DIY Tutorial - How to Pack Blessing Socks for the Homeless

One of the ways we like to teach our kids compassion is to pack blessing bags for our local homeless. This year, my good friend gave me this great idea to pack them in sock instead - brilliant, right?

  • Bar soap
  • Tooth paste
  • Toothbrush
  • Ear plugs
  • Lip balm
  • Floss
  • Bandages
Some other items we like to include are:

Although these donations are small, they are a very real and tangible way to help someone in need and a great way to teach our kids to be humble and have compassion for others.
