People. Purse.

At any one time in Allen County, there are 1,400 children on waiting lists for scholarships to provide quality childcare programs. Quality childcare is important for ALL children. It might sound cliche, but they are our future. Check out this video about why we need to position them for success.

You can help! Let’s put our community’s “small town” self to good use. It may be six-degrees of separation in other areas, but it’s only 2 or 3 here in northeast Indiana. (Am I right, or am I right?) This fall, the event “Power of the Purse” will be held and purses will be auctioned off with proceeds supporting the effort to get quality childcare for our children.

Who do you know? Who do you know that knows someone else? Will you start asking, tweeting, posting on Facebook until we reach THE purse. You know the one(s) I’m talking about. Oprah. Katie. Hillary. Taylor. The First Lady.

Can you help? All purses must be donated (there is no money to pay for these purses) and received no later than August 15th. If you can help, get going! And, leave a comment here so we can track the progress.

Let’s put the power in the purse!
