Bags of Hope & Love <3

Anything you think might make a teen or preteen feel more at home in a strange place

I hope this inspires you to reach out to your community. There are sooooo many ways to help those in need. Donate to your local food bank, foster care system, homeless shelter, women’s shelter. There are so many in need. Reach out to your couponing friends and see if they will part with some of their stockpile! LOL
Spread HOPE and LOVE!!! This world needs them SOOOO much!! BE the change YOU want to see!!!!


  1. This is an awesome idea! I work for a 501C3 Non profit organization and I just finished making baby blankets and now I think that I am going to start with the bags and fill them for our homeless friends, addicts, and the people that everyone wants to walk around and pretend arent there and are in dire need of these things. I am about Honoring people, no matter what situation they are in.
    Thank you so much for this great idea. It has inspired me!!!

    1. YAY!!!!!! That is AWESOME!!!!!!
      You are so right!! HONOR the people. don't over look them! Don't judge them!!! We have no idea what may have brought them to the place they are now, we just need to help them as much as we can!!!
      GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!

  2. I think this is a beautiful idea. I volunteer for a non-profit organization that reaches out to communities in need. I live in a house that belongs to the organization and we assist the community with their needs. I just finished a project making blankets for babies and now I think this is going to be my next adventure. People dont realize, or they chose to ignore, that there are so many people out there in need of the things we take for granted. We deal with the homeless, prostitutes, the desolates and I am all about honoring them. This would be a wonderful way to honor them. A beautiful bag full of items that they are in need of. Thank you so much for sharing this and thanks for doing what you do!

    1. You are very welcome! Thank YOU for inspiring me as well!!!!
