PrimaLoft® - The Luxury Down Alternative® and DOWNLITE®, America’s premiere manufacturer of luxury bedding, raised thousands of dollars in cash and product donations for domestic violence awareness through the Support Your Dreams campaign.
Support Your Dreams campaign activities were designed to support women and children making the transition into a new life away from the fear of domestic abuse. Donations were accepted during the month of October 2009 in observance of National Domestic Violence Awareness month.
PrimaLoft and DOWNLITE launched the campaign on October 1, with a donation of hundreds of PrimaLoft pillows to the Equinox Domestic Violence Shelter in Albany, New York and the Cincinnati YWCA Battered Women’s Shelter. These shelters were selected to partner in the Support Your Dreams campaign due to their significant involvement in PrimaLoft and DOWNLITE’s respective communities of Albany, New York and Mason, Ohio.
Thousands of dollars worth of nighttime items such as twin sheets and blankets, pajamas, robes, slippers and toys were donated to local shelters through the organizations’ Sweet Dreams donation drive conducted by DOWNLITE, PrimaLoft. and its Albany International Corp. colleagues in Albany, NY; Homer, NY; St. Stephen, SC; Menasha, WI; Kaukauna, WI; Cowansville, Quebec; and Perth, Ontario.
Additionally, a financial contribution of $2,000 will be made to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. These funds came from a portion of the proceeds of PrimaLoft bedding sold during the month of October on DOWNLITE and PrimaLoft’s commemorative ecommerce site, http://www.supportyourdreams.org.
“We are pleased to have partnered with such dedicated organizations to help raise awareness of domestic violence,” said Diane O’Connor, Marketing Manager, PrimaLoft. “We will continue to support this cause in hope of bringing some measure of comfort to individuals seeking safety from domestic abuse.”
