NelleclutchThere has never been a better time to buy a handbag. On Friday, Jan. 29, local designer Laura Nelli will donate 30 percent of every Nelle Handbag  purchase to Vision of Hope Ministries Earthquake Relief Fund, a non-profit that has been empowering the people of Haiti since 1993. "Like many small business owners, I felt compelled to contribute," said Nelli, who happens to be close friends with the founders of VOHM. "They are providing necessary care to those most in need." Purchases on Jan. 29 will be shipped in time for Valentine's Day with a small note mentioning that a portion of proceeds went to help the people of Haiti.
