Greater than ourselves

I am very excited about this campaign called the Power of a Purse!  This campaign is all about giving to mothers and letting them know that we do see the value in what they do! 

Every Mother's Day, Mothers & More has a campaign to raise awareness that the work we do, caring for our families has social and economic value.

Power of a Purse works by asking women to donate new or gently used purses as well as items to fill the purses that we can give to mothers in need. A new purse can do a lot to boost a woman's confidence, and can be her "home away from home" – a place to keep her most needed items each day. A purse also symbolizes economic power – the ability to buy things and to provide for yourself and your children. Through this campaign, we will learn about the financial issues that impact mothers.

If you have purses or are able to provide services to the women of Haven House located in Denver please let me know.  We are hoping to give these women a day of pampering... hair, nails, massages and even take their pictures!

Our event will take place on Sunday, April 25th at the Haven House.

Below is an interview that was done by the founder of this campaign last year... I hope that it sparks some excitement for you and gets you motivated to help collect purses for our event!
