Acts Of Kindness: Bags of Warmth

What is an act of kindness? It is doing a random act of kindness for someone. everyone always needs something to lift there spirits. May it be someone opening the door for someone who has too many items in there hands, or it can be sharing a lunch with someone who has none. These acts are what keeps us human, and everyone deserves feel like that.

This is my project of kindness, I have been struggling with it for several years, and today I have decided to no longer struggle with it and just do it. I am not well off in any means, I am struggling in the poor sector myself. But I always try to do something nice for someone, because its the right thing to do for me. It fills my heart to see someone happy, even if its just holding the door for someone.

What are Bags of Warmth? Well basically they are tote bags that have zippers, filled with items to help keep one warm during the colder months. Hats, Gloves, Scarves, Socks, personal care items extra..  Many bags are handmade while others are donated by others.

When colder months come upon us many are left without warmth or places to go get out of the warmth. I have always tried to do what I can to help keep people warm. Now I am asking for help. I would like to make scarves and hats for those who need them. Many are kids who go to school who cant afford warm clothing, Runaway teens who have no where to go, or those who have been displaced by some unforeseen force. I know many have felt the sting of the cold. We all can do something just one thing to help ease this, we all deserve to feel human.

I am also asking that everyone start doing this for there own communities, not just the one I live in, but your neighbors as well. My  only hope out of this is that others are inspired to do acts of kindness for others. There is no greater reward then seeing someone so over joyed in getting what they need.
