We are so excited to be adding Brooke’s Kindness Bags to our #BrookesActsofKindness movement! After Hurricane Laura hit Lake Charles, Louisiana, we started discussing ways we could help children who experienced a challenging time.
All of us here at the Brooke Erin Posey Foundation were affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Ernest and Melissa’s children, Justin, Megan, Brooke and Lauryn, were young at the time. They felt a little lost and disoriented with all that was going on. Losing their homes, moving to another state, and being away from family and friends was plenty for them to process. There were so many amazing people that helped them during this time. Now it's their turn to give back.
On September 16, 2020, Hurricane Sally made her way through the Gulf Coast and left behind some damage. On Friday, September 25, 2020, the first 25 Brooke’s Kindness Bags were delivered to the city distribution center for the children of Orange Beach, Alabama. We added some individually wrapped snacks and put everything in Halloween trick or trick bags.
A basic Brooke’s Kindness Bag consists of a cotton tote with a pencil case, 24 pack of crayons, pencils, bookmarks, erasers, pencil sharper, 12 pack of color pencils, pair of scissors, a pair of head phones, glue stick, coloring books, journal, tissue, tooth brush and tooth paste, a toy, a couple of activity items, a craft item and a fun pen. The average cost for a basic bag is $25.00.
