In the season where most kids are thinking about what they will be getting as gifts, Khloe Thompson is giving to others. At the young age of 10, Khloe has already dedicated the last two years to serving her community by distributing her homemade “kare bags” filled with essential toiletries to homeless women as part of her Khloe Kares Project. Since she began this project, her mission has been to make the world a better place by showing all of her neighbors, especially those in difficult situations, that they are loved. This simple but powerful endeavor has inspired many around her and has earned her recognition as a GoFundme Kid Hero. However, Khloe believes the most valuable reward she can receive is a warm hug from the women who she helps.
Together with the help of her grandmother, Khloe designs, sews, and fills the care bags with basics such as toothpaste, deodorant, feminine products and brushes. With the help of her mother, Khloe then hand delivers each bag to homeless women throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. This small gesture makes a big difference to each women because it gives them something to call their own and help them get back on their feet. Since she began, Khloe has delivered more than a thousand bags and dedicated more than 200 hours to this project.
Now that Khloe Kares is a registered 501(c)3 charity, Khloe’s work is only just beginning. Khloe is raising money for a community center, getting more kids involved, launching a kids leadership workshop, and plans on returning to Ghana to install another water pump and bathroom facilities. In this season of giving Khloe’s compassion is inspiring us all to make a difference. What can you do?
