This Christmas, we are excited to support the New Orleans Family Justice Center by building Brooke’s Kindness Bags for the children of domestic violence survivors in hopes that it will help them and their families celebrate the holiday season.

As a domestic violence survivor, our director, Melissa, knows firsthand the impact Christmas can have on survivors and their children.

"Helping children is our number one priority with the Brooke Erin Posey Foundation. The Foundation has been a great way for me to give back and to help Brooke's favorite people—children—all in one." 

For our #GivingTuesday Fundraiser this year, “Christmas Smiles", we are raising funds to fill 42 Brooke’s Kindness Bags for the children of NOFJC, ages 7-17.

A donation as little as $10 can provide: a gift card to a fast-food restaurant or store, art set, personal hygiene items, socks, games, scarf, gloves or other like items to be included in our bags.

If you choose to sponsor a Brooke’s Kindness Bag for $50, the name of your choosing will be included in the bag’s Christmas card as well as a card mailed to you.

Thank you and lets send "Christmas Smiles" to the children of New Orleans Family Justice Center this year!

If you like to shop and would like to gift items for our bags, we have put an Amazon Wish List together as well as a link to Five Below for the Stitch(from Lilo & Stitch) stuffed animals we like to include in the bags.

Want to host a Giving Party? Want to volunteer to help build bags?

What is a Giving Party? It's a great way to help us build Brooke's Kindness Bags and who doesn't love a party? You choose a date, time & location, and invite your friends and family. We will provide you with the invite (digital) and a list of suggested items for the bags. We will coordinate with the host for pick-up of items.

Want to volunteer to build Brooke's Kindness Bags? This is a great opportunity to receive service hours for a high school student. We will need 4-6 volunteers for about 2-3 hours. The closer to the deadline of our fundraiser, December 9, 2022, we will release the day and time to build bags. Send us your information and we will be in contact as soon as we get the date confirmed.

Email us at and please put Giving Party or Volunteer in the subject line.

All donation deadlines are Friday, December 9, 2022.
