When this man told his foster care story, people listened… 39 million people.

Rob Scheer grew up in the foster care system, so he knows just how isolating of an experience it can be. He was shuffled from home to home, never knowing what was in store for him — and sometimes had only a garbage bag to hold his scant belongings.

Now, as a grown-up and husband, he wants to make sure other kids don’t have to suffer like he did.

He and his husband fostered — and then adopted — four children of their own. But they’re also helping other foster kids, by raising money for Comfort Cases, their foundation that provides backpacks with clothes, toys, toiletries and books for kids in the foster system.
