Jessica is a freelance writer for LittleThings. She’s a proud Pittsburgher that loves to drink tea and adopt cats in her spare time. When she's not hanging out with her kitties, Kiwi and Galdalf, she's most likely in a bridesmaid dress attending another wedding. She is a self-proclaimed Slytherin and would like to visit Harry Potter World as soon as possible!

Khloe Thompson is a 9-year-old girl from Southern California.

While most kids her age are surfing the internet or playing video games, she spends her time trying to make the world a better place, by using her sewing machine.

Every day, Thompson would walk to school with her mother and every day they would pass the same group of homeless people.

One day, Thompson asked her mother what she could do to help them. That’s when inspiration struck, and her charity, Khloe Kares, took shape.

Thompson could see that the homeless women she passed by each day were in desperate need of everyday necessities. With a little bit of fabric and a lot of love, Thompson began making durable bags, Kare Bags, filled with useful items to hand out to the homeless women in her community.

Little Khloe Thompson has some very big plans for her organization that she shared with LittleThings. Scroll down to find out what Thompson has planned for the future, and watch the video to learn even more about Khloe Kares.

Khloe Thompson isn’t your average 9-year-old girl. She has some very special skills and a very big heart.

“One of the things Khloe says all the time is ‘Don’t let your age stop you from what you really want to do,'” Thompson’s mother told LittleThings.

Each day, Thompson and her mother would pass by the same group of homeless people on her walk to school.

Thompson wondered if there was anything she could do for these women in need.

Thompson decided to create a charity with the help of her mom and grandma called Khloe Kares.

They began sewing durable bags together to fill with basic necessities like baby wipes, tampons, soap, and toothpaste.

Thompson calls the helpful handouts Kare Bags, and so far, they’re a huge hit!

The women who receive the kits are incredibly grateful and take them wherever they go.

“She has passed out over 200 bags. With the help of her grandma, they were able to get so many bags made.

“Khloe has inspired pretty much everyone around her. Her classmates have donated items and friends and family have donated,” said Thompson’s mom.

Her good deeds are scoring her serious points in the community and at school.

Thompson was even invited to talk about her organization on BET’s talk show The Real.

“They thought I was the class superstar,” Thompson told The Real in regards to her classmates’ reactions to Khloe Kares.

The caring 9-year-old doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. In fact, she has even bigger plans for her organization in the near future!

“Right now, we are planning a toy drive,” Thompson’s mom told LittleThings.

“So far, we have Taco Bell sponsoring food, Zappos.com providing shoes, and people from all over the community are donating toys.”

Thompson has created a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money to fund her ultimate dream of turning her organization into a registered 501(c)3 charity.

In addition to this goal, she wants to collect toys to supply kids living in group homes with something to “brighten their day.”

“Every little bit helps. She is very thankful for all the donations she’s received and she will continue to support her community. Someday, she hopes to have her Kare Bags make it all around the world,” said Thompson’s mom.

Khloe Thompson is truly one-of-a-kind and we wish her the best on reaching her goals.
