"One Kit" for Our Homesless Friends

It's that time of year again everyone:

Street projects would like to FIRST thank all of you who contributed to our Winter Socks Drive either by donating funds or Socks. We would not have had 3 successful drives if it was not for you! Please keep in mind that we will continue to collect Socks throughout the year. Our homeless friends, just like us, always need Socks.

Last year we had a few successful Hygiene Product Bag Drives "One Kit" which consists of large bags filled with hygiene products; toothbrushes, wash cloths, tooth pastes, soap, floss, deodorant, mini shampoo, mini conditioner, brushes / combs, tissue etc. Well this year we are at it again.

We all know what it feels like to feel yucky after a workout or a long day out at work. Well, like our special friends, they too have that same feeling. Only their not as fortunate to have a clean bathroom or a shower of their "own" to wash off in, so they do so in public bathrooms (gas stations, subway stations, coffee shops etc) Let's come together and lift the burdens ya'll. One step at a time.

find it in your hearts to take a trip over to Dollerama and purchase $10 worth of hygiene products, all of which cost $1 each. I can arrange a pick up location to collect the products from you. We would like to hit the Streets with "ONE Kit" within the next few weeks.

A BIG Thank you to Kevin D for ALL the Fly Sneakers. Our "friends" are going to feel so fly in those Kicks.

Are you with me in being a #WORLDCHANGER ?

I don't spend time trying to figure out why these "friends" of mine are not out working and choose to live on the streets instead. NO! Look, that could have been me or YOU! The only difference is, I / you never lost hope. We were strong enough to rise. But let's face it, they may be homeless but some of us are living in darkness in other ways! So let's NOT judge!

We are ALL sons and daughters of the Most High God!

Love Lizzy
