Take a peek at the Vera Bradley "bake sale."

I truly love Vera Bradley luggage. The classic lines and colorful patterns of their totes, duffles, diaper bags and key chains offer fun ways to express myself. And I love the sweet surprise of receiving new pieces for my collection. A green tote for high school graduation. A small green duffle for Christmas after college. The fabulous red pieces for my wedding. And just last year, I received a new key chain from my sister in law for my birthday. Each piece represents a bright, happy memory.

But I’ve never been more surprised or delighted by Vera Bradley than I was last fall when Cookies for Kids’ Cancer learned the team at Vera Bradley had thrown their support behind us in a BIG way. On what was otherwise a regular day of working to spread the word about the needs surrounding pediatric cancer funding, out of the blue came the news. Two pages of the Spring 2010 Vera Bradley catalog were dedicated to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’s “sweet” approach to raising funds for new and improved treatments for pediatric cancer. In the same vibrant colors as their fabrics, the Vera Bradley team created and photographed a beautiful bake sale with cupcakes and cookies and beautiful kids. . .our version of a recipe for happiness.

So, thank you Vera Bradley. We are humbled and grateful for your support.

If you want to see the Spring collection, go to And if you fall in love with some of their pieces, well just stay tuned to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. . .very soon, we’ll be sharing a surprise of our own that includes a few items from the newest Vera Bradley collection {plus other fun gifts} up for grabs this spring to bake sale hosts.

It’s never too soon to start thinking about spring, bake sales and pretty, pretty luggage. We hope you’ll let Vera Bradley inspire you!
