Organize a “Go Confidently!” Handbag Collection
A project of the Confidence Coalition, the “Go Confidently” Handbag Collection is a handbag drive to benefit women and teen girls in need. After all, a new handbag can help any woman walk more confidently. Think about how you walk a little taller with a new bag on your shoulder- it’s confidence you can carry!
A simple act on your part may be just the thing to give another woman a little boost of confidence to realize her dreams. And it’s as easy as 1-2-3!
- Rally women in your organization or community to donate new and gently-used handbags. Ask them to bring bags to a meeting or provide drop-off boxes at businesses around town.
- Write encouraging notes that include the Confidence Coalition website address (www.confidencecoalition.org) and include a note in each bag.
- Choose a local organization that serves underprivileged teens and/or women. Ideas include a women’s shelter, Dress For Success, local Girl Scout council, etc. And deliver the handbags to the organization you choose.
Don’t forget to let us know if you hold a collection so we can keep track of all the great things people are doing. Together we will make a difference!
