Care Packages for the Homeless/Needy

Organized by: Michelle of Hampton Roads

Campaign Target:  The fundraising campaign is specifically targeted to assist the homeless/needy population with care packages needed for day-to-day survival.  The campaign will allow me to provide the following: bus passes to seek shelter and/or to secure employment, wash cloths, soap, toothbrushes, & Walmart Gift Cards to purchase food, feminine hygiene & other items.

The Story:  One evening while  at BJ's for gas, a polite young man walked over & asked to wash my windows for a few dollars.  As my son continued pumping the gas, I reached into my purse and gave the man every dollar that I had & told him "God Bless". A few minutes passed & it had gotten dark outside. I noticed that the man walked over & sat on the curb with a bag of belongings. He was homeless. Instantly, my heart was broken and I began to cry.  I didn't know the man nor did I know his story.  I just wondered why some seem to have it all, yet some live in despair.  To myself I wondered, "How did he get chosen?  Why him?  Why not me?  I haven't always done everything right.  I'm not any better than anyone else."     

On this day my heart was really touched in a different way & I vowed to make a difference. I decided to begin keeping care packages readily available in my vehicle. In addition, I also decided to take the time to communicate with those in need versus simply handing them a few dollars. It's important for them to know that they are human and that someone in the world truly cares.  Everyone has a story.
