Lois’ Stuffed Purses

A New Purpose for Your Purse

When this activity came to our attention, it was something that Lois Spatz had posted on facebook. The originator of this idea is Turner & Pooch Co., an online shop for economic & social justice clothing.

Sharing these posts is exactly what’s needed to better society overall, to make the world a little kinder. And it may not seem much of a contribution to like a post enough to share someone’s good idea. But in fact it’s huge.

You can make someone’s day

Of course by posting these inspirations, it will prompt others to act. Sharing such posts will also serve as an education for a different group of people, even if they won’t participate. And it will cause yet others to share the original post as well, so it reaches a broader audience.

The facebook post, just as Lois had shared it. Lois Spatz is an accomplished and well recognized photographer in the Western Communities of Palm Beach County.

 

An example of what can go inside a purse: a guest soap, tooth brush, hand lotion, sun screen, pocket mirror, lip balm, sleeping mask etc.

Gone Viral!

What’s really nice about the power of the internet, is that all positive ideas get multiplied exponentially. And many people may find a particular idea attractive enough to want to pitch in, even when somewhere, somebody else is already doing it. There is no competition when doing good.

Give it a try – you may really enjoy helping this way.

As easy as 1-2-3 for you:
Here’s how to do it:
1
  • Find a purse that you will not use, and fill it with necessities.
2
  • Take a photo before you donate your purse, then take it to the recipient. If at all possible, take a picture when you hand it over, or after they received it. Download and print the FIRST HUMAN AWARD for you to keep, see link below.

COVID-19 ALTERNATIVE ENTRY:

Include only unopened goods in their original packaging. Do not give out your purse directly, if possible. If you do, wear your face covering, sanitize your hands and include a personal hand sanitizer in the purse that you give away. Better yet: bring your items to a homeless charity.

3
  • Upload your entry and photos. See the LINKS IN PINK below.

Important, please read:

Before you hand someone a purse, please make sure that it is actually a welcome gift. Some people who find themselves in a difficult situation may not want a handout, or they may feel embarrassed.

Do not approach people randomly unless you’re sure they don’t mind being approached. Consider their privacy. If you’re not sure, donate your purses to a shelter or an organization that helps the homeless and is familiar with their needs.

Only use fresh products as stuffers that are clean and unused. Keep in mind that full size products are not always practical. Use your good judgment.
