Sarah and Lisa

A care package is a great way to show a little love to a friend or family member. My little sister,
Lisa (who is now 18) left for college to go to Ohio State University. I was not able to help
her move in so I thought it would be a nice gesture to send her a surprise care package. It was so fun thinking
of all the items I could send her. Do I make it funny with gag gift to get her through the horrid late
night cram sessions of college or do I choose something more practical for her first semester? I thought back to when I was in
school and I decided to go with practical (for the 1st package) and it included all of the necessities like:

• Clothing- 5-6 tops

• Pens & Highlighters

• Stationary (for sending letters to big Sis)

• Lip balm

• Journal or fun notebook

• Small Vera Bradley backpack

• Photo of Us

Care Package for Sister in College

I will continue to send her packages throughout her years in college– some funny, some
practical, and some with just going out money just because I want to show Lisa my encouragement and support.
College is a lot of fun, but can be very stressful at times. My advice to you college kids…
remember to always have a balance schedule (work hard, play hard) and to try to do your very best.

Think about someone you care about and send them some love today! It will make them and you
very happy.
