Charleston, SC (PressExposure) July 03, 2008 -- Summertime shopping for the women of South Carolina will feel better than ever in the month of July, thanks to a special charitable-giving campaign launched by Mt. Pleasantâs In the Bag store where customers can design their own handbag.
Through the month-long âIn the Bag Gives Backâ initiative, anyone who hosts a trunk show (at the In the Bag store, the hostâs home or another location of their choosing) will receive 10-15% of that showâs revenue for the charity of their choice.
The owners of In the Bag invite the public to host a trunk show of their own or attend one of the scheduled shows from 5-8 p.m. on the following dates: July 10 â Women Making a Difference July 15 â Honduras Outreach, Inc. July 30 â Communities in Schools July 31 â American Heart Association
âWeâre so excited about this campaign,â says Lissa Kemp Myers, owner of In the Bag. âAs much as we all love the fun of designing our own handbags, nothing feels as good as giving back to the community.â
