Ashley Stewart Partners with American Cancer Society
to Support Breast Cancer Awareness
Iconic Plus-Size Fashion Brand Announces Donation of $100,000
SECAUCUS, NJ (PRWEB) OCTOBER 28, 2015
Secaucus, NJ – In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Ashley Stewart, a global plus-size fashion brand, launched their True Divas Fight: Support Breast Cancer Awareness campaign in support of the American Cancer Society. Fueled by the generosity of their customers, Ashley Stewart is proud to announce a donation of $100,000 to the American Cancer Society, whose mission is to work relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer.
Beginning in late September, Ashley Stewart featured a variety of pink ribbon fashion items in their stores and online at http://www.AshleyStewart.com and encouraged customers to join in showing their support for the cause. The True Diva Fight campaign is one part of the company’s core mission, #ASGives, that focuses on giving back to communities they serve. The #ASGives mission has included donations to charities in the communities throughout the country in areas where their 89 stores are located, scholarships through the United Negro College Fund, and clothing donations to the YWCA.
“Ashley Stewart is more than a brand; it has been a movement of positive change in our communities for over two decades. We have been through an astonishing transformation over the past two years, but what has not changed is our commitment to the causes important to our customers. Our most loyal friends, our customers, supported us when we had nothing, and we will never forget that,” stated Executive Chairman and CEO James Rhee.
The culmination of the campaign was on October 20th, 2015, when the Ashley Stewart family presented a check for $100,000 to the American Cancer Society at their 125th Street Harlem store. All 89 stores around the country have committed themselves to support the fight against breast cancer and are celebrating this huge success nationally.
Through the end of October 2015, customers still have the opportunity to express their support by purchasing breast cancer awareness geared product including a Pink Ribbon keychain, True Divas Fight tees, a Pink Ribbon sweater, #IAMAshley ribbon tee, Think Pink duster, Tough Chick Tee, Love Rhinestone pin, and assorted awareness jewelry. Prices range from $10.50 to $39.50 and will be available in stores and online at http://www.AshleyStewart.com as supplies last.
To further contribute to the cause, customers have the opportunity to express their support by participating in Ashley Stewart’s social media initiatives. Throughout October, customers can visit Ashley Stewart’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to share an image or quote of why the cause is meaningful to them with the #ASGives hashtag.
