Purse Project in time for Christmas

I am off to drop off purses for the Purse Project I saw in the OTTAWA CITIZEN.  Today is the last day for drop-off for this specific purse project, but there are many out there.  Find one in your community to which you can donate.  It is a wonderful Christmastime idea.

Like most women, I have lots of purses hanging out in my closet, collecting dust. Many of them have barely been used.  The idea is to fill a gently-used purse with personal items for women living in shelters or on the streets.  There are so many things you can fill the purses with, use your imagination. Here are a few to start with:

  • feminine products
  • soaps
  • shampoo/conditioners
  • disposable razors
  • kleenex
  • lotion
  • make up
  • face and foot treatments

Find unused products in your home or purchase some to fill the purses with.  Many drug stores have a travel section with miniature sizes of the products listed above.  Gift cards are another great idea to add to the purses.

I have come up with six purses, all packed with goodies, ready for drop off here in Ottawa.  There are lots of drop-off locations listed in the article above, including many Shoppers Drug Marts and most Ottawa Police Stations.
