Jack Spade Reversible Superhero/Civilian Coal Bag

How awesome is this bag from Jack Spade? The tote bag features illustrations of normal civilian things on one side such as pens, glasses, a metrocard, and an ipod on one side. Once you turn it inside out, there are illustrations of superhero paraphernalia such as grappling hooks, a utility belt, and a mask. The bag was created to benefit a non-profit organization called 826NYC that supports creative writing for students aged 6-18. Aside from that, it also supports the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. Perhaps this particular bag tugs at my heartstrings because I'm a Literature major.

If you're living in New York and want to volunteer at 826NYC, you can sign up online.

Interns will be required to work at least 15 hours per week. While most of the time will be spent on specialized projects, everyone will be expected to pitch in wherever needed: from covering a store shift, to taking out the trash, weeding the garden, and of course, working with our students.

Sounds like a lot of fun! If I was in New York I'd definitely volunteer.
