San Francisco–Yes it’s been almost 10 years.
This September 11 marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York and The Sak is doing what it can to ease the pain. The handbag company is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its iconic crochet flag themed Betty Sue collection to The Brooke Jackman Foundation.
The Brooke Jackman Foundation honors the memory of one of 9/11’s fallen heroes by helping kids achieve their full potential through literacy programs.
“With our headquarters based in New York City, the events of 9/11 really hit home,” says Mark Talucci, Co-Founder of The Sak Brand Group. “We are passionate about helping children, the future of our country, and as a company we are continuously looking for ways to give back. This is a cause that is very close to our hearts.”
The Betty Sue crochet collection includes a crossbody, malboro, placemat (set of 4), medium cosmetic case and decorative pillow. The collection retails for $17 to $39.
