  2. 2. What is the Pink Purse Project? Pink Purse Project is a non profit organization designed to help women overcome their current negative circumstances and be empowered to fulfill their purpose for life. We want to do more than just put a purse in the hands of women. Each purse given is distributed with an intended purpose of being used to transform the life of a woman. Pink Purse Project
  3. 3. What is the Mission? The mission of the Pink Purse Project is to empower and encourage women to become assertive and confident by building their self esteem and giving them a brighter outlook on their life and future. Pink Purse Project
  4. 4. History of the Pink Purse This project started as a small community service project for the women’s ministry at the Church of Minneapolis in 2008. Although small it greatly impacted the lives of those that gave and those that received. As a call to the nation from President Obama to serve our communities the project was made public for anyone to join and participate in 2009. Pink Purse Project
  5. 5. Why a Purse? A purse is a statement. A purse is one accessory that reflects your own personality and uniqueness. Your purse while it complements you it can help change your mood and encourage you to be confident. Pink Purse Project
  6. 6. What can this project do? Pink Purse Project will help women overcome the fears of being strong and confident by addressing personal issues and tearing down walls of excuses and stereotypes. Strong, influential women will help other women become strong and influential by taking the time to exchange strengths for weaknesses and create opportunities for growth. Pink Purse Project
