Driving past our city underpass, seeing small dirty piles of belongings below the bridge, a tattered sheet and scraps of material, evidence that someone claimed this cold, impersonal cement slab as their home.
It broke my heart and I found myself wanting to do what I could to make their life better.
And so became "Hope for Homeless", founded under UniqueThrows4Less.
We've all been down on our luck, one time in our life. Someone came along to extend a helping hand, an encouraging word, a tender embrace. We may never receive the opportunity to thank them or return their gracious gift of love and mercy shown in our troubling time.
So, let's take this moment to pay it forward.
Extend a global hug to the hurting, lonely and disadvantaged souls.
Partner with Hope for Homeless to change the world for the better, one life at a time. Your donation of $35 provides a thick, plush and warm faux mink blanket to one homeless individual. These blankets will provide extreme warmth against the winter elements and a comfortable flooring throughout the season.
100% of donated proceeds go directly to the Hope for Homeless fund. For about $1.00/day you can change a life-now that is something to be proud of!

Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement.
Your kind words go a long way.
Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence
