QVC and Peace Love World Unite this #GivingTuesday to Give Back, Proceeds to Benefit Nest
WEST CHESTER, Pa. (November 15, 2016) – There’s no better gift than giving back. On Tuesday, November 29, QVC is celebrating the spirit of entrepreneurship and its charitable mission to support the success and wellness of women through the power of relationships as the first company to globally support #GivingTuesday. The video and ecommerce retailer will be offering a shirt created especially for QVC from Peace Love World, a line of inspirational women’s clothing. Sixty percent of the purchase price* of every shirt will benefit Nest, a global nonprofit committed to the social and economic advancement of women by supporting female artisans who might not have the resources they need to flourish.
“This Giving Tuesday, we are celebrating the women who embody the same tried and true spirit that we so value in our QVC entrepreneurs,” said Rachel Ungaro, vice president, fashion and beauty merchandising, QVC. “We are pleased to team up with Nest and Peace Love World, a budding, women-led enterprise spreading peace, love and happiness around the world, to support women as they forge their own futures and strengthen economies across the globe.”
To join the global celebration of generosity, shoppers can tune in to QVC or visit QVC.com and purchase the Peace Love World Give Love T-Shirt. Created especially for QVC, the shirt champions the universality of love by featuring the word in 16 different languages. In addition to the U.S., the shirt will also be available in QVC’s United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan and Italy markets. The proceeds from the purchase of the shirt contribute to the expansion of Nest’s remote learning center to reach 35,000 women; high-impact programming for six new artisan businesses in each of QVC’s six global markets; and leadership training and market immersion for six women business leaders.
“Nest is thrilled to receive the support of QVC this Giving Tuesday as we work towards our mission to empower artisan women in all corners of the world,” said Rebecca van Bergen, founder and executive director of Nest. “Our relationship with QVC demonstrates our shared commitment to creating increased economic opportunities for women by giving them access to the resources and training they need to succeed.”
Throughout the day, QVC will feature segments that highlight inspiring stories of those who have benefitted from the valuable resources provided by Nest. The creators of Nest and Peace Love World will also share how they made their respective passions a reality. QVC is asking shoppers to help spread the love by sharing a selfless selfie in the Peace Love World Give Love T-Shirt on social media by tagging QVC and using #GivingTuesday #unselfie.
November 29 also marks the launch of the full Peace Love World collection on QVC.com. The apparel line, which expresses positivity through powerful affirmations and imagery, blends luxury with coziness and includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, pants and more beginning at $29.50.
"I believe the journey of Peace Love World has molded me into the person I am today. I hope to give back by empowering women and helping them bring their passion to life, the way I have been able to,” said Alina Villasante, designer and founder of Peace Love World. “I strive to be an inspiration to my children and women throughout the world and show them dreams come true and hard work does pay off. QVC has provided me with the opportunity to inspire and share my message of peace, love and happiness with a large audience and I couldn’t have picked a better partner."
The Peace Love World Give Love T-Shirt will be available, while supplies last, through QVC.com, the QVC apps or by calling 800.345.1515.
