Are blessing Bags a good idea?
Blessing Bags are great to keep on hand in your car, so if you are in a situation where you find someone in need, you have the bag right there to hand to them. This is a way to demonstrate and teach your kids the act of giving in the face of a need instead of just driving by or walking away without responding.
