Today we distributed tons of stylish hand me downs atNPHY, and LOVED filling a huge bin with apples off of the tree right in our own backyard! We can never eat all of those apples and so many fall to the ground and go to waste every year. NOT THIS YEAR! Refreshing goodness for hungry youth today! We distributed about 100 lip balms, lots of toothbrushes and sun screen and some other foods, but it is NEVER ENOUGH! It amazes me how much we are able to collect and how busy we stay sorting, cleaning and distributing! But everytime I empty out the trunk, not only does the trunk get empty but my heart feels empty again! There are so many in need, and so little I can really do. We need more teens to join our movement. Please help me spread the word and get our website out there. So much to do and school is almost here too. I wish we could put shoes on every pair of feet. Put a backpack on every homeless and poor teenager trying to go to school! I cannot do it alone. www.teenshelpingteens.co please, add us to your social media sites and JOIN THE MOVEMENT!

I am so blessed, but every single day, even when I least expect it, I meet someone amazing. Someone so strong and brave. Someone still smiling, though they live a life that most of us could never imagine. I just came back from a crhristian camp. A camp I thought would have alot of teens that were just about like me, but even there I heard inspiring stories of survival, met amazing kids who have gone thru and are going through hell. Thier is so much need all around us. PLEASE HELP ME PRAY FOR These kids. .

We dropped of a bunch of urgently needed items today to The Shade Tree Shelter! Lots of stuff Siena collected for the younger homeless kids. Socks, underwear, even diapers. Sun screen and bath stuff. What a sad but great place that is. It is hard to explain how you can feel sad and inspired at the same time, but you can. An overheated pregnant girl sitting in the lobby, rubbing her tummy and cooling off. She was beautiful. She told me that the baby was kicking alot and she smiled! But she was so tired and her eyes so sad. Then some cops came in to talk to her. She is probably abused, I think. I am so inpsired that this place is here to take her in. To take in alot of moms and thier kids, babies to teens. But how sad also that they have to go here! Mixed emotions for sure. We will just keep helping and praying. It is all we can do.

Yesterday Ellie and I along with my little sis Siena, and Michael, all brought in our donations we had collected to restock the kitchen at the William Fry Center on Shirley Street. First of all, Thank you everyone who donated! Secondly, that kitchen was pretty bare, and the teens hanging out there were happy to get into the new stock! Felt good. The main thing I noticed was how most of the homeless teens there looked about like us, like a regular teen! Not like a street person. They do not want people to know they need help, they just want to fit in. So, when welooked into the closet of clothes donations and saw just a few old jeans and some old people looking tops, beat up shoes, etc. We felt really sad. Erica told us that these teens would rather have nothing then to be seen in these clothes. They want to look like other teens. So, NEW MISSION.... Clean out your closet. We all have so many nice things and get more all the time. We are lucky! Message me or call, whatever, get me or Siena or Ellie, your bags of COOL, STYLISH TEEN Clothes and shoes! NOW! Thank you:)
