SHOPPING WITH A CAUSE

Donnella's Closet I'm personally not a fan of handbags (I prefer a chic fanny pack instead), but if you are, you'll love this deal. Donnella's Closet is an online designer bag shop that sells authentic items at a reasonable cost. And if you're in New York today, you have a chance of purchasing a purse from your favorite designer while also contributing to a great cause.

A portion of the proceeds will go towards the Fistula Foundation- an organization dedicated to the treatment and prevention of obstetric fistula, the devastating injury caused by obstructed labor.

Tonight's shopping soiree will also include some fine cocktails- what a great way to shop!

Donnella's Closet Handbag Event with a Cause. Free. 265 west 37th Street and Eighth Avenue. 7th floor. 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
