    Once, Coyote returned a lost purse to a woman at the Saturday Market. She was delighted of course, but a little confused, “My purse had a $100 dollar bill in it when I lost it, ” she explained, “But now there are ten $10 dollar bills!” Coyote beamed and said, “I did that! I returned a lady’s purse to her last Winter and she was SO glad to get it back, she said she was gonna give me a reward, but she didn’t have any change, so I got nothing. This time, I came prepared!”

    My friend designs hats and purses and has a piece in this year’s show! I would love to be there to cheer her on (and to see if Coyote makes a special guest appearance!) ;)

    I have been a member of the “Girls and their Allies” and “Feminist Mothers” caucuses of the National Women’s Studies Association for four years, and I’ve never been able to afford any of their conferences. I’d love to take my 13-year old to this event and show our support in person.

    Thanks to PAM for hosting such a meaningful charity.

    I would love to go to see what this “Power of the Purse” program is about which seems fabulous to promote some of the most important virtues to young women to help them really make something of themselves.
    I have to admit that I do have a personal interest in this benefit and that is that I have a little girl who is turning six next week so this is a program that she can participate in in a couple more years.
    Thanks for considering me!

  21. Kristin March 7, 2013 at 6:17 pm #

    What a great opportunity to support such an incredible organization and an amazing cause. This event has been on my list for a few year and I would love to show my support.
    Hopefully, I will be the lucky one.
    Thank you for the chance!

  22. Stacy March 7, 2013 at 6:39 pm #

    It would be a privilege to attend Power of the Purse Fundraiser. As a former Girl Scout I love to support programs that encourage girls to be smart, strong, and independent.

    I work for another charity and can’t afford tickets, but could justify spending money on an auction for such a good cause. I’d like to go and meet like minded people in town. Pick me and I’ll bring a big buyer with me!!

  34. Dominick March 7, 2013 at 10:39 pm #

    My friend, Chrissy, has been sick all week and it would mean a lot to her to get to go to a nice event this week. :-)

  35. Nicole March 7, 2013 at 11:53 pm #

    I’m currently volunteering as a facilitator for one of the after school groups for middle school girls. Although I’d love to attend this event and support the fantastic women who support the girls of Portland, the ticket cost has been prohibitive. Please help me to get there so that I contirubte to a night of empowerment and excitement!!

  36. Scott March 8, 2013 at 5:49 am #

    Wolud like to go and support them.

  37. Laurel March 8, 2013 at 7:56 am #
