So I volunteered at a place called Bags of Love today in Eugene OR. The charity is based on such a simple concept - put bags together for kids in need- but the impact has to be profound. I packed bags with school supplies and could not help thinking what a difference having rulers, highlighters, pens, calculators, would make for kids who've lost their homes, are foster kids or just don't have any money. Now they can have what they need to study, and it was nice stuff too, so they don't need to be ashamed to open their school bag. Anyways, I was really happy to have been able to be a small part of a great work.
