2023 PECAA Gives Beneficiary:

In 2016, PECAA Gives was created to leave our “footprint” in the cities that welcome us each year by raising funds for a charity carefully vetted by the PECAA events team. Since then, through the benevolence of our members and Vendor Partners, PECAA Gives has donated more than $135,000 to local groups and foundations in need.

To continue the tradition of creating positive change, we have selected a special non-profit organization that truly makes a difference – My Bag My Story.

My Bag My Story Founder Cara Finger has dedicated her life’s work to raising awareness about the foster care and adoption system. Surprised and saddened by the frequent practice of foster children transporting their belongings in trash bags, Cara was moved to #EndTheTrashBag. Cara called on local designers and manufacturers to create a product anyone would be proud to carry.

For every bag purchased, one bag is donated to a foster child in need. My Bag My Story partners with local churches, businesses, and organizations to place the bags into the hands of 8,000+ children in the foster care system across Tennessee. Since its inception in 2019, close to 2,000 bags have been distributed.

2023 Annual Meeting attendees will have multiple options to support My Bag My Story including the ever-popular PECAA Gives Retail Store.

To make a donation prior to the Annual Meeting, visit mybagmystory.com and click the Donate Now! button to visit their PayPal donation site. When making a donation, please type PECAA Gives in the notes section.
