Our Backpacks

A little extra comfort to welcome these children goes a long way.

Adopted children often arrive at their new homes with little more than the clothes on their backs. The Jockey Being Family Foundation wants to change that. Our signature Backpack Program provides newly adopted children with their own personal backpacks, customized with their new family name’s initials and filled with a Jockey Being Family® blanket and teddy bear.

“The backpack was such a special gift for our little girl – and for us. It was the first time we actually saw her new initials on anything. And there they were embroidered on this backpack. It was such an incredibly touching moment and one that we’ll never forget.”
