Tennessee Kids Belong believes everyone can do something to change the story of foster care, and the creative community is a powerhouse of ingenuity and inspiration.
The national creative community has recently drawn attention to foster care with the addition of a character in foster care on Sesame Street, a series of news articles in The Kansas City Star, and the foster care plot line in This Is Us.
Creatives of every variety--from songwriters to movie producers, athletes to poets--have partnered with TKB to highlight foster care and support children and families impacted by foster care. Here are just a few examples!
MLB player Caleb Joseph joined TKB at an I Belong Project™ video shoot for the day.
