A nine-year-old is giving out thousands of ‘blessing bags’ loaded with necessities for homeless people.
Jahkil Jackson went to feed the homeless with his aunt and saw how differently they lived. That made him want to do something, so he started nonprofit that makes “Blessing Bags” - which are filled with necessities we all need, like toothbrushes, socks, soap, and deodorant. He gives them out himself, meeting the homeless people who get them face-to-face.
He’s given away close to 2,000 bags and hopes to pass out 5,000 by the end of the year. Keep up the good work, we know you can do it!
