Donatella Versace for charity!

You might not know this but, Donatella Versace as fabulous as she may be is also an absolute sweetheart. She has a real heart of gold. This summer, she launched the Art Unites program at the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan. But that's not all. She also partnered with Starlight Children's foundation to create her next IT bag. In fact, several children from the foundation had the chance to try their hand at handbag print design. Their mandate was to draw pictures on the theme of friendship.
Each of their illustrations will then be made into a Versace tote. Each tote will be sold for $250 with all the proceeds from the sales going to Starlight Children's Foundation who caters to sick children in America and to Jet Li One Foundation, which helps 2008 earthquake victims in China's Sichuan province.
When can you get one, you ask?
Well, the totes are now available online exclusively through Gilt Groupe. And, if you make your purchase by December 1st, you will receive %20 discount at any Versace boutique in the U.S. Now that's really sweet!
Love, Kelie

Just a thought...
