Maybe you have participated in Pink Saturday previously. Maybe you still do. It is always fun to see who is sharing their anything goes pinks! So visit Pink Saturday.
Get in the pink! Do something random and nice.
I love Kathy Van Zeeland. Her handbags are delightful. I own this one.  She lines the inside of her handbags with fabric graced with tiny beehives. I love these pretty in pink purses. I found mine at the ARC Thrift store for $7.99. She handbags are pricey otherwise around $60-100.
I do love this hot pink Kathy Van Zeeland purse too but if you have any laying around instead of donating them to a thrift store, do this. Fill them with basic supplies for homeless women. Soap, toothbrush. toothpaste, wet wipes, feminine hygiene products. Stuff it with a few gift cards too. Denver gets mighty cold in the winter months so having a pocket full of gift cards for coffee and food and a place to sit and enjoy it away from the cold is a simple kindness. Next time you donate purses, remind yourself to do this instead.
My hubby has Saturday mail once a month. Last month we were entering his building which has a Starbucks on one side. We saw a homeless man putting cream and sugar in his coffee. Starbucks has had a bad image, calling the police on young black men waiting for a friend and needing the use the restroom.  The CEO spouting out inappropriate things about conservative Americans etc.  Apparently they have a new policy. If you have a gift card or cash and you are homeless, you are entitled to get out of the cold and enjoy a few minutes of warmth and hot coffee or tea.  Instead of celebrities spewing hate  about our president and again, the American conservatives,  Take a real stand. Donate to those less fortunate trying to get back up on their feet. Help others right in your own cities and stop the H A T E !  Hate is what is truly wrecking us as a nation. Hate is worse than anything .
God loves each one of us. But it is up to us to love each other and celebrate our creator.

I am one kitty who loves pink. If there is something pink laying around I’ll lay on it. I too wish there was lots less hate.

Pink is my favorite color. I love all things pink.

I will not give a dime to Starbucks. There are a lot of places I don't shop anymore.

Have a fabulous day and weekend, honey. Big hug. ♥

Great job. You said it like it is. Been watching all the snow that is covering your area. I do not like cold weather.

Hi Anne - I love meeting the lovely ladies of the world through Pink Saturday too! I'm adjusting my tiara as we chat (that quote made me smile) as did the suggestion to fill preloved handbags with goodies with supplies for homeless people. You have a kind heart Anne and you tell it as it is re hate, and the world loves you for this. Have a lovely weekend

I love your idea of filling purses with items and gift cards to be given to the homeless. I shall try to pass that idea on. As for Starbucks, I don't do business with them. I don't even like their coffee. As for their new policy -- anyone with cash or a gift card can go in and have a hot cup of coffee, so what's so good about their new policy? Not all homeless have money or gift cards. Giving out a few free hot cups of coffee certainly wouldn't bankrupt the company.

Don't get me started on them. Anne, you have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
