Y’all remember my dear, amazing and brilliant friend Julianne, she of JulieApple Design Studio, right?
Well, she has just TOTALLY surprised me with a most amazing gift.
About the Home/Work Tote:
Do you take your work home with you? I confess, I take my work everywhere I go. For all of you who work hard and work on the go, go, GO! I made the Home/Work bag. Keep your laptop at the ready in this padded laptop bag with two body compartments and plenty interior pockets and an exterior zip pocket.
And because a mother’s work is never done, JulieApple will contribute 25% of the purchase price of every bag to Henry’s Fund. Please watch Henry’s Story and help JulieApple and Henry’s family provide hope and help.

Now I realize that $158 may sound like a lot for a bag, but let me explain why JulieApple’s products are priced a bit higher than the mass-produced totes and bags you might see at a big box store. After I do, I think you will understand and appreciate the value of the JulieApple line.
Julianne’s small business operates according to her own core values, which include finding and using high-quality, innovative and truly green materials and processes to create her beautiful (and also very practical) bags. Additionally, Julianne works hard to be certain that her employees and contract workers are compensated fairly and treated with respect. She doesn’t compromise when it comes to quality materials, and while that may mean that a JulieApple bag costs more than a tote you might pick up at a major chain retailer, it also means you’re supporting a mother-owned and operated small business, the lifelong dream of one of the most entrepreneurial people I’ve ever met.
And as someone who actually carries JulieApple bags every single day – for work, for shopping and for travel – I can tell you that they are gorgeous and incredibly durable. Not a week goes by when someone doesn’t stop me on the street, in an elevator at my office, or while I’m dashing through an airport to ask me where I got whatever JulieApple bag I happen to be carrying.
So please help spread the word! Share a link to the new JulieApple Home/Work Tote for Henry’s Fund with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and by email. Also, if any of y’all have have any personal or professional connections with buyers for any stores or catalogs that might be interested in carrying the new JulieApple Home/Work Tote supporting Henry’s Fund, will you ask your buyer-friend or acquaintance to take a look? I sure would appreciate it. Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if some great shops and catalogs with lots of customers began carrying these bags? Just think of how many treatment scholarships for teenagers struggling with addiction that we could fund….
Thanks so much from Henry’s whole family!
And HUGE love to Julianne & Toby for all their support through, well, everything. xoxoxo – Katie
