Healthy Tote for Homeless
Let me be honest. I used to sit in traffic, stressed, ready to get home and someone would come to my window asking for money while sitting at a stop light. All I wanted was to get out of traffic and could care less about what that person needed.
Fast forward to my daughter turning 7. This girl has a heart of gold and one day she saw someone asking for money. As we talked, her eyes were opened to the fact that some people do not have homes. Her 7 year old mind was blown. She could not comprehend that when she went to bed at night, there were people less fortunate that didn't have a bed or a home.
As weeks and months and even a year later passed, this girl's heart is still concerned for those less fortunate. Over the past year I have watched her concerns and prayed that God would give me a heart like hers. And God answers prayers.
He has placed helping others in this situation in our family's hearts.
“If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or profit, but fear your God, that your brother may live beside you." Leviticus 25:35-36
We have prayed for a way for us to help. For every Healthy Tote you purchase, we will provide a tote or bag and necessities to someone in need. Our tote will contain things such as socks, lip balm, snacks, water, peanut butter crackers, and jerky. In December, we plan to prepare the bags to distribute to those in need.
We are so excited about this and can't wait to give back.
