Now Playing Tracks








Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?
You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.
How can you help?
Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.

This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.

If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:
Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
trail mix
granola bars
pack of gum
band aids
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.
This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.

oh man i wanna do this

mee tooo. im bout to go to the dollar tree and rack up or a wholesale store.

All these reblogs make me so happy to see. So many amazing people on tumblr

random acts if kindness

please include a couple pairs of socks actually! Socks are among the most highly desired clothing item for homeless individuals

Holiday ideas! Also space blankets/rain ponchos would b good

I might do this as part of my senior project. When my mom was a senior she interviewed homeless people about how they got there, what they would do different, etc. My best friend wants to do the same thing so I just might pair up with her and do this.

Why “After” Shouldn’t Be Turned Into a Movie

Warning: There is some pretty heavy content in regards to domestic abuse as well as descriptions of specific instances of abuse. If that’s something that may trigger you, I advise you not to watch.

Apologies for the coughing, I’m getting over a cold.

Here is a link to the petition mentioned in the video.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to send me an ask.

If you haven’t read after shut your mouth. I didn’t watch the rest of the video cuz she said she didn’t read it. If you didn’t read it you don’t really know what it’s about you’re judging by what you hear not what you witness first hand so stop

The other day SMG was on the radio and after words, the host guy was like “you know, I trust my girl I know she would never cheat on me. I don’t need to write a song about being protective over her cuz she’s going to cheat on me” and he just twisted the whole meaning of the song and I was like wtf no!

It would be hypocritical for me to say she [Taylor] couldn’t do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience. I can’t say I’d have dated someone less famous to avoid it. At least she’s a great songwriter!

[Generally] You like people for who they are, so I couldn’t say I want to date someone less famous because of the hassle. You like who you like. I think relationships are hard enough, so I think you have to completely ignore everything from outside. When you’re in the opening stages of a relationship as it is, you’re still under the pressure of getting to know everything about a person. If you have a lot of people from outside telling you what it is and they don’t even know you, telling you what your relationship is, that’s weird. So I think you sort of have to block it out and just have the relationship rather than think - we’re having this relationship play out on magazine covers.

Low key confirmed they dated 😒 2 years later and I’m still disgusted but oh well like he said he can’t listen to us cuz it’s weird, which honestly it is. That’s like me being in a relationship and people I don’t even know are tweeting about me and the guy and saying shit like umm okay?

We make Tumblr themes
