Giving Back

MONOLISA Handmade Handbags, Bag Accessories & Jewelry For Women

MONOLISA enjoys giving back to organizations and people in communities. Below are our latest ways of giving back. 


In 2019, MONOLISA donated a variety of their earring designs to Bay Area Cancer Connections (BACC) in Palo Alto. The organization supports anyone affected by breast or ovarian cancer with personalized services that inform and empower. MONOLISA artisan, Lisa Ramos is very excited to be giving back to BACC's upcoming May 7, 2019 event to raise awareness for World Ovarian Cancer Day (WOCD). "The event holds a special place in my heart. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 33 and 17 years later I continue to think about the challenges women and men face with cancer. Finding supportive programs and the right resources can be challenging and overwhelming during the cancer process. BACC's resource center does a truly amazing job providing different support groups and excellent resources!" For more information about BACC visit


In 2019, MONOLISA donated money towards backpacks for foster care children to the wonderful organization, Children usually come into foster care with a small bag of clothes that they can carry. More times than not the items are too small, stained or ripped. Mary Ann’s closet is designed to bridge the gap between what children come with and what they need while easing the burden on the foster parent. Mary Ann’s closet is the solution. Foster parents and relative caregivers have a place to come to get the items they need to meet the needs of the children in their care at no cost to them. 

In 2018, MONOLISA donated jewelry and leather products for the Rescue Gala, Humane Society's annual dinner and auction at Perera Pavilion at the Pleasant Hill Community Center.

Contra Costa Humane Society - Their mission is to empower our community to improve the quality of life for animals and decrease euthanasia rates. Through their programs and services they connect with individuals and private and public organizations to adopt pets, reduce the number of unwanted animals, and educate the public to foster compassion, responsibility, and respect toward animals.
