AWiLL Pack A Purse Pay it Forward

This is the 6th annual Pack a Purse, Pay It Forward campaign for AWiLL (Aspiring Women in Leadership and Legacy). The campaign focuses on collecting donations of gently used handbags. The purses are then filled with personal & hygiene items and donated to organizations serving vulnerable women in Edmonton. We are proud to say that over the last five years, through the generous support of our corporate sponsors and the community, we have packed and distributed more than 1900 purses!

With so many women struggling with the challenges of day-to-day living, overlaid with the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need is as great as ever.

Our goal this year is to collect and distribute 1000 purses at a cost of $15,000. Your support can and will truly make a difference. Financial donations can be made here or directly on our website   

This year’s campaign is scheduled to run from November 3- Dec 3, 2022.  
Should you wish to speak directly to the campaign organizers, please email [email redacted].

AWiLL exists to empower the inherent leadership within all who identify as women while growing a network that will have lasting positive impacts on our families and communities.  They create opportunities for people to gather, share, and learn together through monthly leadership events and lessons, as well as through collaboration with other organizations.
