Glam for Good - Charity Spotlight

Our November 3rd anniversary party is fast approaching, and we're sewing up special bags for our annual Glam for Good collection of one-of-a-kind bags. We'll donate a percentage of the sale price to three of our favorite regional charities.
Chimp Sanctuary Northwest provides lifetime quality care for formerly abused and exploited chimpanzees while advocating for great apes. Located in Cle Elum, Washingtion, CSNW is home to seven chimps that were rescued from biomedical research. Visit their website to meet the chimps here.
Portland-based MercyCorps is dedicated to the mission of alleviating suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities around the world.

From their website, "We listen to locals and prioritize their most urgent needs. We fix market gaps to drive economic recovery. We bring groups together to negotiate conflict and strengthen civic participation. We think big, start small and take responsible risks to find solutions that benefit the greatest number of people."
