Win an Anya Hindmarch clutch! Spread the word about the Handbag Amnesty

September is Handbag Month over at, and they’ve teamed up with Cancer Research UK to raise money for the fight against cancer by asking celebrities to donate handbags from their closets. These bags will be auctioned on eBay during October 3-14 for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK, the largest single funder of breast cancer research in the UK. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightley, Mischa Barton, and Scarlett Johansson are just a few of the celebrities who have already donated bags. But this is not just about celebrities, everyone is encouraged to donate a bag in good condition to one of Cancer Research UK’s charity shops.

To help promote this important cause, I’m giving away this Anya Hindmarch bag courtesy of Handbag Amnesty to one lucky reader! This lovely clutch retails for $433.00 and has three black jewels on front, kiss clasp with black bead detail, black suede lining and a branded logo on the front and inside. Measures 24cm×11.5cm×6cm.

    Here’s mine! (Sorry I don’t have a blog)

    Females are born with the gift of breast and a love for fashion. Unfortunately, both breast and fashion can prove troublesome for some. Great fashion is sometimes hard to find, and more seriously, some women are unfortunately diagnosed with Breast Cancer. and Cancer Research UK have found a way to both spread awareness about Breast Cancer while feeding our fashion needs.

    Many celebrities have been asked to donate bags to the cause of Breast Cancer and from October 3-14, these bags will go up for auction on eBay. ALL proceeds will go to the Cancer Research UK.

    So, for the month of October (which is Breast Cancer Awareness month) try to learn more about Breast Cancer and indulge in some new bags. If someone questions how much money you spend, tell them it’s for a good cause! (and then explain it to them, maybe you’ll encourage some more people to help the cause!)

    I can’t wait to see how much money these bags are going to raise.
    ps. I don’t mind not winning the bag, as long as the awareness is there I’m happy.

    Hi! I’m so glad I came over here and saw this because I didn’t even know about the handbags for charity auctions. I posted the information at > . If I left anything out or need to add information please let me know.
