Carminho Mini Cork Purse | Fundraiser
A generous percentage of this bag will go towards raising funds for an extensive and expensive treatment which will help CARMINHO walk again one day.
Meet Carminho, this sweet 3 year old little girl born healthy and strong, has been fighting for her life since she was 5 months old, when frequent out of the blue infant seizures led to a diagnosis of West Syndrome.
A Neurological disorder, which causes:
Abnormal muscle tone at birth.
Subtle staring/unresponsive episodes.
Slow language and/or motor skills.
Decrease in developmental milestones.
Carminho lives in Portugal, and since July her family and friends have been collecting any type of bottle caps that can be sold to be recycled into all sorts of re-usable items. Something that is common in Portugal.
The goal is to raise 6,000 euros = approx. $10,000 dollars, for her extensive and long treatment, which will allow her to one day be able to walk and lead a self sufficient life. A total of 23 Tons of bottle caps is needed, which you can imagine is a lot of caps.
Back in August we held a low key campaign amongst our friends and family and with the help of those who selflessly donated we are able to contribute the equivalent of 3 Tons - it made a difference but we thought we could and should do more. Together we can make a difference in someone's life.
Pre-Order yours today, and be part of Carminho's journey.

Cork is easy to care for.
Simply use a soft damp cloth with mild detergent and rub gently, let air dry. If you notice dirt is very ingrained, especially in the natural cork colour - repeat the process.
Our cork is of premium quality, so cleaning it will not scratch or tear the cork.
Alternatively an eco friendly gentle baby wipe or make up remover works as well.

Rok Cork strives to maintain items in stock at all times, however, due to our rapidly growing brand and the demand from our customers for a high quality sustainable product, our stocks are depleted very quickly. We aim for a quick turnaround time of no more than 3-4 weeks for those items. All of our products are imported from our manufacturing facilities, having them produced in small quantities will ensure that every detail is up to Rok Cork's standards and commitment to provide our customers a truly one of a kind product with exquisite Portuguese craftsmanship.
We will not compromise on quality, and for that reason we ask for your patience and understanding as it is well worth the wait.
When placing an order, if the item is not in stock, Rok Cork will send you an email advising of the estimated time of arrival.
We highly recommend you pre-order to guarantee priority when re-stock shipments come in.
