Who we are & what we do

A Note from the Founder
Most of us have never really been without necessary hygiene products. We never had to worry about when and where we’d take our next shower, if we have toothpaste and a toothbrush or deodorant. We simply get up, conduct our daily hygiene process and go about our lives. Yet there are a 100 million people on the planet who don’t have the hygiene amenities we take for granted due to homelessness and poverty.
That’s a huge number. In fact, The National Alliance to End Homelessness states that there are 564,708 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the US, without access to hygiene products. Items we can’t imagine to go without for over 24 hours.
Care More is here to introduce you to a few of those people, to show you that they are real and need our help. A lot of the members of the homeless community are overlooked and forgotten about. At times seen as the invisible people of society.
We invite you to put yourself in their shoes and work to help us deliver small forms of hope through care packages and conversation. We know it’s not the grandest solution to put an end to homelessness, yet it’s a small step in the right direction to show them that we care and most importantly want to help.
We believe that every act of caring counts. Small deeds can often go unacknowledged and unrewarded but we hope to show the world that every ounce of kindness and generosity can help others become more compassionate – and in turn, help make our world a better place.
With Love, Mercedes
