The other day I decided that I should use some of what I’m making selling items online should go to helping others. I came up with the idea of creating care packages for the homeless. Easy to do. Here in Portland, there are a number of homeless and every time I see someone, it breaks my heart. The first thing I knew I would need is sealable bags. It rains a ton here and this is critical in helping them keep things dry. I then added things like toilet paper, toothbrush and toothpaste, granola bars, peanuts, vienna sausages, comb and soap. With every bag that goes out, I also give a bottle of water. I keep these in my back seat and easily grabable from the driver’s seat. So easy to do and you can too.
