The Traveling Heart Initiative is designed for every survivor of sexual assault to know that there is connection and support waiting for her and that she is not alone.
At the same time we never want our bags to become a stigma of rape. We encourage everyone who supports gender equality to carry a bag in solidarity.
With your $120 tax deductible donation we will deliver one beautiful handmade Traveling Heart Bag to you, and one Traveling Heart Bag to a survivor. Give yourself a treat and make a difference too!
Bags are large enough to take on a weekend get away, a short business trip or even to the grocery store. Every bag is beautifully lined. Almost anywhere you go with your Traveling Heart bag, it will be a wonderful way to start a conversation and stand proudly in your commitment to helping survivors heal.

- Choose from a swatch below- each swatch has a number. There is a limited supply of bags and no two bags look alike. We will continue to add new designs when they become available.
- Choose swatch number, let us know how many bags you like and make your donation.
- Once we receive your donation we will send your bag(s) out immediately!
- Every bag that goes to a survivor comes with an original Traveling Postcard!
If you would like to donate and have both bags go to a survivor, please let us know. A donation of $120 supports up to 2 bags. Feel free to donate as many bags as you like!
Below are a number of swatches. Please let us know which ones you prefer and we will send out a bag immediately.
“The beauty and symbolism of the bags allows for all of us to carry the burdens together, to heal together, to listen to each other, to see each other. To say, though a bag, a post card, the power of a positive transaction in the midst of a negative time; you are not alone, we stand with you, we have been there, let us help.” D. Maller
