    DENVER, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 800,000 people are homeless on any
 given night in the United States, while more than 50 percent of all homeless
 women and children are fleeing domestic violence situations.  There are 1,500
 shelters for battered women in the United States.
     Through March 31, 2005, eBags.com, the world's largest online retailer of
 bags and accessories, along with Eagle Creek, manufacturer of adventure travel
 gear and luggage, will run a wheeled luggage public collection program that
 will directly benefit The Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
 During the month of March, customers can turn in any clean, empty, and
 functional wheeled luggage piece, and eBags.com will give them an immediate
 $25 discount toward the purchase of a new Eagle Creek wheeled travel piece.
 eBags.com will also pay for customers' trade-in shipping via UPS.  All
 trade-ins must be shipped to eBags.com by April 15, 2005.
     eBags.com will donate all luggage trade-ins to The Colorado Coalition
 Against Domestic Violence (CCADV), a 26-year-old statewide, grassroots,
 non-profit organization providing resources, education and training to over
 40,000 battered women and children in Colorado.  For more details on the
