My wife, Rebecca, and I are starting to collect items to put packages together for the local homeless here in Northeast Kansas. Our idea, as of now, is to speak with folks, SEE THEM, get to know them and what they need and give them some things that will maybe make their time a little easier. We not only want to include some basics but some magic as well, because people thrive best with the practical and the beauty. I will also be offering Reiki to them if they desire. While we sometimes feel overwhelmed with the state of humanity, we both realized we can do something, even if it’s making someone’s day a little less alone. To see people and love on them in this way feels to me to be a very big thing.
We posted about our efforts on social media and immediately raised $145 the first day, and several people are also mailing supplies to us. We are SO VERY GRATEFUL and excited for the generosity of others so far. We have some other dreams to provide various forms of sanctuary to many people in various stages of their journey, but the Share the Magic kits feel like a good start.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO HELP:
items we are collecting include, but are not limited to
- reusable water bottles
- small notebooks
- small lotions
- wet wipes
I will also be including a small spray bottle of Universe Juice and will be thinking of other lovely magical offerings that might make them feel good and loved. We are taking donations here at our home for anyone local who wishes to drop something by. Please message me privately for the address.
Another option is monetary donations toward more supplies and/or gas money to do the footwork, which you can do below.
