This Khloe Thompson, and she is 9 years old. What were you doing at that age? Playing outside, maybe digging up the back yard to look for bugs, or practicing the piano 30 minutes a day because mom made you. You may have asked why someone was standing in the middle of the road with a cup, or been excited to drop a few coins into a guitar case when someone was begging, but not many kids would have come up with this incredible idea…and turned it into a huge organization! On the way to school one day, she met a few homeless people with her mom and asked if there was anything she could do to help. Her mother talked to her about the things that the homeless needed, and what she thought she would need if she were living on the streets.
Khloe came up with a list and designed bags to put the supplies in. With the help of her grandmother, they sew personalized bags, and with the help of her family, she raises funds and creates toiletry kits that include just about everything.
The best part? They’re called “Kare Bags,” and her charity is called “Khloe Kares.” Adorable.
I believe that love is a blessing, and that’s why I love to do things for other people, and help people in need.”
She hopes to raise even more money to create even more bags! $10,000 to be exact. Using the funds, she wants to start an official charity and eventually branch out to give toys to children who live in group homes. Her dreams are big, and with enough perseverance and support, she will definitely reach them!
