LUCAS LOVE HEALTHCARE ARE SUPPORTING MADLUG UK
Madlug is the bag brand that helps give dignity to children in care. It is a lifestyle brand raising awareness of the value and worth of children in care along with helping them make their way with dignity.
One child enters the care system across the UK and Ireland every 15 minutes. More often than not, they have nothing more than bin bags or plastic shopping bags to carry their precious belongings from place to place.
“Buy One – Give One”
With every Madlug purchased, Madlug gives a packaway travel bag to a child in care to help them move with dignity. They believe that no child should carry their life in a bin bag or plastic shopping bag.
Lucas Love Healthcare are joining a number of teams that support Madlug by purchasing Madlug bags that will be given to members that joins Lucas Love Healthcare and will also be included in other promotional events.
We, at Lucas Love Healthcare are committed to their cause and will continue to support them in the hope to raise awareness for their brand and let others see what amazing work they do and also encourage others to get involved and help make a difference to children in care.

HOW MADLUG WAS FORMED:
In the spring of 2014 while Dave Linton was attending an introduction to a fostering course, he was shown a video interview with a young girl in a wheelchair who made the following statement:
“Health Trusts don’t provide suitcases. Sometimes foster carers loan us a suitcase but more often our belongings are moved in black plastic bin bags and we lose our dignity”.
This statement really stuck with Dave and for the remainder of the evening he thought of nothing else but the fact that these children’s belongings are being transferred in bin bags.
He was moved immediately to think of ways in which he could help these vulnerable children make their way with dignity. As Dave began his research and considered many possible solutions he was continually drawn to the value and worth of children in care and the fact that they deserve to make their way with dignity. He was also drawn to the fact that the widespread use of bin bags to move the belongings of children and young people in care is a global issue.
It was at this point Madlug™ (Making a Difference Luggage) was born. A lifestyle brand raising awareness of the value and worth of children in care along with helping them make their way with dignity.
We hope this touches you as much as it did Lucas Love Healthcare.
Help us help them!
