It's time for our second Etsy CABTeam shop challenge. This one is called "Change Purses for Change". To participate our team members had to design a change purse, wallet or pouch suitable for holding money. The submissions could be made out of any material, in any color, any size.
The team will be donating the proceeds from this challenge to Women for Women International. To identify the listings for this charity, there will be a Women for Women logo in the listing. We already have 12 submissions in the shop for this challenge, so check them out. It's all for a great cause. Here are just a few of the submissions...
Since it’s creation, Women for Women International has empowered over 153,000 women survivors of war to move toward economic self-sufficiency with it's year-long program of direct aid, rights education, job skills training, and small business development. They have distributed $42 million in direct aid, microcredit loans, and other program services. Since 1993, Women for Women International has mobilized more than 125,000 women and men in 105 countries worldwide to reach out and support women survivors of war – one woman at a time.
In October we'll host a giveaway on our team blog. Readers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite change purse. More details on the giveaway later.
