I definitely love to surf the net and while I'm on it, I always look out for some cool and fab online stores where I can shop my heart out and recommend them to my friends and blog readers. And yes, I found a shop in one of my rounds on Facebook. You know how we girls love to shop for bags! We can never have just one bag in our closet, we obviously need more - one thing that guys will never understand! LOL.
So to feed our cravings for fashionable bags, Bagellia Filipinas was created! The owners, Kim Castillo and Hiyasmin Neri opened the online store last February 2012 because they wanted to re-introduce trendy and functional bags that are proudly made in the Philippines. Their target is basically the young market who loves to shop for colorful satchels, envelop clutches and gadget cases. Here are just some of the bags you will definitely love from their collection!
But Bagellia Filipinas is not just an ordinary online store - they have heart! Yes,you heard that correctly. Aside from excellent customer service, the whole point of why Bagellia Filipinas works so hard in giving their customers only the best products is because of Joyce. Who is Joyce? And why is she so important to them?
Joyce is a 23 year old lady who was initially operated through Kasai procedure when she was only three months old, and this has enabled her to live normally, until she reached nineteen years of age. An odd case, Joyce is currently the longest living person in the Philippines with Billiary Artresia. Most patients with the same condition die by the age of three.
Throughout her college years, Joyce shifted from one school to another due to her irregular attendance and frequent confinements in the hospitals. In her last year of college in Trinity, her liver bled severely which disabled her to finish her studies and put all her dreams and careers on hold. To read more of Joyce's story, you can visit this BLOG.
To fulfill their mission of helping out Joyce, Bagellia Filipinas dedicated a whole collection of fashionable bags for the project. For every bag sold, a portion of the sale will go to the Aid for Joyce Project! They also went as far as organizing a fashion show for the entire 12-piece bag collection which were auctioned to raise funds for Joyce's operation. This show was held at Scarlet Lounge, Fort Bonifacio last May 30, 2012.
