When nine-year-old Khloe Thompson sat back and thought about all the essentials she uses every day, she made a realization that inspired her to take action and help homeless women in her community.

So much of the devastation that comes along with homelessness is the loss of dignity. Without access to the everyday essentials we tend to take for granted like hot showers and toothbrushes, people experiencing homelessness are forced to add another source of heartache to the list.

That’s why Thompson knew exactly what she needed to do when she took note of just how many homeless women she passed in the streets near her home in Southern California.

In that moment, Khloe Kares was born. The amazing girl was only eight years old when she ideated the initiative, proving that you’re never too young to make a difference.
