Recap; Project Purse.
just in time for Valentine's Day.
We asked You to Gather your old and gently used purses (murses, or handbag type vessels) and "fill them with toiletries and personal essentials - similar to the stocking idea - warm gloves, hats, socks, tampons and pads,deoderant, toothbrush and paste, lipbalms, no prep snackies - bars and candies etc - feel free to get creative and add giftcards or other fun items that you think would be appreciated - add a personal note -
have some fun with it. (We also have two Elementary classes working on hand made Valentine's cards to go with the purses!)"
And the results were ASTOUNDING!
On Feb 13th (just in time for Valentine's Day) we hand delivered about 700 purses to women living and working on the streets and shelters in the DTES.
We are part of a pretty INSPIRING, AMAZING, COMPASSIONATE, GENEROUS and totally AWESOME community!
As Promised, we have drawn winners from some impressive gifts from local small businesses in North Burnaby!
