Bags of Love - sleeping bag initiative logo


“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” ~ Philippians 2:4

With Bags of Love, we send you 20 sleeping bags for you to donate to your local homeless shelter or outreach organization. It’s that easy!

Why Bags of Love? Homelessness is a crisis of epidemic proportions in North America. We have all seen the rise of tent cities in urban centres including Washington, San Fransisco, Seattle and Toronto, and the sight of men and women sleeping unsheltered at night is unfortunately all too common. On any given night, there are roughly 600,000 people who are homeless in the U.S. and 35,000 in Canada. Bags of Love encourages Christadelphians in North America to make a connection with a local outreach group to help with the distribution of the donated sleeping bags. Beyond just the physical comfort a sleeping bag provides, there’s also an important emotional boost. Knowing that someone cares enough to provide a sleeping bag can lift their spirits and offer a sense of dignity.

“[The outreach organization] were as happy to get them as we were to be able to give them. As brethren in Christ we should “live to give” not only to each other, but to those who may still be strangers to Christ and the Gospel. The sleeping bags, a practical gift of love and the message they bring, will bring some comfort now; but, they may be a seed planted which will grow into a long-term relationship with God and his Son.
