Stockpile Donation Ideas....Blessing Bags!

This is probably the BEST ever idea I've run across in a long time!!  I happened to run across this via Pinterest tonight...this is NOT my photo nor my idea....this came from a Pin linked to KWAV's (Kids With A Vision) website/blog.

These are called "Blessing Bags" and you keep them in your car for that moment you run upon a homeless person...there are so many REAL cases out there of folks in need...we all have stockpiles, this would be extremely easy to do!  These are very similar to the shoe boxes we do for Christmas for the homeless folks who visit the food kitchens.

Here's whatcha need....

Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
trail mix
granola bars
pack of gum
band aids
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
warm pair of gloves
a small card with a few kind words

Assemble all the items in the bags, and keep them in your it forward!
Thanks to KWAV's (Kids With a Vision) blog for posting such an AWESOME idea!
