As part of the national Mothers & More Power of a Purse campaign, I’ll be leading the April 19 meeting of our local chapter here in Pasadena on 6 Big Money Mistakes Mothers Make AND our local chapter will be accepting donations of new and gently used purses to donate to the Elizabeth House which provides “shelter, hope and support to homeless pregnant women and their children, addressing the physical, emotional, spiritual, and economic needs in a nurturing atmosphere.”
The Mothers & More Power of a Purse campaign is “designed to draw attention to mothers’ economic issues through the act of collecting new or gently used purses for mothers in need. Purses symbolize a woman’s economic power, something we wish for all women, especially mothers in need. More than an accessory, a purse and its contents reflect the many roles and responsibilities mothers shoulder every day.”
In addition to the chapter meeting and the purse drive, I’ll be blogging all month about financial and economic issues facing mothers and families. We hope you’ll consider checking your closet or picking up an extra purse on your next shopping trip and bringing one or more to the April 19th meeting. If you can’t come but still want to make a purse donation, send it with a friend or please contact me via Facebook, Twitter (@KristinMaschka) or by emailing kristin (at) remodelingmotherhood (dot) com.
