Ding Dong Ditch...A family in need

I heard that there was a family in need and I decided to help them using Simply 7.  They needed simple things like food, toilet paper, and basic stuff.  Also new school clothes.

I am glad I did it.

Me and my best friend and my sisters and parents gathered it all in a box got in the car.  Daddy drove the car real slow and quiet toward their place.  We tiptoed to the door and set the box down.  Everyone ran away, and I stayed there so I could ring the doorbell and run away myself.  I am glad I could do it.  And before we did it, I felt kind of nervous.  But after I ran away I was so excited I wished I could see them get it.

Then we went home and my best friend and I played.

A stranger...

Read my newspaper article and then emailed me.  I talked back and forth with him, then he told me how he did birthday parties and magic shows and stuff like that.  Then he offered to let me come over to his house with my daddy and he gave me a HUGE box 2 feet wide three feet long.  When I opened it I was SOOOO surprised!!  There were dolls, balls, bags, bouncy balls, dinasour eggs, cups and other stuff!!!  SO much stuff for homeless children!!!!  He offered to someohow partner up with me to throw a party for kids.  I want to choose one special family that needs a lot and throw them one.

Its when my little sisters class made a big blanket that I want to give that one special family.  I dont know who they are yet.  But I'm ready to do it!

I am very thankful for kind strangers like Mr. Williams
If you are Mr Jim Williams reading this, thank you SOOOOOOOO much!!!!

Once at Church...

Pastor Josh asked me to share with the church by interviewing me about Simply 7.  He showed them my new interview.  After Josh interviewed me and told the church that if I could do it they could do something like that.  It excited me that others might do nice things too.

Then when I got out of my kids church part I got a BIG surprise!!  The wonderful people of the church had donated a surprise offering of $515!!!    That is MORE money than I have EVER seen!!  I couldn't believe it!  I am so exicted to buy stuff for the homeless kids.  Everything they could need and want!!  They will have great birthday now!!

Then the next week.  I brought a note saying thank you to the church.  My mom was there, but I wasn't I was in kids church.  She said there was lots of ohh and ahhs.

 I want to keep helping the homeless!!

Thank you City Church!!
God Bless!

Did I tell you that...

The other day I got a letter in the mail for simply 7 from Ga (grandmas) best friend mrs guetzlof.  I was so excited to see a card made of orange paper with simply 7 written up and down and then cut out a newspaper article (ill tell you more later about that) of me and put the picture in the big space.  So she gave me one check for the homeless and another check for ICE CREAM FOR THE FAMILY!

I knew it would help the homeless verrrrrrry much.  So I was really sad, but she is going to send another ....she is so awesome.

Wrapping up the homeless presents

On my birthday my grandma gave me lots and lots of birthday bags for the homeless (100). (I also got money from people who are awesome, mrs. Emily, great grandpa, Virginia)

I used them for my Aprils 7 bags. I put shampoo, a toy, snack, toothbrush, socks, toothpaste and something like bracelets and candy in them.
I packed each one carefully putting love in it.
When I gave them to mrs Wolfe when I went to the shelter my mom decided she wanted to help too and gave me makeup kits to hand out to the women. I loved getting to know the homeless women. I love making these bags and it feels like I will never stop!

Stuff in it like hand sanitizer and stuffed animals and poncho balls and candy and even stuff for adults so I can make family packs. I am really really glad she helped!

Do you want to help?

I would LOVE if you wanted to help.  Either by sending donations, donation money, or by helping with your church, or family and giving it to a shelter by you.

Here is all you have to do to make a little kid who REALLY needs a smile happy!

Take a ziplock bag, fill one (or more) with

*Kids Shampoo
*Kids Toothpaste
*Kids toothbrush
*snack like trail mix with m&m's something kids love
*a small toy, like from the dollar store or stickers or something
*kids pair of socks

Then make a card with the simply seven mark...this one, you can just save it and print it on paper or shipping stickers

Put a small note in telling them you wish them a super happy birthday and they are loved.

The reason you need to make sure the things are kid, like the shampoo and toothpaste is because then they really will know they are special and this was made JUST for THEM.

Thats IT.  YOU WILL MAKE THEM SMILE. I promise you.  It is that easy to make sure they have a happy birthday!

THEN if you take pictures of you doing this and send them to my emmail

I will put them here and I will write all about the way you helped and show your pictures!  When someone sees that someone else did it too maybe EVEN MORE people will want to help.

I want every homeless boy and girl to know they are LOVED

My name is Alia and the night of my sisters birthday I decided that I just couldn't be happy because I knew there were children out there celebrating their birthday, but they weren't happy like us, because they didn't even have enough clothes to wear.

It was that night I told my mom how much it hurt my heart and I wanted EVERY child in the whole world to not feel that sadness.

She said to start with the kids around here.  So that is what I decided to do.   I made up a name for myself and everything! 

Simply 7

It is because I am 7 years old, and I want to make at least 7 Birthday Bags each month, and I want to tell 7 people and ask if they can do the same each month.  It's, Simply....7.   It is also Gods special number, so it seemed special to me.

After deciding this my moms friend told her they had a homeless Easter thing in the park a few weeks away.  I decided to raise 100 each of; child's toothpaste, child's toothbrush, child's shampoo, toy, snack and child's socks. 

I over reached my goal and was able to hand out about 80 bags to every child I could find there!  I even have a ton left over that I will make into birthday Bags and they are doing another homeless lunch in June, and I want each kid there to know that they are so special, to at least one person! 

I love knowing I make them smile!

If you want to help out please leave me a message or donate.  Or you can email me also at

I would LOVE to have you send pictures of you doing the same thing and I will share them here!  If you live close I can deliver them and if you live far away you can just tell me where you took them.

Love one Another
