Last year I initiated a project making homeless care packages to give out to people on the streets in Connecticut. I raised almost $1500, made 48 backpacks, and supported 2 charities in addition to handing bags out. I received a lot of positive feedback and participation, so I’m ecstatic that we are BACK for Year 2!!
The 2022 Project starts on November 1st, so I’m coming to you a little early. Last year by the end of the project, I realized that there was no way to view all the videos from the project in one place easily. I ended up making a Youtube video that compiled them all, but this year I made a Facebook page!
Starting Monday, I will post one video every day that I made last year. This will not only allow you to see every video from 2021’s project in one place, but will also get the ball rolling for our November start date. The videos will (hopefully) serve as a refresher for those who participated last year, give some insight and encourage people to participate this year, and be a central hub for all things HCPP (Homeless Care Package Project)!
It is no exaggeration when I say that I’ve been thinking about this project all year. Even to this day, I still get notifications daily of people liking, commenting, and sharing my videos from last year. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this was not a one-and-done project, and that my hopes aren’t too high for this year. My goal is still $1500 since we didn’t quite reach it last time, but I certainly hope we surpass that.
I have some exciting things in the works for this year that I cannot wait to share with you, so stay tuned by subscribing here to this blog and following our Facebook page! I’ll also be posting on my Instagram stories and Tiktok if you want to cover all bases 😉
