Lane Bryant Raises $331K in Donations for Nationwide Children’s Hospital

Through its Inspired to Give campaign, the brand generated both donations and awareness for the hospital and its services

Columbus, OH - 5/8/2017

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lane Bryant, the nation's leading women's plus size apparel brand, is thrilled to announce that the brand has raised $331K in donations for Columbus-based Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Throughout Lane Bryant’s Inspired to Give campaign, the brand raised both donations and awareness for the hospital and its services through a variety of initiatives in stores and online. The brand offered exclusive coupon books for a $5 donation, as well as a register round-up in store. Clients were able to “round-up” their purchase to the nearest dollar for donation, or had the option to contribute a flat donation to Nationwide Children’s.

“We are grateful to have the support of Lane Bryant,” said Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation President Jim Digan. “The company’s leadership and associates are so dedicated to helping Nationwide Children’s improve lives for children and families across the country. They selflessly made great things happen for folks they will never meet.”

The brand also partnered with Nationwide Children’s on a special campaign video, that showed members of the dance company Pretty BIG Movement (who also appear in Lane Bryant’s Inspired by #ThisBody initiative) teaming up with several Nationwide Children’s Hospital Patient Champions. The video, as well as several images from the shoot, were shared across Lane Bryant’s digital channels throughout the Inspired to Give campaign.
