Blessing Bags


I saw this idea on Pinterest one day….an addicting habit and I want to make this happen in our community.  I know this can be done for nearly FREE using coupons, but I need to enlist your help.  Where can we get these out?  Do you think this is a good idea?  What should be put in them?  Should we sell them?

I’m going to repost/quote the blog that had this idea on it originally…

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.
Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
crackers
pack of gum
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.
So who’s got some ideas??
