As a person who has always supported causes I believe in, let me introduce you to a new handbag brand I recently discovered: Angela Roi.

Angela Roi started from the ground up by a couple (read their story, here) and is an online brand combining fashion with philanthropy. A&R produce vintage-inspired handbags that have a modern-day touch, and include cross-body handbags, totes, and shoulder handbags all made from vegan leather.

A&R offers the handbags in a variety of colors, which are all inspired by life (check out their blog!), and each color representing a different charity. For each handbag purchased, $5 is donated to the corresponding charity of the color of the handbag purchased. So if you purchase a pink tote, $5 is donated to breast cancer research. Or if you purchase a red cross-body bag, $5 is donated to HIV/AIDS research. Their handbags have even been featured on Refinery 29!

If you read my blog regularly, then you know this is JUST the thing I’ve been waiting for and I cannot wish the company more success! I don’t know about you, but this is something I can really get behind!

I’ve actually just purchased a tote this morning and cannot wait for it to arrive and get some snaps to do a follow-up article with. So, please, get shopping over at NOW! (The handbag lover in your life will love you forever — especially when you tell them the back story!)
