What is a Haiti Christmas bag?

A Christmas bag is a gallon sized zip-lock bag filled with necessities and treats for Haitian children. Each bag is carefully packed with items from our packing checklist. The items meet basic hygienic needs and provide the children with something they can call their own. Each child gets one bag.
