Found: An Awesome, Affordable, Vegan Accessory That's Charitable, Too

It's not often that our deepest shopping desires have a positive effect on our consciences. In fact, our credit-card swipes have brought our moral barometers from clear to guilty more times than we can count.
So, you can imagine our euphoric ecstasy delight when R29's own assistant editor, Gina Marinelli, named Angela & Roi handbags as her editor obsession. Not only are these pretty purses crafted from 100% vegan leather, but they're also ultra-affordable (under $100!) and a portion of all proceeds are donated to various non-profit organizations dedicated to medical research.
In fact, each Angela & Roi bag comes with a colored leather ribbon that is associated with a specific cause. When you buy a bag, you know that $5 will be donated to the cause that is linked to that color. Click through to see five of our favorite Angela & Roi picks along with their ribbon colors and the corresponding causes they support. Just don't forget to tell us which is your favorite.
