Blessed to Bless

My mom is friends with this crazy lady named Dawn (crazy funny not crazy weird) and she has a blog called Dawn's Diversions well Dawn is on Facebook too and my mom saw a post about Blessed to Bless bags and she told me about it and I read this blog called Boyd's Crazy Mama which got the idea from Joy's Hope and it really inspired me to do more with my community besides the scarves, hats and sleeping mats, yes they are all nice and good but these bags are really GREAT!!!  So once I put the bags together I'm going to go out with my mom, dad and brother and we are going to pass them out to anyone that looks like they might need them plus we are making sandwiches to pass out too.  I'm also going to keep some in the car for when I see the people on the side of the road with the NEED HELP/WILL WORK FOR FOOD SIGNS. If you would like to help me then I'm looking for donations of the following:
My mom has been doing a lot of couponing and getting things for free or cheap too so that will help a lot!
Suggested Items:

1 gallon Ziploc bag

1 Juice box

Throat lozenges

Trial size Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen

hand sanitizer

hand or face lotion

packaged hand wipes

lip balm


Small selection of ready-to-eat protein rich food such as:

Cheese and crackers

Power bar

Tuna in a bag (no cans requiring an opener)

Plastic utensils and napkin

This is a list that Joy's Hope uses for their Blessed to Bless bags.

If you want to help put these together and go help us deliver them then contact me at or on Facebook under Punky Monkey Missions!  It really is a blessing to bless others, not only during the holidays but year round!
 Also remember 1 Timothy 4:12  Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
