, the nation's leading women's specialty size apparel brand, is partnering with Columbus-based Nationwide Children's Hospital to support the hospital and its efforts through a national omni-channel campaign this spring.
To kick off the campaign, Lane Bryant will help several Nationwide Children's patients gift their mothers with a special Mother's Day surprise! Videos of the children revealing the special gift they'd most like to give their moms will be posted to the Lane Bryant Facebook and YouTube pages, and those who visit each channel can help generate more awareness of Nationwide Children's and their services by sharing each video. Videos will be sharable from April 18th-May 1st.
Lane Bryant will also offer several opportunities for clients to contribute to Nationwide Children's. Exclusive cause-dedicated products, including a scarf, tee and wrap bracelet, will be available for purchase on April 29th in Lane Bryant stores and on the brand's website with a percentage of the sale being contributed to the hospital. Clients will also have the opportunity to "round up" their purchase at the register for donation from April 29-May 30th.
As part of the campaign, Lane Bryant and Nationwide Children's will partner on an invite-only fashion show hosted and styled by designer Christian Siriano, taking place at the hospital. The fashion show will star Nationwide Children's staff and kids, dressed in the Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant collection and fashions from girls' clothing (and Lane Bryant sister brand) Justice, respectively.
"We are honored that Lane Bryant has chosen to philanthropically partner with Nationwide Children's," said Jim Digan, Nationwide Children's Hospital Foundation president. "On behalf of our patient families and staff, I want to thank Lane Bryantand its associates for their dedication in helping the hospital achieve its mission of providing the highest quality of pediatric research benefiting children all over the country."
