Me and my Honey bear took the time to make some care packs to pass out around the homeless shelter. What a lot of people don’t know is that every homeless person isn’t allowed in a homeless shelter, and also just because people donate to the shelters on a daily basis, they rarely make it to the hands of the ones who need it most. This particular shelter takes in donations, sorts them and distributes vouchers that allows you to get 2 articles of clothing and 1 hygienic product for example. Anytime I bring ANYTHING, I pass it out MYSELF.
I ask anyone I come in contact with if they have any clothes, shoes, or products they no longer need, use, or wear. These packs were not possible without a few of my friends, clients, and also my personal investment of course. My friend brought peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and bottled waters, and we hit the streets passing these babies out. With the help of our lovely helper/security guard we were able to reach the people that don’t have the opportunity to get those “vouchers”. It honestly isn’t enough. Every time I go, I wish I would’ve brought more. I am thankful to have the opportunity to help at the capacity I am currently able to do, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have hopes and dreams to be able to do this on a bigger level. If you ever have anything you no longer need, use, or want, DON’T take it to goodwill. DON’T throw it away. Gather it together and give it out to those who need it. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself while someone else thanks you too.
