Curate For A Cause: Joss & Main Unveils Celebrity Curators Benefitting Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation
BOSTON, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate giving back with style, Joss & Main, the revered online destination known for luxury home furnishing flash-sale events, has partnered with the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation (EBMRF) to launch their exclusive Curate for a Cause program. Orlando Bloom, Courteney Cox, Bridget Moynahan and Zoe Saldana have each signed on to curate a month-long home decor event. A portion of the proceeds from each item benefits EBMRF, a foundation dedicated to finding a cure and raising awareness about kids with this life-threatening skin disorder.
"We are delighted to work with EBMRF to support this important cause," said John Mulliken co-founder and General Manager of Joss & Main. "We are very grateful to the celebrities who have put their fame and creative skills to good use by curating this special collection of items."
The celebrity curators worked closely with the Joss & Main team to handpick pieces for their curated collections, which will showcase everything from casual-chic styles to high-end modern designs. In addition to their curated collections, each celebrity collaborated on the design of a limited-edition serving tray, showcasing their own personal style. Launching in November, just in time for holiday gift giving, the trays are perfect for entertaining, displaying decor, or breakfast in bed.
Celebrity quotes and hi-res images of their headshots and selections are available upon request.
