Back in November 2014, we ran a small campaign to raise money to purchase solar blankets for our local homeless community, and almost ended up going jail for trying to be cute and do a street drive… apparently our local police and zoning commission don’t communicate because we called ahead to make sure we were legal ANYWAY! We raised enough money to order 50 blankets, lower than our target, but a blessing is a blessing, and that’s exactly what it turned into.
The blankets were delivered to our house the same day the moving truck showed up to move us far away, so in a box they stayed until God said it was time. Well that time came the night of January 7th. While listening to the news in the background I heard the weather was supposed to reach a wind-chill of like 20 below, we had to get the blankets out there!
So in a frantic search for help I contacted a woman who had mentioned some time ago that her kids had started a project to help the homeless called “Backpacks of Hope”, and asked her how many backpacks they had made up at that moment… 50! It was like God said here’s your sign!
So a short Facebook conversation and 12 hours later we scooped up the boys and took them down to the mission to hand out their care packets and the solar blankets, I had no idea what we were getting into. Me, I’m afraid of everyone and everything, these boys were not only fearless but joyful in their mission. My husband and I were so moved by these kids we’ve decided to make them the official NMV2 Kellie’s Angels for the Homeless project!
Meet 10 year old Grayson and his little brother, 7 year old Cayden! Mom says that this is Grayson’s pet project but that his little brother loves being a part of it. The ride home was electric! The boys were so excited that they were finally able to see their mission come to life and to be able to help people. So we got to chatting and they loved doing this so much that they want to do it again… and we here at No More Victims 2 want to help them do just that! So I asked the boys for an interview and for mom’s permission to make this video so that I could share this amazing story, and our mission for them with you!
