A proud grandparent, alumna Judy Elias (1986 Government, 1991 Rhetoric) shared this special Valentine story with us and we wanted to pass it along. It will make your day !
Judy’s granddaugher, Abby, enlisted the help of her mom, Ashlee, to create “love sacks” for homeless people on Valentine’s Day. Abby explains the project in the note she wrote. (Notice how she puts a tiny little TM above “love sack” each time, letting everyone know its her trademarked idea!)
You can make your own love sack, if you want. Here is the list of items to put in a love sack – cost about $3.00 if purchased in quantity. Everything goes in a big re-sealable plastic bag.
- 1 bottle of water
- 1 StarKist Lunch to Go pack with tuna creackers, mayo, relish, spoon, napkin, and mint
- 1 Nut and Seed Bar
- 1 Container of applesausce
- 1 small heart cut out of cardstock paper
Somehow I think that Abby has the right idea for this February holiday! Don’t you?
