School Shooting Bag Raises $26, 000+ | Brahmin Matches eBay Sale Price

Posted on: Dec 28

Ginger LittletonWe recently told you the story of Ginger Littleton, the Florida school board member who auctioned off the Brahmin handbag she used to fend off a gunman at her local meeting. Now we can report that the auction raised more than $26, 000 for Salvage Santa, the charity headed by the security guard who eventually took the shooter down.

The crocodile embossed handbag with the fabulous story was won by an anonymous bidder from Arlington, Virginia. She paid $13, 100 for the faux exotic bag, but the good news doesn't stop there.

Brahmin, the label who made the now famous bag, heard about the story and decided to match the money raised by the auction.

"We applaud the outstanding bravery of all those present at the meeting, especially of Ginger Littleton," said James Bunn, chief marketing officer for Brahmin. "In recognition of Ms. Littleton’s tremendous courage in taking action by standing up for others while risking her own life by doing so, Brahmin is proud to support her wonderful initiative to raise funds for charity."

That means the auction raised $26, 000 for the local Florida children's charity, an impressive markup on the purse's original $345 price tag. How wonderful that something so positive could come out of such a harrowing situation!
