Bag of hope

$600 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 8 people in 2 months
Created October 31, 2018
BAG OF HOPE strives to provide a backpack full of life’s little necessities to Edmonton’s homeless and less fortunate during December.

Many people are living on much less than necessary effected by poverty, hunger and homelessness.  Living on streets and in shelters, losing sight of their dreams.  It is a sad reality in our city.  Our families Christmas gift is to provide a warm and safe place serving a delicious turkey meal to the patrons at the Mosaic Center in Edmonton, AB. Then we are privileged to hand out around 150 filled backpacks. It is a heartwarming night filled with the true meaning of Christmas.  

WE NEED HELP:  The money raised will go toward buying warm ski type mitts and gloves which is our greatest need this year to put into the backpacks.

We will collect donations until November 30th as we deliver the backpacks on December 13th.   We give a little time, a little planning and a lot of hope.

Thank you to all who donate to Bag of Hope.  We appreciate your support in giving a meaningful gift this Christmas.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE WORLD? One Random act of kindness at a time!
Angela's story. I have been blessed to watch my children Cora and Owen open Christmas gifts and see the excitement on their face. I could not have imagined the look on my children's faces when they handed out a Bag of Hope backpack to those in need. I saw pure joy! The glow on their faces I wish I could capture in a photo. In that moment they were changing the world by giving kindness to someone needing a little hope for a better tomorrow. It is our privilege to provide a dinner and backpack to the patrons of the Mosaic Centre. Can you help us change the world with a little kindness?

FINAL COUNTDOWN!!! We are 3 days away from sorting our donations. We pack the backpacks on December 7th with all the donations of items and money is used to fill gaps in the donations.
