Albert Einstein once said “It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it”. Many of you come to this website daily to read about the latest trends in handbags and the fashion world. Even the tag line of the website, ‘shallow obsessing strongly encouraged’, reflects that we are all here for fun to drool over objects that are not a necessity in life. But it is always important to give back, no matter what the amount. From as long as I can remember my parents always stressed the importance of giving to those who have less, need more, the sick, the forgotten, the young, the old, the world. But no matter what, always give back. After talking about it from time to time, some of the members from the Purse Forum got together and decided it was finally time to do something. Starting today, the Purse Blog and Purse Forum will choose a charity of the month. To keep matters simple and let everyone know exactly where their money is going, any money donated will go directly to the charity. We will apply a button to the top of the Purse Blog and Purse Forum naming the charity we are supporting that month and link the button directly to the donate page. You may decide to donate depending on the cause, one month and not the next, not at all, or every time. It is up to you. There will be a thread on tPF where you may suggest a new charity for the next month. The Purse Blog and Purse Forum will donate a portion of our advertising revenue monthly. We hope you all choose to donate if possible to very worthy causes!
For the first month, Vlad and I choose The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. You can find more information about the charity of the month on their website. Because of Mother’s Day, the month of May can be really hard for those who have lost their mother, either physically or mentally. If you can, please donate to this great cause!
