The Traveling Bag For A Cause

Traveling Bag for a Cause was an idea spawned after Jill over on Spoils of Wear participated in Kimberly's Traveling Scarf Challenge.   She didn't know it would necessarily be a bag or what cause it would benefit, she knew she wanted to host a traveling item that would raise awareness for a deserving charity.  It all came together while volunteering at Feed My Starving Children in January 2011.  Read the launch post.  

This bag is hand made and is used as a means of income for women in rural Swaziland. 
The company these women have created is called Timbali Crafts. 
Timbali means flowers in the Swazi language. 
It is also the word used to translate the word lilies in Matthew 6:28-30 when Jesus taught about his loving care
and provision for the needs of His children.

I decided to go ultra casual today. 
I am just running yuck errands 
and 
I also thought my casual attire would make the eye focus more on the awesome bag.
Even though I am ultra casual...
notice I am NOT in sweats or yoga attire.
  Ladies you can go casual and look cute at the same time!
