Survival packs for the homeless

In a very recent letter to a new friend of mine here on reddit, I mentioned the fact I make survival packs for the homeless and figured I should show them here.

Here's a shot of one.

The premise is simple: to provide those who struggle with the means to survive at minimal cost to provide for as many as possible.

Here's how I do it.

Go to the dollar store and buy some of the following in bulk:

  • Tooth paste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Mouthwash
  • Bandages
  • Clorox wipes
  • Toilet paper
  • Bottled water
  • Shaving razors
  • Shaving cream
  • Deodorant
  • Chapsticks
  • Antiseptic packets
  • Gloves (in winter)
  • Survival blankets (in winter)
  • Notebook
  • Pens
  • Crackers/Crackers and cheese (or meat, whatever is available)
  • Granola Bars
  • Medical bandages
  • Shampoo
  • Backpacks
  • Sandwich baggies

When bought in bulk, these things become fairly inexpensive. One survival backpack costs between $10 and $15 ($25 in winter due to blanket and glove cost) to make. I build about 8 per month and drive around the city. When I see someone in need, I give them a backpack. I usually give them a couple of my cigarettes too, but I don't include that in the cost because I just share my own. It's worth so much more than a $10 bill.

If you see someone in need, please consider doing this. You'll be providing more than a single meal and the cost is negligible; You'll be providing them with many days of a better quality of life.

Wishing you all the best,

Inky
