Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?

You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.

How can you help?

Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.
This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.

If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:

Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
trail mix
granola bars
crackers
pack of gum
band aids
mouthwash
coins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
hand wipes
you could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift card

Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.

This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.

oh man i wanna do this

mee tooo. im bout to go to the dollar tree and rack up or a wholesale store.

All these reblogs make me so happy to see. So many amazing people on tumblr

random acts if kindness

please include a couple pairs of socks actually! Socks are among the most highly desired clothing item for homeless individuals


Instead of putting actual food items in the bag I highly, HIGHLY suggest you instead put gift cards to Starbucks, McDonalds, Dunkin’ Donuts, or any other fast food restaurant that sells coffee. Reason? 1. It’s indoors with seating, it allows the person to get out of the cold/heat for a bit while also getting something to eat or drink. 2. Coffee is always a nice hot beverage. 3. Food allergies, you don’t know if the homeless person can or can’t eat the granola or other food you’ve packed for them also, they can order good they like. I also recommend a gift card to a nearby grocery store, Target, Walmart, Kmart, etc. that way they can buy easy-to-carry good they like/are not allergic to.

Another reason to give restaurant gift cards? From my personal experience, fast food staff often know the homeless customers who come in, and treat them extra nicely. Where I worked, we often snuck extra food into their order, or gave them a free newspaper. I can’t speak for all fast food employees, but homeless folks were often some of the kindest customers that we got in, because they were just grateful for a warm place to sit for a while, and didn’t act like they were better than us who were working for minimum wage.

so when the doorbell rang we were super excited but our delivery person was this really confused old guy

he was like, “i’m sorry, but i don’t know what the heck a TARDIS is, so i drew the closest thing i could think of”

he drew us a tortoise

god bless this man

i gave him a twenty and told him to keep the change
