When I started Powerful Purpose, a big part of this next chapter in my life and career, I wanted to give back on a higher level. I decided to help other women by sitting on boards of directors, development committees, running workshops, or being an active member of our church and youth ministry group. It fills my heart to be able to give in different ways.
Powerful Purpose is more than a coaching company. I wanted it to provide a way to give back to women also, so I started the annual gently used purse drive. Something that was driven explicitly by my community of women. Allowing others to give easily and fill their hearts too. FILL THE PURSE WITH PURPOSE continues to help women by donating to several non-profits listed below. In the video, you will hear the details of why I started this drive and how you can be involved. The video was recorded at the Annual Meeting of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association.
Each year around the end of October, I start spreading the word that the drive will start. Women from all over the United States step up and donate beautiful, gently used purses filled with items they chose with love and joy. They send or drop off these purses to me, where my dream team of women sorts through the purses, getting them ready for delivery. It has been a fantastic effort! The organizations that Powerful Purpose donates to look forward to the purses each year for their clients.
“GENTLY Used Purse” filled with purposeful items:
Scarves, gloves, hand warmers, small notepads, pens, jewelry, gift cards, lip balm, lotions, tissues, books, gamebooks, nail polish, hard candy, bibles, spiritual books, wallets, hand sanitizer, masks, socks, and whatever you would find in your purse.
Finish it off with a motivational note from you to the recipient — with words of encouragement. Please leave them anonymous.
She is more precious than rubies. Proverbs 31:10
