This young activist sews colorful handbags and fills them with personal care products. Then, she delivers them to homeless women on the street.
Until recently, nine-year-old Khloe Thompson was unaware of the challenges homeless people face. But as soon as she learned, she was quick to do something to help.
The bags are sewn with the help of her grandmother. Then, they are filled with soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, and other personal care items that homeless people often go without.
Khloe delights in personally taking them to homeless women in the streets around her California neighborhood.
Khloe told PopSugar:
“Sometimes they give me hugs, sometimes they say ‘God bless you,’ and then they say ‘Thank you. Don’t be so afraid of them — they’re just a normal person like you.”
The activist hasn’t only helped dozens of homeless women, she’s inspired her own family to ‘be the change’ as her work in Irvine has opened their eyes to the necessity of helping others.
Her website states:
“No dream is too small or too big! I want to inspire other kids to be great and to make your mark on this earth. I want to challenge other kids to do something big . My page is to do community service, share my personal interest and educate other kids about things going on in the world.”
Like the nine-year-old who builds tiny houses for homeless individuals, this young activist is already making a big impact on the world.
