Basic Kindness Bag Program
We create care packages for people living without shelter or experiencing hunger.
We bring the care packages to local concerts, events, and businesses.
When people are leaving they can take a bag with them so they have something to share when they encounter someone asking for help, experiening hunger, or living without shelter.
Kids Craft Kits
In response to the pandemic Basic Kindness is proving care packages for kids sheltering in place. We are creating care packages with literature, activity books, and crafts to keep children's minds engaged and occupied during this unprecedented time.
Contact us to learn how you can help support the Kids Kits.
Do you work to spread awareness about food and housing security? Is your organization working to provide support to people experiencing food and housing insecurity? Contact us and be part of our next collaborative meeting.
Help us Help Others
Basic Kindness is purchasing masks from local artists. We are selling the masks at Earth and State in Media, PA. You can buy a mask or headband for yourself or you can donate the mask or headband to a local health care provider. Your purchase will support the fabric artist, local small business, food basket packages for local families, and Kids Kits.

Nevis Summer Academy
In partnership with Values Into Action, Basic Kindness is planning a summer learning academy in Nevis, West Indies. Students in grade k-6 will be invited to practice literacy skills and engage in summer camp activities in an inclusive classroom. Teachers will co-teach to learn best practices for inclusion instruction and assessment.
Nevis is a special place to Basic Kindness. When we host or operate programs in Nevis we will hold separate fundraisers. All donations from the website are used for projects in the Philadelphia region unless otherwise noted.
