Tatum Eyecare Teams Up With Purse Impressions!
Purse-Impressions transforms the tragedy and heartbreak of losing a child from addiction into inspiration and compassion for others who are overcoming addiction in their own lives. Tatum Eyecare is proud to team up with Purse-Impressions to help provide women with feminine lifestyle, care and hygiene products in handbags of their own. Or, in the words of our founder Patricia when discussing her daughter Courtney:
“She (Courtney) didn’t like that women who graduated from Rehab often left there with their personal items in a plastic bag. She wanted better for them. She wanted those women to hold their heads high, to be proud of their amazing accomplishment and to leave with something that showed their value.”
Purse-Impressions honors Courtney’s life. She passed away shortly after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Cirrhosis of the liver at only 28 years old. Patricia and her team of “Courtney’s Angels” volunteer their time and resources to gifting as many handbags as possible to women leaving rehabilitation centers in multiple states, including Arizona.
How Does Purse-Impressions Help?
The Purse-Impressions Mission is to give women graduating from treatment centers a beautiful reward for their hard work, and a way to go out into the world with dignity and some important personal things of their own. By gifting them with a beautiful purse in which they can put their most personal belongings, Purse-Impressions gives these women a way to continue making progress on journeys they have already started. These purses are also filled with items like:
-Nail Files and Tweezers
-Hair Brushes and Clips
-Shampoo and Deodorant
-Feminine Hygiene Products
-Wallets, Sunglasses, Scarves and Much More!
