Change Purses for Change

I am very excited to be be participating in my first Carried Away Bag Team (CABT) charity event. This fundraiser "Change Purses for Change" CABT team members participating will design a change purse, wallet or pouch suitable for holding money. We will be donating the proceeds from the change purse sales to Women for Women International.

Since it’s creation, Women for Women International has empowered over 153,000 women survivors of war to move toward economic self-sufficiency with our year-long program of direct aid, rights education, job skills training, and small business development. They have distributed $42 million in direct aid, microcredit loans, and other program services. Since 1993, Women for Women International has mobilized more than 125,000 women and men in 105 countries worldwide to reach out and support women survivors of war – one woman at a time.

I have offered a coin purse, simple but useful style with a fresh color pallete white and aqua. It is listed in the CABT etsy shop right now. You can see the listing here, worldwide shipping available and will ship directly from me.

Be sure to check out the team shop, other listings and Women for Women. Thanks to the CABT for the opportunity to help this cause.
