Every year, Ardene partners with Starlight Children’s Foundation to support their cause by raising donations online and in-store, and we want to thank you for your incredible generosity! Despite unexpected temporary store closures, less shopping traffic and a difficult holiday season for many people, we raised over $278,000; even more than last year! It’s inspiring to see that even under challenging circumstances, we can pay it forward to help brighten the lives of those in need.
Inspired to Give Back Even More
Starlight works year-round to bring smiles to thousands of sick children and their families across Canada. This includes programs that provide fun rooms in hospitals, customized gowns and once-in-a-lifetime activity days, but the holidays are an especially important time of year. We proudly support and believe in their cause, so this year we offered customers an extra incentive to donate by hosting a shopping spree contest. We gave away $500 gift cards weekly for the duration of the contest, as well as a grand prize of $2000 in gift cards to one lucky winner. Every dollar donated was an automatic contest entry, and we are so happy to have been able to give back to our generous customers for giving back to Starlight.
Ardene also donated an additional $5,000 on Giving Tuesday; matching the customer donations received that day. Every dollar made a huge difference, so we appreciate all of your support and congratulate the lucky contest winners. We couldn’t do it without you, and we look forward to doing more good together in the coming year.
