STELLA & DOT LAUNCHES AUTISM AWARENESS COLLECTION BENEFITING THE HOLLYROD FOUNDATION
San Francisco, CA (March 17, 2014) – Stella & Dot, a global social-selling fashion accessories brand, announces the launch of a capsule collection of signature accessories to support National Autism Awareness Month in April. For each piece purchased during the month of April, all net proceeds will benefit the HollyRod Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing compassionate care to those living with autism and their families. This is the second year in a row Stella & Dot has partnered with the HollyRod Foundation. The collection offers an assortment of accessories including a tote bag, a bracelet and more, all available for purchase on April 1, 2014.
“We are, once again, proud to partner with the HollyRod Foundation this April for Autism Awareness Month. This cause is near and dear to the hearts of so many members of the Stella & Dot community. Because we bring women together at our Trunk Shows, Stylists and customers who want to Host a Trunk Show in April during our Autism giving campaign, can take very a simple action to make a big impact. Not only will we help raise funds, but we also raise awareness,” said Jessica Herrin, Stella & Dot CEO and Founder.
“Last April, the funds generated from this collaboration helped to support various autism summer camps, social skills and adolescent prevocational programs around the country and in Canada,” said Holly Robinson Peete, HollyRod Foundation co-founder. “We were also able to grant more than 100 tablets to non-verbal children with autism giving them the "Gift of Voice". This year, the partnership will allow us to serve even more children and their families, as they navigate autism's day to day challenges.”
