Lend a Helping Hand

I recently ran across this idea on Pinterest and decided to try it out for myself. I hope this inspires a few of you to do the same! I stopped into Target today on my lunch break and spent a little time in the "travel-sized" section. I grabbed some essentials and a few snacks and put together a couple of these bags for myself and my parents. The idea behind these is to carry a few in your car and when you pass by someone who looks like they could use a little help, pass the goods along!

Here is an example of what I put in my bags. I just realized, a bottle of water would be a good addition! 

Everything here was under $1. The cost could add up once you make a few bags, so just grab what you can afford when you can afford it. That little extra expense can make a big difference in someone's day.


  1. I love this idea! Just had to comment and definitely on my to do list.

  2. Thank you for commenting! I'm so glad you like it and I hope you'll pass on the idea!
