Your Designer Handbags Can Save Lives

Clean out your closet and help pets in need with the face foundation.




(PRESS RELEASE) SAN DIEGO, CA – The animal nonprofit FACE Foundation wants your used luxury items to help save lives – right in time for spring cleaning! Tidy up your space a-la-Marie Kondo and donate your gently loved designer and vintage handbags, sunglasses, and fine jewelry to FACE’s 9th annual shopping event of the season, Bags & Baubles. Taking place on April 28th, 2019, this event raises proceeds for pets in need of life-saving veterinary care, so you can rest assured that your donation will be going towards a good cause. Requested brands include but are not limited to: Rebecca Minkoff, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Stella McCartney, Ted Baker, Prada, Gucci, Luis Vuitton, Chanel, and Jimmy Choo.

“All donations will directly help to support local pets facing economic euthanasia who deserve a second chance. You can truly make your spring cleaning life-saving this year by supporting this fantastic event,” says FACE’s Executive Director Danae Davis. Donated items are fully tax-deductible and will be auctioned to provide grants to local San Diego families who are unable to afford treatment for their critically injured or sick pets.

Approximately 430 guests and volunteers attended last year’s Bags & Baubles, which raised nearly $130,000 for pets facing life-threatening conditions. Registration for the 2019 event will be open soon at

FACE Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 public charity that has assisted nearly 2,300 pets to date. Those looking for information about sponsorships or making a tax-deductible donation to Bags & Baubles can contact FACE by calling 858-450-3223, visiting, or emailing
