Anyone can make a difference, no matter how old they are. Meet Khloe Thompson, the nine year old who sews creative toiletry bags for homeless women in Los Angeles.
Khloe lives in Southern California and sews together durable bags and stocks them with essential items for the homeless women in neighborhood. The bags, called “Kare Bags” are a part of her movement, Khloe Kares which is all about giving back to the community.
Khloe designs and sew the bags herself, along with her grandmother. The essentials in the bag include: deodorant, wipes, toothpaste, soap, washcloths, hand sanitizer, and feminine care products.
She then delivers the bags to the women with her mother. Her mother is actually the one who started the entire ordeal. On her way to school, Khloe would ask her mom what she could do to help, after passing by the same homeless people each day. Then that’s how the entire initiative of Khloe Kares came about. The purpose has been received extremely well.
Khloe told the women on The Real that when the women react they are “really happy”, even giving her hugs.
Some of Khloe’s classmates at school have even contributed to her cause, donating items to put in the bags.
Khloe’s next big project will be a Toy Drive. She says,
“I want to supply dolls and trucks to kids who live in group homes. These kids have not had the same advantages as I have had in life, and I really want to give back and brighten their day.”
Also, Khloe and her mother are working to make “Khloe Kares” a registered 501(c)3 charity organization to continue giving back to the community. “No dream is too small or too big,” Khloe writes on her website. She wants to inspire other children to be great and make their mark on this earth by helping others.
