GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE…by Christabelle
When I got my first job in New York City, as a PR Assistant, the Ann Taylor that shared space in the building I worked became my go-to-store for the essentials I needed to fill my new role with the big players. I have a soft spot for the company that fashioned me for my first interview, my first big corporate PR event and a number of “whoops I snagged my stocking right before the big meeting” dilemmas.  I was thrilled to learn every Fall, Ann Taylor offers the sale of ANN Cares Cards in all of the Company’s stores and on-line

The ANN Cares Card donates ninety percent (90%) of the purchase price of every card sold directly to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, an organization dedicated to funding valuable research to prevent and cure breast cancer in our lifetime. Those who purchase the $25 ANN Cares Card, which is available now through October 15, will receive 20% off every purchase of $100or more at Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor LOFT, Ann Taylor Factory, LOFT Outlet,, and through the end of October. In 2007, Ann Taylor donated over $1.3 million to the fight against breast cancer! Go AT – with our help…we can DOUBLE it this year!

During the month of October, Ann Taylor hosts Salute to Survivors Shopping Events in select markets across the country to celebrate breast cancer survivors and support Susan G. Komen for the Cure® The events feature special offers, live DJs, refreshments, and local survivors modeling Ann Taylor fashions. Attendees at the shopping events receive a 20% discount on in-store merchandise, with 5% of the proceeds benefiting local Affiliates of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Each participating store will make a guaranteed minimum donation of $1,000 to the local Komen Affiliate. Get your shopping ON at these events in your areas – especially the one on October 30 in NYC – I will be there with my credit card waving furiously through the air:
