Two Sisters Experience Delivering Beds With BFKSisters, Lexi and Kara, share their personal experiences after going on a delivery run on a Saturday morning with Beds For Kids
Lexi, age 12
Experiencing the Bed For Kids organization has been a once in a life time experience for me. It was very touching to my heart realizing how much we take for granted each and every day and how much hope the beds for kids charity is bringing into many families throughout Charlotte and the world. The look and the expression on their face when we brought in the beds is not even explainable. It was like we had just changed their life forever. To us a bed is nothing but to them a bed is a place to call home. When we gave them some toys and books they acted like they were miracles having something to do and something to read. It is like they had just been encouraged to keep on dreaming. These families are so thankful and show such gratitude towards you because you are helping them believe. I encourage you to experience this feeling and help make a difference for kids and families around the world.
Kara, age 14
This past Saturday I got the amazing experience of helping the Beds For Kid’s, Charlotte Furniture Bank organization deliver furniture to 3 families. Just to see the look on the families face when we brought in the furniture was absolutely priceless. My family and I brought along some extra toys and books to give to the children. There was one little boy that I specifically remember. When we brought in the books his eyes grew really big. He could have cared less about the cookies and toys we brought, he was young and all he wanted was for someone to read to him. The first thing he said to his mom was “read me a story.” The experience made me realize how much we take for granted. I had no idea that something as simple as a book or some toys could make such an impact. I think that this is something that everyone should experience young or old, it is truly eye opening and feels great to give to those in need. This is an experience that I will truly never forget; this organization is doing great things to help our city and I definitely look forward to volunteering many more times. I recommend getting involved with this awesome organization; it’s a great experience for any age! Thank you Beds for Kid’s for this unforgettable experience!!!
