6th grader wants foster kids to ‘Carry with Confidence’ with donated luggage


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Montgomery Lanier is only 11 years old, however she is making big plans to help foster kids in the Cape Fear.  She has founded Carry with Confidence, a charity to collect luggage for kids who need it.

Lanier said she was inspired by another little girl who “had to leave her house with all her stuff in trash bags.”  It was that chance meeting which got her thinking of ways to help.  Now she has a goal to collect 100 pieces of new or gently used luggage before Christmas.
