    Blessing bags to keep in the car when you pass homeless people. Something special you can do with the kids to teach them about caring for others. I love this! Both boys point out homeless people when we're driving… what a great idea

    I absolutely love this idea! Blessing Bags to keep in the car when you pass homeless people. Something special you can do with the kids to teach them about caring for others. BLESSING BAGS INGREDIENTS: Gallon size Ziplock bags chap stick packages of tissues toothbrush and toothpaste comb soap hotel size shampoos trail mix granola bars crackers pack of gum band aids mouthwash coins or predetermined dollar amount, say 5.00 (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 a packet rain poncho tampons (for women) The ideas could be endless! Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence. Not just for the holiday's but for all year round. :)
