The Florida Sewing Ladies
Kathy is part of a sewing group that gets together to sew pillowcases for for children in the hospital. Charity being part of their souls they immediately embraced gathering purses for Purse-Impressions!
Carol's Open House
Carol invited friends to an open house at her Colorado home for her first annual Purse-Impressions drive. She was overwhelmed with donations, 136 purses to be exact ...and more keep coming!
Sharing a note from our contact Crossroads, Inc. . " I am so excited for what you all are doing for these women and I am so grateful for you all. The holidays are always hard here because not all of them are in contact with their family or if they are, they are missing being with them for the holidays. Not only that, but you are correct that they come in with little to nothing. I think this is a great way to brighten up the holidays for them and to help meet some of their needs! And the purses will be awesome for when they start job searching!!"
Changing lives one purse at a time!
"I’ve had a handbag habit all my life. Still use both the first basket bag my Nan passed on to me and my mother’s first designer purse. So, when Kathi Black put out the word on Purse-Impressions, a grass roots effort to honour suddenly lost #CourtneyElizabethMichaels by giving her wish, packed purses or bags to women and men leaving rehab, it spoke to me.
Courtney’s friends, family and friends-of-friends, have collected, stuffed and donated almost 400 fresh-start bags, a testament to Courtney’s spirit and her mom Patricia Brusha's drive to create a real legacy for her beloved daughter.
Deep grief to real good. Yet what Purse-Impressions stands for is far more than that. In even the saddest and hardest times, make a start. We can all help build a tangible contribution and shine a light. Community can come from anywhere and everywhere. And that, collectively, the smallest kindnesses and actual actions, doing something, make the biggest difference. "
"Thank you again for all your hard work, dedication, and effort in making this happen on behalf of Renascent. You are an angel to so many woman. You are adding a purse full of hope, faith, and strength so that each of the woman graduating know they are not alone as they walk out of a different person. They will carry with them the tools they need to hopefully move forward in their recovery and an extra special gift to remind them to keeping moving forward, and take things 5 minutes at a time. "
