kate spade "hearts" Japan tote- $18 on katespade.com

image via refinery 29
The kate spade "hearts" Japan tote will be available for sale soon.  It is available now for pre-orders.  The entire $18 goes to the Red Cross for Japan relief.  This is a great way to reach out and help our friends in Japan and get a tote to remember this event in history.  I went through Hurricane Ike and remember how it was to have part of my roof blown off and have water everywhere.  We were all safe but will always remember the feeling of helplessness while going through that event.  I am happy to see kate spade doing something to help out even if it is small.  Hopefully if we all purchase a bag or two, they can make a real difference.

Life is Colorful if you like it or not!

the tote sold out in 15 min on  katespade.com but it is also available in stores.  I would suggest calling ahead to see if they have any at your kate spade boutique because they may sell out quickly too!

I don't see the tote available for pre-order on katespade.com! Any idea where we can pre-order the tote? Hope you can help--thanks :)

It will be there really soon! They haven't gotten it listed just yet but I figured as soon as I said it was not there yet, it would appear so I just said available now... lol! It will also be in stores maybe by next week sometime.

thanks redwhitebride! I just took the date off. The article I read on refinery 29 said Friday the 23rd so I didn't know which one it was, friday or the 23rd. :)

Thanks for letting us know about the tote! I've already been thinking about getting a new canvas tote for the farmers' market this summer, so I may as well make a donation at the same time!
