Clutch for Cures - Benefiting 6 Different Charities
If you are looking for a purse that says "WOW" and also benefits a truly worthy
cause you owe it to yourself to checkout the Clutch for Cures collection by
K.Peer Designs. Available in six different styles, each style benefits a different charity. The collection was inspired by the popular magazine clutch purses of the 1960's and each cover features a different Hollywood icon. Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Clara Bow, Sara Jane and Grace Kelly together create the 2009 collection. Each of the six benefiting charities was selected specifically for the actress that is featured on that charities purse and is based on a personal experience in the actresses' life. For example; Audrey Hepburn lost her life to colon cancer, therefore a $10 donation is made to the Colon Cancer Alliance each time an Audrey Hepburn clutch is purchased. Additional causes included the fight against breast cancer, domestic violence, depression and suicide prevention, children in foster care and the education of youth about the dangers of smoking.
