Best friends are a special thing. Soul sisters are a rare treasure. One that often ended at childhood when you stopped trading friendship necklaces. But BuyLoveGiveLove is bringing that back.
BuyLove came to life at a local starbucks when two childhood friends came together with a vision in mind. Like a friendship bracelet for grown ups, the tote bags comes in a pair, each one containing half of a bigger design that can be seen when the bags are placed side by side. The designs are intricately-sketched heart details that is sure to make all the girly girls in us swoon.
Even better, you’d be supporting a good cause by purchasing a tote bag! Each tote bag would focus on empowering women through different non-profit organizations. Each bag purchased will give 5% of its proceeds to a non-profit organization that best represents that line.
The official launch party for the line is November 7th, 2010 in Pomona, CA. A sneak peak of the lines will be shown along with information about the various organizations BuyLove is working with. Each bag purchased will include a message about the organization that the proceeds will be going to, in hopes of inspiring women and girls everywhere to get involved. The tote bags are perfect for school, work, or even the beach. It has a top zip closure with two interior pockets and is made out of a cotton canvas with leather PU trim and metal feet on the bottom.
The BuyLove tote, with a design of an oversized gift-wrapped heart will give proceeds to Precious Life Shelter, whose mission is to provide residential and supportive services for homeless pregnant adult women.
The BuyForgiveness tote, a patched up heart, will support Marin Services for Women, helping women save and transform their lives by providing the most effective substance abuse recovery programs.
And last but not least, the BuyStrength tote (pictured above), a pretty tree blossoming with hearts, will support Operation Courage is Beautiful whose mission is to show our appreciation for our courageous military service women’s contribution and sacrifice by shipping care packages that give a little joy and femininity to their service lives.
