Women's specialty retailer dedicates a percentage of sales proceeds to help find a cure.
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Long an advocate of supporting charities and raising awareness of women's health issues, Christopher & Banks Corporation is using its insight into fashion by offering a collection of exclusively designed accessories to raise funds in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
In addition to raising awareness of ongoing efforts to eliminate the impact of breast cancer in the United States, this new collection was designed to encourage Christopher & Banks customers to spread the word about breast cancer. "The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's mission is to achieve prevention and to find a cure," commented LuAnn Via, President and CEO, Christopher & Banks Corporation. "We are proud to join in this fight, both in supporting research around the world and to increase public awareness about breast cancer prevention."
The new exclusively designed breast cancer awareness accessory collection, priced starting at $9.95, includes earrings, a bracelet, a necklace, and a scarf all themed around the Foundation's trademark pink ribbon. All items can be purchased for a limited time in stores and online at www.christopherandbanks.com or www.cjbanks.com.
For each item sold, Christopher & Banks will donate 25% of the sales proceeds to the Foundation. "Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many women we know," said Via. "Wearing one of these special pieces is a way to pay tribute, a chance to show solidarity and strength, and a reminder to us all that the fight is not over."
