Kendra's Philanthropy Wednesdays: Dress For Success
As I’ve mentioned before, the holidays are a time to indulge in the spirit of giving. One of the organizations that we generously support is the Dress For Success program. Founded in New York City in 1997, this non-profit organization helps over 50,000 women find jobs and learn how to dress successfully for the industry in which they are employed. Upon their first visit at a Dress For Success facility, each woman receives a suit and accessories, and they can continue coming back to build their professional wardrobe for as long as they are in the program.
Rachael Ray, also a huge supporter of this amazing program, earlier this year filmed a segment of her show at the Kendra Scott Austin Headquarters, where we pledged to donate one of our Hope Pendant Necklaces (left) and $7.50 for EVERY single item purchased online at Kendra Scott until we reach our goal of $25,000 in donations. (You can see a clip of the show here.)
This means for every item you order on our website, you essentially are donating $7.50 per item and a Hope Pendant Necklace to the Dress For Success program.
Keep this in mind as you place your orders for holiday gifts and goodies from the Kendra Scott website...remember that YOU are also helping women to find jobs and learn to dress successfully. Thank you so much for your support of Kendra Scott Jewelry and the Dress For Success Program!
