Day 7 of Hunger Action Month ~ Vanity Food and Fund Drive
Fashion women’s retailer Vanity and pop band OneRepublic are teaming up to help Feeding America (the nation’s largest hunger relief organization), and Second Harvest North Central Food Bank, to “Share the Secret About Hunger” to help feed the 49 million Americans who are in need of food. Our goal is to provide 100,000 meals through an in-store food drive and CD sales.
From Tuesday, September 7 – Saturday, October 16, 2010, customers can bring in food donations, which will be used locally to fight hunger and help strengthen our communities. With EVERY food item donated, they will receive a coupon for 25% off one regular priced item!
Customers also can purchase OneRepublic’s “Waking Up” CD, featuring a Vanity-exclusive live version of their latest hit “Secrets”. Each CD sold will provide 21 meals through Feeding America (Vanity will donate $3.09 to Feeding America for each CD sold). Customers who purchase the CD also will receive a coupon for 25% off one regular priced item. Customers can enter to win a chance to see OneRepublic live in concert, meet the band backstage, receive a $500 Vanity Shopping Spree and more! Other prizes include: an iPad, iPod Shuffle, autographed CDs and gift cards.
Customers can sign up in store, they can text “Secrets” to 82746, or they can register online at eVanity.com.
**Share the Secret update - So far the Grand Rapids Vanity Store has collected 1,428 lbs of food. Keep up the great work everyone!**
