COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Plus size apparel brand Lane Bryant and intimates brand Cacique are thrilled to announce the continuation of the Give.Love.Share. campaign in support of Columbus-based Nationwide Children's Hospital and the hospital's mission of providing the highest quality care to all children and their families, regardless of their ability to pay.

Since 2016, Lane Bryant and Cacique have raised over $1.7M dollars for Nationwide Children's through multiple initiatives. At the conclusion of the Give.Love.Share. campaign on January 5, 2019 the brands aim to meet a goal of over $2M in overall donations.

"It's an incredible honor to have the opportunity to give back to a hospital whose staff and caregivers work tirelessly to impact the lives of children across the country," said ascena Plus Fashion Segment President Eric Hunter. "The ability to support Nationwide Children's throughout the holiday season through the Give.Love.Share. campaign is so meaningful to Lane Bryant and Cacique, as so many children and their families benefit from the incredible care and life-saving research Nationwide Children's performs daily."

Starting today, Lane Bryant and Cacique will offer clients the opportunity to contribute to Nationwide Children's in store and online. Clients who donate $5 or more in store during the holiday season will receive a coupon with two exclusive offers. Lane Bryant and Cacique will also offer register round up opportunities to clients who shop in locations nationwide throughout the Give.Love.Share. initiative.

Not only will Lane Bryant and Cacique offer opportunities for clients to donate to Nationwide Children's, the brands will raise awareness for the hospital (while encouraging donations) through content that will be shared across Lane Bryant social media and digital channels, highlighting how donations from the brand impact care and research at Nationwide Children's.

"On behalf of the patients, families and staff at Nationwide Children's, we are grateful Lane Bryant and Cacique decided to support the hospital again this holiday season," said Niki Shafer, senior vice president, outreach, Nationwide Children's Hospital Foundation.
