About the Organization
The organization started in March 2021 when Founder and CEO Maria Castro wanted to lift women up during Women’s History Month, and then it quickly turned into a movement through social media. In less than six months, more than 5,000 purses have been gifted to women living in emergency shelter situations facing domestic violence and homelessness.
