We are always encouraging our Starlight supporters to find new ways to fundraise that are fun, creative, even innovative, from streaming live-streaming a cake-decorating contest to running a 5K in a superhero costume. So how about fashionable ways to fundraise?
We were delighted to find out that Hammitt, a California handbag company, had chosen Starlight Foundation as the first charity to benefit from their new giving initiative.
The Hammitt Cares initiative is being launched with a bag designed especially for Starlight. The limited-edition design is an oatmeal-colored leather version of their bestselling VIP bag, which can be carried as a folder-over clutch or worn as a shoulder or cross-body bag. While we often hear about companies donating a small portion of sales, Hammitt is making a big commitment: $100 from every bag sold will support Starlight’s mission to deliver happiness to seriously ill children.
The bag will be available for purchase online February 3-29, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Giving a VIP bag is a great way of telling the fashionista VIP in your life just how much you care. Come to think of it, it would also make a good “Gal-entine’s Day” too. Treat a loved one or treat yo’ self! Either way, you’re giving and also giving back.
$100 goes a long way in helping seriously ill children in hospitals across the U.S. $100 delivers happiness to 100 children, with funds raised for us to provide Starlight Virtual Reality headsets, cute and comfortable Starlight Gowns, or Starlight Gaming stations.
