I’ve got this idea – CLOSED

by practicewithdanielle

It’s one of those days where I really need a break from the news.

I read Skimm every morning, listen to NPR and watch VICE news at night. Late night shows on the weekend and the occasional Fox News clip. You know, for balance.

But this isn’t one of those emails. I don’t want to bitch about the state of our world/government/president.

I’m TIRED of consuming a bunch of sad shit fed to me on a non-stop media schedule.

I want to do something active, that feels good.

I’ve got this idea.
It’s not even my idea.
It’s not even a BIG idea.
But it’s something.
And I think you’ll want to join in too.

I’m going to take purses and totes I’m not using anymore, fill them with toiletries and snacks and hand them out to homeless women.

I saw this on the internet about a month ago and it stuck with me.

I FUCKING LOVE IT. 

It’s small but impactful, it’s active and something I can do TODAY. Not when I’m a millionaire and can afford to open a women’s shelter.

You want in? 

Even $5 will pay for a few items.

This money will go towards toiletries and snacks. Some ideas:

  • Toothbrush/toothpaste/floss

  • Lotion

  • Tampons/pads

  • Kleenex

  • Deodorant

  • Scarves/hats/gloves

  • Snacks

  • What else?!

To be clear I am not a non-profit 501(c)(3) and I have no idea what this means for your taxes. Just tryna do something here folks.

I’ve got 3 purses ready to be filled. If you live in Boulder and you have purses to donate – holler.

If you want in, Venmo me whatever you want to donate with the memo “purses”.
