Friendship bag

Friendship bag

a pop-top can of fruit or fruit cocktail

a pop-top can of Vienna sausage

a small can of juice

a package of cheese and crackers, or peanut butter and crackers

a napkin and plastic fork

a moist towelette

one all-day bus pass

change for a local phone call

a card with community contact phone numbers (crisis clinic, food bank, salvation army)

a coupon for a free shower at the local YMCA

Create and carry a few of these bags in your car and the next time you come to a stop light with a homeless person holding a sign................ you will have something wonderful to share and bring hope to those in need without having to be concerned that you will give them money that could be used for something you do not want to support.

Bridge and Beyond Project

Click on the picture for more information about this group and to the questions they ask below...

just say yes to one.

Can you can knit, or crochet and make something to donate?

Can you can blog about this to spread the word?

Can you can place our badge on your blog or website to spread the news?

Can you can tell your family, your friends, your neighbors, and your co-workers about it?

Does someone in your circle knit, crochet, have yarn they no longer use, blog, have a website?

Can you donate socks? Which are always a needed item...nothing worse than cold wet feet.

Can you can collect little soaps, lotions, shampoo etc? Start saving all those samples at hotels when you travel (either for business or pleasure).

Can you put out a box to collect things at work?

Can you place a notice in your school's newsletter, your church's bulletin?

Do you have an old, no longer being used backpack you could fill with warm clothing, or instant food?
