3. R. Riveter's Patton handbag. Cameron Cruse and Lisa Bradley created R.

The  Patton handbag, which is available in black or brown leather, can be worn as a shoulder bag or hands-free crossbody bag or used as a clutch.

Founded by the wife of a naval flight surgeon in 1989, United Through Reading allows servicemembers to record themselves reading stories aloud either before or during an absence from home, then send the videos to their children - whether it's from thousands of miles away, or simply over a drill weekend or duty night.
Cost:
Check with your installation, but donations cover some costs.
