Care Packages for the Homeless
By I Am Not The Babysitter! on December 10, 2012
Along with her two boys, this blogger put together a batch of care packages that include things like washcloths, water, snacks and toiletries, all the while teaching them (and reminding herself) to think about others less fortunate:
"Have you ever noticed we attempt to separate ourselves from people we consider 'tainted' or 'dirty?' There is something that makes us fearful (sometimes, understandably) of groups of people like the homeless. Unfortunately, it is widening the divide and hurting people on both sides. Something as easy as passing out a package from your car window may be a great first step in bringing our community (all of us) closer together."
