As of right now I have handed out 558 bags to homeless and poor people.
On Saturday my step Dad, Brian, and I went to the Emmanuel Dining Room and handed out 56 more Brae’s Brown Bags. We had 8 children’s bags with books to hand out and it ended up being just enough this time. Some of the bags also had scarves and gloves for the adults.
2014 will hold big things for Brae’s Brown Bags. One thing is that it will now be 3B: Brae’s Brown Bags Foundation. We have our very own federal ID number now and soon will be an official 501(3)c which I don’t really know what that means but my Mom has been working very hard on that part of the project. The form she sent into the IRS was very long and it ended up costing a lot of money. But hopefully this will help us to get more funding and sponsors so we can really get 3B to become even better.
So to all of you, a very Happy New Year! Remember sometimes all you need to do to help someone in need is to lend them a hand and a smile.
