What is Pink Handbag Day?
Basically a day for brolove & charity. It's been a long standing tradition (albeit infrequent & entirely random) that us guys (and girlies) put a pink handbag in our sig & make a charitable donation. The bag pics thing gets quite competitive & kudos goes to the best bag of the day.
