Countdown to Second "HOPE Handbag" Nomination Deadline

Last year, we were able to give away 17 HOPE Handbags to local survivors (valued at $500+ each). The impact of this program was more than we could have expected. "To see the sheer joy, and honor on these survivors' faces was rewarding beyond what I had anticipated." Said, Amber Melby, survivor, founder, and president of B the Light.

This year, B the Light will be distributing HOPE Handbags to nominated recipients as one part of their mission of bringing HOPE and shining light on survivors.

This year, contents will include:

· $150 HyVee Grocery Store

· $100 New Ulm Community Market & Co-op

· $100 in New Ulm Area Chamber Bucks

· $150 toward services at the New Ulm Wellness Collective

· Beauty Counter Clean Cosmetic Gift Set

· Support tools and information from local area community organizations

· B the Light branded bag, mug, t-shirts, and "Never Give Up Hope" magnet

All support stays within our community to benefit area businesses as well as local survivors. Between now and December 4th, go to and nominate a survivor for this special honor!
