Donate by Shopping 

OMG. I'm such a sucker for a bargain.

This afternoon, just after Noon, I received an email from The Sak Warehouse. The Sak is a handbag company whose Warehouse is on Harrison Street in San Francisco.

Twice a year, the warehouse has a HUGE sale - 50-70% off regular prices. They have them in May and November (or something like that).

Anyhow, the email that I received today announced that The Sak Warehouse was having a one-day Sale to benefit the hurricane relief effort. 100% of sales would be donated to the American Red Cros Hurricane Katrina relief effort. 100%. That's impressive.

The sale is today only from 1:00-8:00pm.

I had a 2:00 meeting with one of my clients in Union Square today. I got out around 3:30, and drove over the Sak to look for some bargains.

...and many a bargain was found.

I found a few bags for myself, a few for my sister, and a few for gifts.

It's pretty hard to feel guilty about shopping when:

a) It's a warehouse sale, and purses start at $7.00
b) I'm getting a head-start on Xmas pressies
c) 100% of the sales go directly to the hurricane relief effort.

When I left around 5:00pm, I think they had already raised something like $12,000. I can't imagine how much they'll raise by the end of the sale tonight.
