Helping Ninja Mission:
Help The Homeless

Why did you join Helping Ninjas and why did you decide to help the homeless?
I didn’t want to have a life where I never thought about other people.
We have more than others, so we should give stuff to other people who have less than we do.What happened? My mom saw a facebook post from Rebecca on her page “Michele’s Mission of Love” about needing supplies to deliver to the homeless.
We previously have helped Rebecca, by meeting her at the Maker space in the Fisher’s library. This is where we helped her make sleeping mats woven out of plarn (plastic yarn) for the homeless. We also helped tie the ends of small blankets that were given to the senior center.
We have also been helping another women named Evon, who made a facebook page named “Breakfast Buddies”. She goes downtown in Indianapolis to feed and give clothes to the homeless every Sunday.
We heard about the people sitting on the street with no home and felt sorry for them and wanted to help. We decided to make two donations so we could help pass things along to both ladies. My mom went to the store and bought supplies to make 24 kits that included a bottle of toothpaste, a toothbrush, toothbrush case, and a bar of soap.
She also sewed 24 face masks to go into the kits, plus more for the second donation. We bought socks, hats and gloves to help keep them warm. We made 40+ scarves by buying thick fuzzy fleece fabric, cutting it into strips and then tying knots on the ends.
We went through our food to see what food and candy we could donate. We made kits that we put into plastic ziplock bags and sorted items into trash bags. It took about 1 week to make the scarves and get everything assembled.
It made me feel good to help them.
