My bag is YOURS! is a brand new initiative of the Montreal Women’s Y Foundation which will take place from March 15 to June 15, 2017. Give a new or pre-loved quality handbag and then buy a new one through our online auction! Profits will go to the Women’s Y Foundation, to support programs and services offered by the YWCA Montreal.
A feel-good initiative!
The Foundation invites you to give new or pre-loved bags. They will be collected at the YWCA Montreal, starting mid-March through April 7. At the same time, a handbag drive will be held at several companies that have agreed to participate in this campaign.
You don’t have a bag to give? You can simply make a donation and our team will buy a bag on your behalf through one of our partners.
All the collected bags will be put for sale during a virtual auction. Profits will go to the Women’s Y Foundation, to continue to offer concrete support to thousands of Montreal women, thanks to the programs and services offered by the YWCA Montreal.
The My bag is YOURS! campaign will conclude with the My bag is YOURS! Happening which will take place June 15, 2017 at the YWCA Montreal.
Stay tuned and follow us on the Foundation’s Facebook page to find out everything about this fun campaign!
Give a bag, buy a bag!
The handbag drive
Starting mid-March through April 7, we invite you to donate a new or pre-loved handbag. Collected bags will be refreshed and prepared as need be by the Women’s Y Foundation volunteers and posted for an online auction taking place from May 18 to June 27, 2017.
When offering a bag for the auction, you will have the opportunity to include a short note in the bag, explaining your reason for giving it to another woman. Career advice, a memory, motivating thought… let your imagination guide you! Download the form and write your short note.
Make another woman happy while contributing to a better future for girls and women!
The online auction
The My bag is YOURS! virtual auction is an opportunity to find that designer bag you have always dreamt of! Take advantage of this great opportunity to get a beautiful bag while supporting the YWCA Montreal programs and services.
The auction will take place from May 18, 9am to June 3, 5pm.
