If you'd like to generate some good karma for the new decade, this is a great way to start. Kelly Wickham, aka Mocha Momma is a very funny lady and a really cool blogger with a truly generous soul. She's also an Assistant Principal at a high school.
In Kelly's words, here's the short version of what the drive is all about and how you can help. Read the longer version here.
Problem: our high school girls are only allowed to carry small purses to school (it’s a safety issue) and many girls have already purchased purses. Do I need to mention The Economy? Do I need to mention the poverty rate in my school?
Solution: have friends and family help donate small purses (women almost ALWAYS have more than one purse!), sell them for the bargain basement price of $5, and donate that money to the school for the students. My friends have been gracious enough to clean out their closets, but I know a lot more people find this an easy project in which to get involved.
Purses should be no larger than 8.5 x 11 so measuring with a piece of paper should be easy to use for measurement. They can be sent to me at:
P.O. Box 9465
Springfield, IL 62791
I'm just spreading the word. If even one person could send in a purse, or maybe a business could send a bunch, wouldn't that be great?
