Bags of Fun Omaha exists to bring joy, laughter and relief to every child fighting a life-threatening disease or condition.
Our goals is to not turn away any child. We believe in the Power of Play to bring a welcome distraction during times of difficulty. It brings a child and the parents hope, relief, a smile and the ability to focus on something other than their illness.
It was Gabby’s wish that every child at the hospital could have their very own Bag of Fun.
Initially starting out at as one-person operation out of her home, Amy Krause began her journey in September of 2019. Thanks to our generous community partners, Angels Among Us, Fat Brain Toys, The Salah Foundation, Charles E. Lakin Foundation, Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, MDRT Foundation, and Nebraska Medicine and the support of the Denver Chapter in getting up and running Amy was able to deliver 114 bags to children in Omaha over the course of the year. All funds raised in Nebraska – STAY IN NEBRASKA.
The pandemic presented some challenges and hiccups, but the need still exists, and Amy persevered in delivering Hope, Smiles and the Power of Play to isolated children and families.
