So far, the Care Bears have planned out the contents of their care bags, and are working on ways to purchase or receive donations of the care bag items themselves. The Care Bear members have put up collection bins, are in the process of asking Target about a sponsorship, are planning on holding a night at one of the local restaurants in their community where a percentage of the bill goes to their project. They have accomplished getting their local elementary schools involved and with students making a cheerful pieces of artwork with something inspiring written on, and cards of hope, sure to brighten the day of those who receive a care bags from the Care Bears group. I know one thing for sure, the Care Bears have brightened my day, just by seeing their caring works in action. Keep up the great work, Care Bears, and perhaps in the future we may hear of you joining the Comfort Socks family of sock collectors.

Comfort Socks and the Care Bears Connect
Say hello to our newest friends, the Care Bears. The Care Bears is a group of five 7th grade students from San Diego, CA. As part of their humanities school project, these fine young people have chosen to help the homeless in Downtown San Diego by providing them with care packages. Back in Feb, the group contacted Comfort Socks with some questions – and after a few email exchanges – it became clear to me that the heart of these young people will be a great comfort to those they touch. And it is the desire of Comfort Socks to show the world what some effort with good-spirited heart can do. We are grateful to know the Care Bears and appreciate that they have let us share their story with our Comfort Socks family.
