A couple weeks ago I had an idea to do a fundraiser...
... I was looking for some places to donate purses and bags to share with you all as a part of my decluttering challenge and I remembered that @theperiodpurse once accepted purses and bags as donations and then they would fill them with menstrual products to support those in marginalized communities.
Turns out they don't anymore (but it's ok because they're still doing their great work, just more efficiently).
So in came this simple idea that got me REALLY excited:
Collect purses, bags, backpacks, suitcases, wallets, etc, and do a sale, with every dollar going right to The Period Purse, so they can keep helping the people that need it!
Honestly, I thought I'd get 10-20 bags at the most.
This round up we collected 82 bags!!! You guys really know how to support!
Now that we have the bags, let's get them sold. Prices listed are based on the condition, size, brand, etc. If you think it's too high, send me an email with your best offer and if the piece doesn't sell by August 20, 2021, I'll look at the offers and let you know.
The response has been so amazing! Thank you to everyone that has donated already!
With all the messaged I've received from people who couldn't get their bags to me in time, I'll be doing another round-up. Stay tuned for more details.
Thank you for making my dreams come true!
