It was the spirit of giving back that inspired 18 student Bianca Soler to take action and develop “Fill a Bag, Fill a Heart” during her senior year at the Colegio Puertorriqueño de Niñas’. Her innovative initiative fed more than 100 impoverished persons for one week during July 2012.
Bianca’s plan consisted of giving away empty bags to her fellow students and then tasking them with amassing food and essentials in every one. In the end, all the bags were filled with enough food to last for one week! Once they were done collecting, Bianca and her friends took the bags to the local churches that would distribute them.
After spreading Good Karma with her “Fill a Bag, Fill a Heart” initiative, Bianca’s diligence spread to other local schools like Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola, Academia Maria Reina, Baldwin School and Saint John’s School. The final product (more than 300 bags!) were displayed and donated during an event at the “Mi Casa de Oración” church in the Miramar area of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The recipients of the supplies enjoyed breakfast and the atmosphere of care and attention where they got to share their life experiences with the volunteers.
