Today my RAOK was delivering blessing bags to the local homeless shelter. If you're on Pinterest you may have seen this image pinned and repinned:

I picked up the supplies over the weekend hitting up the Dollar General to get more bang for the buck. I bagged each one and added a note with a scripture (printed from Sweet Blessings). Instead of handing them out on the street I went to our homeless shelter, Panama City Rescue Mission, and gave the box to the coordinator who then handed them out. I was still there so I was able to see how excited everyone was to get a bag. It felt so good. I wasn't able to make as many bags as I would like so I will definitely make a part two to this.
In case you were wondering what went into the bags:
toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, soap, chapstick, bandaids, deodorant, granola bars, raisins, applesauce, pack of gum, and a bottle of water in a gallon size ziplock
I also wanted to share this Kindness 101 video with you in hopes that it makes you giggle with happiness like I did watching it. :-D
Have a beautiful day!
