Dorm Essentials and Home Décor That Gives Back
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#backtoschool–H&M’s Buy Home, Give Home campaign, launching today, will allow
customers to give back with home purchases made at U.S. H&M locations
carrying the line and through hm.com. For every H&M Home item purchased
between August 4th and August 18th, the retailer will donate an item to
families in need, up to $165,000 worth of household product. The
donation is made to H&M’s non-profit partner K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers,
a charity that provides new merchandise to at-risk children, families,
and individuals through a network of 1000+ U.S. community partners,
offering hope, dignity and self-esteem.
“Families in need have limited budgets that usually must be spent on
essential items like food, rent or clothes. These donated items will
allow them to add some touches of flair and personality to their homes,
without having to choose between daily needs and a little comforting
style,” says Lisa Gurwitch, President and CEO of K.I.D.S./Fashion
Key home items in-store and online now include great décor essentials
that are perfect for the dorm and beyond! Bedding available includes
various colors of fitted sheets for single and double beds in 100%
cotton or linen and velvet cushion covers. Woven cotton body and hand
towel sets make for soft bathroom necessities and decorative items such
as picture frames, mirrors, rugs, and storage items are cozy finishing
touches to any living space. The collection ranges in price from $5.99
In conjunction with the campaign, H&M will be offering a 20% in-store
student discount on all home items with the presentation of a valid
