On the outside, it may look like a simple suitcase, yet, the impact is far more profound for those in the foster care system.
"I was watching YouTube videos to be honest on camping and this particular guy was helping a local charity and it was Hope in a Suitcase," she said.
"I just thought it didn't seem like we had anything like that here so I looked into it."
From there, Ms Crosswell set about launching the Tasmania chapter of the charity to provide similar help to children in Tasmanian foster care.
"There's so many charities that sort of help children in that sort of way but a lot of it is money," she said.
"[With] this the children get a whole suitcase, we put together essential toys, clothing, pyjamas and things like that they can all keep for themselves."
Initially it was hard to find donationed goods, especially for teenage foster children, but social media came to the fore and rallied around Ms Crosswell's mission.
"It was hard in the beginning, getting the word out was the hardest part ... but I popped it on Launnie Chit Chat and there were all these people wanting to donate," she said.
"People will give like three big bags and just so much stuff it is crazy how much they are donating.
"The teens sort of get overlooked from maybe eight years old [people] don't tend to think straight away that there is older kids in the system."
There is hope that one day every Tasmania child in foster care will be able to get a suitcase, something that they can call their own during a difficult time.
The suitcases stay in Tasmania and Ms Crosswell is working with Launceston Child Services to deliver the suitcases, with plans to expand to Burnie and Devonport in the coming months.
"It's all been positive like that bags have been so well received and they just want more," she said.
"We're really hoping to get every child going into foster care a suitcase not just the odd one or two .. it's a boost of self esteem that they know they were worthy."
These suitcases are not just a simple case but a showcase of love and support for those in need.
