Meet Khloe Thompson, a 9-year-old girl with a big heart and generous spirit. Khloe serves her Los Angeles community by giving Kare Bags to those who are less fortunate. She sews the bags herself, along with some help from her grandmother, and fills them with supplies like toothpaste and soap. Khloe’s vision is to “make the world a better place, by showing ALL of [her] neighbors that they are loved and cared for, no matter what their situation is.”
Watch her inspiring video here and then read her Clever Belle interview below. Khloe wants other kids to know that they can make a difference in their communities too!
Please tell us about what inspired you to start making Khloe Kare bags.
I would notice the same homeless lady on my way to school. And I felt bad for her. I wanted to do something to help her. So my family and I came up with the Kare bags.
Who is/are your role model(s) and what do you admire about them the most?
One of my role models is Malala. She's a women's activist. She started being an activist at a young age. And she fought for girls rights in education. So I love her!!! And my grandma!!! She's just awesome. She taught me how to sew and she's the reason why we have the Kare bags now.
What are your future plans for Khloe Kares?
I plan to have my own community center. The center will be a place where homeless people can live and also work. It will also have places to get the skills you need, a daycare and a place to get back on your feet.
When you are not busy making bags, what do you like to do in your free time? What are your other passions?
I love reading, playing outside, minecraft, sewing, hanging out with my family. I'm a normal kid, I just have a passion to help people.
What advice or words of encouragement would you give to other Clever Belles who want to make a difference in their community but don’t know where to start?
Don't let your age stop you from what you want to do!!
