“Our friends at @nwi have a great story about the amazing generosity of actress/comedian @TiffanyHaddish, who helped us spread holiday cheer to more than 400 children! We’ve said it before, but thank you so much, again, for your donation, @TiffanyHaddish!” they wrote.

Foster care specialist supervisor Shanell Manuel heard Tiffany‘s childhood experience of using trash bags as suitcases inspired her generous donation.

“I’ve been in this agency for 18 years. I have been taking children out of homes and moving them to other homes, and when I see those garbage bags. It’s unfortunate that we still have to do that,” Shannell explained.

And so, after reaching out to Tiffany‘s She Ready Foundation, the star donated 100 pieces of luggage in time for Christmas.

“Often, it’s hard to buy gifts for teenagers in general. So to be able to give them something that they’re going to be tangibly using is always phenomenal and awesome — Miss Haddish made that possible,” said the department’s Ellis Dumas.

“Every child that is removed from their parents deserves to have a suitcase, a safe place to lay their head, and platform to follow their dreams,” she said on her website.
