Ways to help

Helping help is easier than you think


Lets face it, we have all needed help at one point or another. Some more than others. So lets keep that in mind when we are helping others. Understanding the needs of others is key. Some people may only need a a few dollars to get whatever, others may need to be in touch with social services or other government programs. Those can be found here.

The main thing we need, is for you to tell as many as you can about this and to be ready to go out at the next event.

Here are several ideas for items to be handed out: Soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, water bottles, bug spray, hats, coats, gloves, hand warmers, deodorant, non-perishable, razors, feminine hygiene items, first-aid kits, sewing kits, deck of cards and other items for entertainment. Be creative. The possibilities are endless.

Things to remember

Spread the word

Get the community involved. Look for local organizations that can further assist in your area. Team up with friends to go out and help. Spread the idea online and on social media.

Make eye contact

Making eye contact shows that acknowledge that even people with out much, are still just people. Too often will the general population avert their eyes and ignore those in need.

Weather

Try to give out items that will aid with the current weather season. General items are important, but something to help keep warm in winter can also help to save a life.

Easy to carry

When handing out supplies and goods, keep in mind that most homeless spend alot of time on the move. Having backpacks, hand bags or other easy to carry items are a great idea.

Show Compassion

We are all human. Are we not supposed to love one another? This is supposed to be about helping humanity... or what's left of it.

Shelter

You can never go wrong with items such as umbrellas or rain coats. Tents or tarps and also be useful

These are only a few ideas one can do to help. One person can make a huge change. What will you do with your life?
