Handbags of Hope Exchange (HOHX) is an organization founded by Erika Hernandez geared towards inspiring, educating, and giving back by collecting gently used handbags filled with everyday goods for women in need. Our mission is to empower women who are struggling to rebuild their lives. The initial activities have included the collection of in-kind contributions for those in need, as seen in the first every HOHX event with the donation of over 175 toiletry-filled bags.
Specifically, we partner with local women’s organizations to redistribute our collected bags to the community. With this assistance, we help in establishing more confidence in women so they can grow and develop a brighter future for themselves. 100% of our events’ net profits are donated to the collaborating organization(s).
WHY EXCHANGE ?
All guests are asked to bring a gently used handbag filled with toiletries and snacks for a woman in need to all our events and/or gatherings. Not only will you help someone with your donation, but in EXCHANGE you will receive a brand new handbag filled with a variety of gifts and products! Need we say more?
