Valentines Bags for the Homeless

In honor of Valentines Day we learned about sharing love with our community at the Brooklyn head quarters of “Repair the World”. We listened to a representative from Camba teach us about the homeless population in NYC. We talked about how it feels when you see someone who is homeless and you want to help and don’t know how to. We learned that sometimes the most powerful thing you can do is acknowledge someone, look at them, say hi, smile.

We read some books about love and helping our neighbors, and ways to share love and show love. Repair the World provided the supplies together we made Valentine gifts bags with snacks and essentials to take home with us. Next time we see a homeless person on the street or subway we can give them our bag and say hello.
