We don't allow advertising on this site. It's a very strict rules we adhere to since this blog is a platform to discuss fashion and style, and not a money making business "enterprise". We don't usually do the whole charity appeal thing either, and we do get asked to all the time. It's not that we are not charitable; before my job was so abruptly taken away from me I gave a small percentage of my wages a month to various charities, it's just we have no desire to preach to people. But this once I am going to make an exception.
Handbag.com and Cancer Research UK have teamed up to launch Handbag Amnesty to raise money to help beat cancer. Having lost both my parents to this evil disease, I know too well the horrific feelings of watching the people you love the most fighting and loosing to cancer.
From September to October celebrities will be donating their bags to be sold on eBay to raise money. The bags will then be auctioned from Friday 3rd - Sunday 14th October to tie in with Breast Cancer Awareness month. All proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK.
However, YOU could win this Mulberry clutch!
All you have to do is do a post about the auction event on your own blog and link back to this post as well as the Handbag.com/amnesty site and leave me a comment or email telling me you've posted about it, and when the auctions are over, I get to chose the winner! Easy.
So go and spread the word on your own lovely blogs and see if we can't get some moola together to help stamp out the scourge that is cancer.
