When nine-year-old Khloe Thompson began noticing homeless people in her hometown of Irvine, California, she decided to help them. She started her own charity, called Khloe Kares, to provide homeless women with colorful shoulder bags which she sews with her grandmother and packs with personal items.

She fills the bags with soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, and other personal items and then delivers them personally to homeless women in the streets of her neighborhood. How do the homeless respond? According to Khloe, "Sometimes they give me hugs; sometimes they say 'God bless you' and then they say 'thank you.' Don't be so afraid of them. Their just normal persons, like you."
