INNOVATIVE ECO-FRIENDLY SOUTH FLORIDA COMPANY JOINS FORCES WITH ACTRESS & ACTIVIST MARIA BELLO FOR A GLOBAL MOVEMENT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 3, 2012—South Florida based “The Give Bag” company has joined forces with Maria Bello, actress, activist and Co-Founder of “WE ADVANCE”. The synergy between these two organizations is a fluid fit and the collaboration will provide exponentially beneficial results on a global scale. For every Give Bag sold, WE ADVANCE will receive a monetary donation that will be applied directly to their organization’s efforts in Haiti. The Give Bag, a trackable, infinitely reusable and “eco-chic” bag is dedicated to decreasing millions of tons of environmental waste across the planet. WE ADVANCE’s efforts are focused on advancing the health, safety and well-being of women throughout Haiti. The alliance between these two socially and environmentally responsible organizations will provide much needed funds for the work of “WE ADVANCE” in Haiti. WE ADVANCE models an inclusive grassroots approach with a movement that collaborates with both other organizations and women from every socio-economic class. It is a rights- and community-based participatory program, empowering women’s minds, bodies and spirits and enabling them to discover their own needs and priorities, benefiting the entire community. WE ADVANCE brings in volunteer experts to train local community leaders in the aspects of health, safety and education.
“What a fabulous, simple way to make the world more interconnected and make a difference! WE ADVANCE is delighted to work with The Give Bag. What better way to spread our advocacy for women’s empowerment globally and support our programs for Haitian women than to partner up with a beautiful product that allows each and every one of us to help? We thank The Give Bag and Sara for their support. And we thank you for each donation that comes with your purchase,” explains Maria Bello, actress, activist and Co-Founder of WE ADVANCE.
“Since the inception of The Give Bag, we have been committed to supporting local, national and international philanthropies. The collaboration with We Advance was a natural fit on a multitude of levels. As a female owned business, we are devoted to empowering women across the globe. This alliance will provide very tangible results for our fundraising efforts and we are honored to be working with such an amazing organization,” says Sara Starkoff Green, inventor and owner of The Give Bag.
For every Give Bag sold, a portion of proceeds will go directly to WE ADVANCE to support their efforts in Haiti. The Give Bag is releasing a new “We Advance” Give Bag tote that will be available Fall 2012. For more information, please visit www.thegivebag.com or www.weadvance.org
