One of the most enjoyable things we do at K. Carroll Accessories is naming all of our handbags after inspiring women. From the famous celebrities we admire to the strong women in our personal lives, when we name our bags after these amazing ladies, we channel their spirit in our work lives every day.

That’s why we are so excited to announce our brand new Gina satchel. The Gina bag is named for Gina Kell Spehn, who along with her husband Michael started the New Day Foundation for Families to help families cope with the emotional and financial burdens of cancer. They established the foundation in memory of their late spouses Matt Kell and Cathy Spehn, each of whom lost a valiant battle with cancer, leaving a total of five young children behind. The origins of New Day are told in their New York Times best selling memoir, "The Color of Rain", which also became a Hallmark original movie in 2014.

“Gina and Michael’s story is a compelling story of triumph over tragedy.  It is beautiful story about love, hope and faith,” said K. Carroll Accessories owner/founder, Kelly Carroll Burgin.  “I’ve been personally involved with New Day for years, and I’ve always wanted to find more ways to support the organization.  That’s when we decided to design the Gina bag, to honor an amazing woman for her selfless devotion to helping others and positive outlook on life.  For every bag we sell, we will give 20% back to the New Day Foundation.”

In designing the bag, Kelly decided the bag needed to not just reflect Gina’s personality, but to also incorporate the pillars of the New Day Foundation. The bag not only has different ways to wear it and lots of room for all your things, it’s also great at organization, is feminine and has a lot of style -- just like Gina. Being offered in four colors represents the four pillars of New Day: Camel for Charity, Blue for Hope, Pink for Love, and Gray for Faith.



“Families facing cancer have been hit hard during the pandemic,” said Gina Kell Spehn, co-founder and president of New Day Foundation for Families. “All of us at New Day are addressing both the emotional and financial impact of COVID-19 on our community this year.  From loss of income and delayed treatment to food instability and increased risk of contracting the disease, our families are facing more obstacles than ever before.  We are so grateful to K. Carroll for bringing this incredible fundraising opportunity to New Day.  The beautiful bags represent the values that our organization was built upon: Hope, Faith, Love and Charity.  Just what the world needs more of today!”
