The idea isn't new, women have been filling bags and totes with necessary items then giving them away to fellow women in need for centuries. What's new is a dedicated effort by cc Studios and participating sponsors to make My PURSE PROJECT the largest community giving program in the US.
cc Studios and My PURSE PROJECT will launch a national campaign, August, 2016 where we and our amazing supporters will work together to bring women in our community together to donate their unused (and in good condition) handbags to be filled with toiletries, haircare and skincare items, cosmetics, feminine products and pretty undies to be given to residents of local homeless shelters throughout the United States.
The giving campaign will be sparked by an active and engaging social media effort, PR push from both Los Angeles and New York and a collective spirit of sharing and caring from all of the remarkable women (and men) we know what to be a part of this special project.
In the weeks to follow cc Studios will make regular announcements regarding the set up phases and ongoing initiatives that will be a part of what builds My PURSE PROJECT to be ready for public release in August '16; Phase One is selecting and confirming our local shelter recipients and working to secure local and national sponsors and project partners.
UPDATES: my Purse Project has selected Chrysalis Shelter as our Arizona charitable giving receipient. We will be delivering filled bags and totes to the at-need women residing and being serviced by this worthwhile, domestic violence shelter.
