Purses For Nurses

Purses for Nurses

The mission of Purses for Nurses is to make a lasting improvement on global healthcare by funding volunteer trips that send nurses to the places they are needed most. Purses for Nurses was founded on the desire to turn \“throw-away\” items into something powerful as well as the belief that big change starts small. Each donated handbag carries the potential to change lives and influence global improvements to healthcare. By re-selling donated purses they are able to pay for the trips of volunteer nurses in full to impoverished countries around the world.

donateNYC Partner Fact: : Since inception in 2014, Purses for Nurses has collected close to 1,000 purses.
