Blessing Bags

I just came across a great idea on Pinterest and I had to share it.
It's called Blessing Bags.

I've been meaning to do something like this for a long time  using hotel complimentary shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, etc.  This blog has a list of things that I would have never thought of.  Such as...



Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
trail mix
granola bars
crackers
pack of gum
band aids
mouthwash
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

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.


Putting these bags together would be a great thing to do with your kids, they can help and you can teach them compassion for others at the same time.

All my heart,
Salena

What a great idea! In the past I did something similar with just food items, juice, tracts and a coupon to a shelter for food and basic care.
