PENSACOLA, Fla. and MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- 3-1-1 Travel Bag, Inc., a developer of practical carry-on solutions for the modern traveler, announced today its non-monetary donation of 1,000 Clear Bag System toiletry cases for families traveling to and from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

"We recognize the frustration and stress many of the children and families at St. Jude face having to travel long distances to get to the hospital. Our goal in donating the Clear Bag System bags is to help alleviate the hassle and burden associated with such travel frustrations and make their journey that much easier," said Linda Padgett-Stinson, CEO and founder of 3-1-1 Travel Bag, Inc.

The Clear Bag System is an all-in-one travel companion confirmed compliant for use in airport security checkpoints across the US and Canada by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Transport Canada. The bag, created as a stylish, yet practical alternative to carrying liquids and gels in zip-top bags, will be made available immediately to St. Jude for patient use.

Stinson, who lived in Germantown, TN for eight years, holds St. Jude's mission close to her after losing her grandmother to cancer and watching her father battle cancer and now live cancer free for five years. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital holds a special place in Stinson's heart from her days spent in the area, living alongside her dear friend and late community activist George Garner of local George Garner Travel.

"We strongly support the staff and clinicians at St. Jude and felt this was an important contribution to show our continued support for all they do for the community and the patients and families who visit there," added Stinson. "We are excited St. Jude accepted our donation and are pleased that the Clear Bag System bags will be used by the children and families being treated there."

Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. No family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay.
