Homelessness has always been something that pulls at my heart. It's hard for me to see a homeless person and not feel deep compassion and sympathy for them. I believe each person living out on our streets has a story and has value. And I want them all to know that there are people who care about them and that they are not forgotten. While I cannot solve all the problems that cause and contribute to homelessness, I can offer care and support to those in need. And you can too! If you have also felt helpless in offering help to this community of people in need, now I can offer you a way to contribute to something that really does help our homeless friends feel seen, loved and cared for.
Through my shop, you can purchase a burlap backpack, filled with essentials to support homeless persons. 100% of the purchase price is used to create and fill the backpack with necessities. Backpacks will be given to charities I have partnered with for distribution to our local homeless population. If you purchase a backpack for the homeless, a personalized note of encouragement will be included with the backpack to the recipient in your name. In honor of your support, and with your permission, I will add your name to my Friends of the Homeless page on my website to recognize you and your compassion for this community.
