OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hayneedle, the online destination to find everything home, today announced the launch of its 2012 Gifts That Give Back holiday collection at hayneedle.com with the goal of delivering thousands of warm blankets to children in need in the United States.
For every purchase made from participating vendors in the Gifts That Give Back collection, Hayneedle will donate two blankets to be distributed by Children's Home Society of America (CHSA), a national non-profit whose national network of member agencies impact the lives of millions of children and families each year. Customers can shop the collection at http://www.hayneedle.com/giftsthatgiveback.
"We launched our first holiday giving campaign to support the CHSA last year in association with Pearl Mantels and provided 2,600 blankets to children in need," said Doug Nielsen, president and CEO, Hayneedle. "For 2012, we're very proud to expand the Gifts That Give Back collection with many other generous partners whose wonderful products will help us bring warmth and comfort to even more children through CHSA as the weather grows colder nationwide."
The hayneedle.com Gifts That Give Back collection offers gifts for the whole family -- kids, adults and even pets -- featuring fireplace mantels and shelves, beanbag chairs, kid's furniture, bounce houses, doll houses, rocking horses, pet carriers, and so much more. Hayneedle.com has assembled an array of brands to support this year's CHSA blanket donation. Participants include Pearl Mantels, Comfort Research, Guidecraft, Kid Kraft, Levels of Discovery, Lipper International, Mid America Outdoor, Radio Flyer, and Vortex Blast Zone.
"The CHSA is such an outstanding organization and the more awareness we can raise for them the better. Our hope is that the gift of soft, fuzzy blankets will bring warmth, comfort and security to the children," said Deirdre Wray, Pearl Mantels Corporation. "We were so pleased to have helped Hayneedle pioneer this important event and are thrilled to see how many new partners are on board. Pearl Mantels is honored to be part of the Gifts That Give Back collection and are looking forward to helping CHSA deliver even more blankets this winter."
"Children's Home Society of America is extremely grateful for the support that Hayneedle and its partners will provide from the 2012 Gifts That Give Back collection," said Sharon Osborne, Board of Directors Chair, Children's Home Society of America. "The blankets that were donated last year made an incredible difference in the lives of children all across the county. Given the recent hurricane, this year's effort will undoubtedly mean even more to our children and families."
CHSA agencies provide exceptional programs and services to support children in need and strengthen families. Core services include: adoption, early learning, foster care, family support, child and family counseling, parent education, and advocacy.
The hayneedle.com Gifts The Give Back holiday collection also features products from Hayneedle partners who give to other charitable causes throughout the year, including Woodstock Chimes, GAR Products, Badash, Ju Ju Be, Skip Hop and more.
