special and how it had made their day. One mum said she didn't feel deserving enough. What a great way to encourage these Mums. Thank you so much for your Blessing Bags!" - Sarah, Chaplain
