And… after much anticipation, it is finally here! The newly expanded, and revised iCARE4Homeless Kit v2.0. What’s the difference between version 1.0 and 2.0? In addition to toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap/bodywash, lotion, and a facial towel, the following items are now included:
(1) Inspirational Motivational Card, containing a breath-taking image of the Grand Canyon or a cute puppy, an inspirational quote, and a list of important contact information/phone numbers for helping the homeless find shelter homes & hospitals, places for obtaining food, and access to health-care
(2) A Kid-size Snack, such as Grahams Crackers & Oreos Cookies
(3) Chapstick – To prevent dry lips, especially in the dry & cold seasons
(4) A T-Shirt – The clothes the homeless wear often become ragged and unkempt in several days. One T-Shirt can help them tremendously, especially during San Diego’s chilly nights.
Although this means more expense towards assembling my kit, I think these extra items will really help the homeless children & families.
A snack to munch on, chapstick for maintaining the condition of the lips due to extremely dry weather, and a T-Shirt to keep warm! And, last but not least, an inspirational card to cheer up the homeless during tough times like this!
