SECAUCUS, N.J. (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
Leading global plus-size fashion brand Ashley Stewart believes that making a statement is more than wearing the fashion forward clothes. It's also about standing up as a voice for women and promoting sisterhood and community. On that note, Ashley Stewart is continuing their philanthropic efforts in the New Year by empowering its stores across the country to select and donate more than $22,000 back to their local communities. Five percent of all sale proceeds on Martin Luther King Day will go toward these charitable endeavors. In addition, in honor of Martin Luther King, Ashley Stewart is making a $10,000 contribution to the United Negro College Fund in order to fund two separate $5,000 scholarships for two deserving rising upperclassmen.
To help further build awareness, Ashley Stewart is launching a “Love Your Curves” tour with the first tour stop being Atlanta, Georgia over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. In Atlanta, the brand will host a model search on Thursday, January 15th, a sip & shop event on January 16th, and a fashion show on Saturday, January 17th. The Fashion Show will be the finale of the tour and also include the presentation of the $10,000 gift to the United Negro College Fund in honor of Martin Luther King’s dedication to education and to further his legacy with a new generation.
“Ashley Stewart is one of the most socially engaged retailers in the world, which helps explain the explosive growth we are achieving on our digital platforms. We are thrilled to be able to give back to causes near and dear to our customers’ hearts,” says James Rhee, Executive Chairman and CEO.
