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

Such an amazing idea. Dollar store, here I come.

Did this with our youth group and unfortunately were told by a police officer we couldn’t give out any food to the homeless (such a bummer). So the bag with essentials is a great idea as well!!

21+ full-figured actresses playing 14/15/16 yr old characters rly fucked up my self-esteem and self-image when i was young and made me v insecure

quit casting adults as young characters esp in shows w/ young target audiences?? man it makes undeveloped lil girls feel inadequate that they don’t look like grown women when they’re baby teens

Como fan de los cómics, debo decir que estas son las mejores viñetas que he leído, y no tienen superhérores, sólo personas. Personas reales, como tú, como yo. Personas que ahora mismo están sufriendo de algún tipo de daño psicológico a causa del sexismo con el cual muchos hemos sido criados. Estas son sólo algunas imágenes que encontré traducidas aquí. Las originales se encuentran aquí, en el tumblr de Rasenth, un joven artista de 25 años que quiso expresar a través del dibujo lo que muchos pensamos. 

Tanta realidad.

“Pobresito, pobresito” si tanto les da pena por qué no los toman y se los llevan en vez de andar lloriqueando?

Maybe he’s trying to say ‘The number is so high we stopped counting a while ago and we just don’t care anymore. No one in the force can count that high anyway’

Hahaha hoooomygod. Yes the UCR is not as accurate as the National Crime Victimization Survey, I’ll give him that, but it’s what you have to use because the NCVS relies on self-reported data and no one can report if they’ve been shot by a cop because they’re usually DEAD. So, take the numbers from the UCR and double it, and that’s about an accurate answer.
