A Great #MothersDay Gift - Dee Ocleppo 3-in-1 Handbags

Last week I got attended the Moms4Moms Autism Speaks Mother's Day Luncheon. While I don't necessarily agree with all of Autism Speaks philosophies - specifically on finding a cure for autism - I do appreciate the opportunities they provide for families. Like partnering with The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum Complex to host a Access Family Program.  Autism Speaks was one the first organization I turned to for guidance when The Boy was first diagnosed.

During the Moms4Moms luncheon, Autism Speaks honored one of their National Board Members: Dee Ocleppo, designer and mom to an autistic son. Dee graciously donated her signature 3-in-1 Handbags to be sold on the Autism Speaks online store.
Through the sale of the handbags, with an estimated value of close to $300,000, 100 percent of the proceeds fund the mission of Autism Speaks. The organization also announced its Mother’s Day special: each of the bags will be on sale from now until May 12 for $88 – representing the one in 88 children affected by autism. The special also includes free shipping until Mother’s Day.       
Free Shipping Code: MOMS4MOMS

All the moms received the Plaza Clutch Taupe/Quilted Taupe as a Mother's Day gift. It's versatile and chic and just my style. A great bag that can go with so many outfits. 
What do you think of my bag? I LOVE IT!  
 Disclaimer: I received a complimentary bag by attending the Autism Speaks lunch. All opinions are my own.
