Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
In response to the enthusiastic reaction of their customers, Bagettes.com has expanded their line to become "Bagettes for a Cause," and includes a total of nine charities and awareness causes. Owner Felice Azorsky said "We had no idea 'Bagettes For A Cure' would generate so much support. Because breast cancer has touched our lives directly, and the lives of so many, it was easy to design a bag to raise money and awareness. The enthusiatic response from our customers to the new bag has motivated us to support other organizations looking for a new way to raise money for causes close to their hearts."
The "Bagettes For A Cause" make-up bag measures 7" x 4", and features the customer's name, or name of a friend, family member or loved against the backdrop of the words "Faith, Hope & Courage." Each bag is custom made and comes with a nylon liner and a custom ribbon which can be personalized with any phrase. For breast cancer awareness, "Faith, Hope and Courage" and the custom ribbon are in pink. In expanding the line, Bagettes.com will coordinate the color of the ribbon and text on the cosmetic bag with the awareness cause or charity, and will contribute $3.00 of every bag sold to the charity.
The nine charities to benefit are: Breast Cancer Research/Susan G. Komen for the Cure, AIDS Research/The Global Fund to Fight AIDS in Africa and Until There's a Cure, MADD - Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Lymphoma/American Cancer Society, Livestrong/Lance Armstrong Foundation, Military Support/Operation Gratitude, Liver Cancer Research/ American Cancer Society, Alzheimer's Research/Alzheimers Association,
Pancreatic Cancer/American Cancer Society, Leukemia/American Cancer Society and Spinal Cord Injury Research/Christopher Reeve Foundation.
Azorsky goes on to say "We wanted to create a make- up and accessory bag that was sleek, stylish and functional - it's a great way to honor someone, let someone know you're thinking of them, give words of encouragement, while supporting a good cause."
