The Purse Project Network
Fill a Purse with LOVE ...
and a Woman's Heart with HOPE
Good friends Gayla Matos & Jill MacKellar became involved in the Purse Project in 2018 through "Cards of Blessing". This creative initiative ensured that each purse donated to a woman in need included a note of encouragement hand-written in a handmade card. In January 2020 Gayla and Jill were given the opportunity to take over the leadership of The Purse Project.
The original intention of The Purse Project was to hold an annual collection of new or gently used purses filled with personal care items and a note of encouragement
These purses were then donated to various local organizations who would give them to the women they served at Christmas time.
As the new directors, Gayla & Jill have amended the name to The Purse Project Network to allow for more flexibility in our work with various organizations, to run different campaigns throughout the year while remaining true to the original spirit of The Purse Project. Our desire is to see new chapters launched across Ontario - and perhaps throughout Canada and even internationally to support organizations who work with those in need.
We are always looking for women to join with us in The Purse Project Network and there are numerous ways that you can get involved - such as:
- be a drop off location for donation campaigns
- be a Community Ambassador among your peers OR a Chapter Ambassador for a region
- donate filled purses
- help us during our campaigns with collecting, sorting, organizing and distributing purses
- be part of our year-round card-writing team
- host card-making parties with your friends
Ask us for details about these & other opportunities to join us in blessing women in need in your local community!
