Save the Girls– We all live with our phones now. It is how we communicate, find directions, watch movies and much more. But our clothing doesn’t quite cooperate with our phone use. Save the Girls Touch Screen Purses began after the founder, Tami Lange, had two daughters’ phones bite the dust in the same week. One washed and spun, the other was lost on a hike. Her sister-in-law had a solution. She used her bra as a cell pocket even-though she had breast cancer!Lange decided it was time to stop the madness. She developed a way for women and girls alike to safely and securely carry their phones.She quit her job of 20 years and flew to Asia where she found three factories to make her products. One year later and she has already sold over 1.2 million dollars worth of specialty Touch Screen Purses! savethegirls.com
