Bid On A Bag And Save a Life – Yes, It’s That Simple!

30 November 2011

Samantha Cameron’s Jimmy Choo bag

It’s Christmas. You’re stressed. Panic buying has ensued, and yet somehow the list keeps getting longer. But instead of frantic Christmas shopping, what if you could bin the list, do something amazing with your hard-earned cash and bag a new Mulberry in the process? Too good to be true, right?

Actually, wrong. Thanks to Save The Children’s Bag to Save a Life auction, you could do just that. Simply by placing a bid, you could get your hands on a designer handbag by Miu Miu, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Smythson (need I go on?) in time for the office Christmas party AND raise vital funds to save the lives of children all over the world.

Christian Louboutin's velvet bow clutch

The charity is working tirelessly to stop the unnecessary deaths of 7.6 million children under five who die from basic illnesses like pneumonia and diarrhoea each year, purely because they can’t get treatment they desperately need – and you can help.

The money raised from the auction will fund more health workers with the training and equipment they need to treat sick children in the world's poorest countries.

The auction is live now until December 4, and bidders are already racing to get their offers in.

This beautiful Christian Louboutin Artemis velvet bow clutch is storming ahead, closely followed by Sam Cam’s gorgeous Jimmy Choo day bag, which she donated specifically for the cause.

Jane Bruton's Emilio Pucci leopard print bag

And she’s not the only one feeling generous – other celebs backing the Bag to Save a Life campaign include Florence Welch, Tilda Swinton, Sienna Miller - even Grazia’s own Jane Bruton has got involved to donate this Emilio Pucci leopard print bag.

Seriously, what are you waiting for?
