California 9-Year-Old Makes Toiletry Kits for the Homeless
Khloe Thompson has launched a GoFundMe to turn her bedroom operation into a 501(c)3 charity
Khloe Thompson has more on her mind than the average 9-year-old.
One day, walking to school with her mom, she saw a homeless person and asked her mom what she could do for them.
Her solution? “Khloe Kares,” a charity she runs that makes and distributes “Kare Bags,” which are hand-sewn bags filled with various essential toiletries and distributed to homeless women.
Khloe’s grandmother helps her sew the bags – which contain toothpaste, deodorant, wipes, soap, hand sanitizers and the like – and then she and her mother distribute them. Khloe’s goals don’t end there, though. She’s set up a GoFundMe with the goal of raising $10,000 to help her set up Khloe Kares as a 501(c)3 charity and pursue her next goal, which is to distribute toys to children living in group homes.
