We have always looked for ways to help others where we could, but we wanted to do more.
GREENVILLE, SC, July 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Since Pouchee, LLC launched in 2005, we have been truly blessed with remarkable success and acceptance by women around the globe. Anita Crook, Founder and CEO of Pouchee, began the company as an idea to organize the bottomless pit called her handbag. Pouchee has since grown into a Fashionably Functional brand.
"We have always looked for ways to help others where we could," quotes Crook, "but we wanted to do more." In our search for organizations with which to work, the Pouchee team found it hard to choose. Do we help local charities; give to health charities or social needs organizations? We came up with a resounding "Yes!"
Our original cotton Pouchees come in a myriad of colors, so Pouchee has decided to take each color and donate a portion of the proceeds from each sale to a corresponding charity. This way we could give to local, health and social charities. The following are the organizations we have chosen for each color.
- Red Cotton Pouchee (Diabetes), Charity: Sansum Diabetes Research Institute. Since 1944, Sansum Diabetes Research has been working to improve lives through diabetes research, nutrition, education, and prevention.
- New Khaki Cotton Pouchee (Support our troops), Charity: The Fisher House Foundation. This program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond what is normally provided.
