Still shopping for a cause

I don't know about you, but I am highly likely to purchase something if the proceeds go to a great cause.   On Tuesday, I ordered the Tory Burch & Rue La La  for Japan Relief shirt and was thrilled to see that Kate Spade would be offering a tote for Japan.  I found this out via being a fan of Kate Spade on facebook and like many others, I had fb open for a few days waiting for the link to the pre-sale.   Boy, some of the comments on fb were crazy and mean.  I think a few are trying to score a great deal and forgetting the tragic reason behind the product.   There is a  limit of four shirts on Rue La La, which I think is a smart idea ensuring that more people have a chance to order one.   I saw a posting on fb that someone bought 30 of the totes.   That is ridiculous!  If you are that gung-ho to help Japan, please make a straight donation.    

Tory Burch & Rue La La for Japan

Kate Spade Support Japan Tote
I guess I am one of the few lucky ones,  I ordered mine without any problems.  It appears they sold out quickly, not surprising given the feedback on fb.  Kate Spade posted that they will be trying to get more shipped out to stores for sale.   I feel for the folks at Kate Spade just trying to do some good,  I feel even more for the people of  Japan.    

p.s.  I have the Marimekko® tote for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.  Another great cause!

Thank you to Rue La La and Kate Spade facebook for use of their photos.
