Turn junk into funk with Megan Bayliss of The Junk Wave and raise money for the children on Baruni rubbish dump, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, at the same time.
This is a purse for a curse fundraising workshop. Do something to help others while saving the environment AND walk away with a drop-dead gorgeous piece of bling.
Make a bracelet; stay longer to turn it into a coin purse.
