I just happened to be co-hosting a Pinterest party with no-blog Alicia, and decided to rope my friends into the shenanigans. Crafting plus giving? Yes please.
The Evite potluck list option made it really easy for each of us to sign up for items, and mid-projects, we took a break, spread out everything on the island and began putting together our bags.
During assembly we chatted about how much we take simple things for granted, like Chapstick or cough drops. It might not be much, but each item in the bags will hopefully bring some comfort and hope to those who need it most. Now each of us have bags full of basic daily necessities to pass out when given the opportunity.

It is not easy.
What is appropriate? What is meaningful?
Inspired by this song, she came up with Love knows your name...
To many the homeless are nameless.
To God they are not.
Let them not be nameless to us.
Share a bag, ask their name.
Let them know that there is love, and love does know their name.
Consider assembling Blessing Bags with your loved ones this Thanksgiving.
We have so much to be thankful for, and it means even more if we are able to share it.

I am thankful for you. So thankful for taking this challenge.
