Angela & Roi: Fashion for a Cause

Angela & Roi is a handbag company created by a couple, Angela and Roi Lee, which is dedicated not only to making fashionable bags, but donating to charity. Their handbags are grouped by color, and each color stands for a cause. When you buy a handbag 5 dollars is donated to the charity corresponding to the color! All of their partners are non-profit organizations, so you know that all the money is really being used for good. 

Colors/Causes (from their website): Click the color to see all the bags in that color!
