As a second generation, family-owned business, Century 21's downtown flagship location has been the area's fashion anchor for over 50 years. The store was at the center of the 9/11 disaster and its reopening marked a pivotal point in the rebirth of lower Manhattan.

"The song 'Survivor Tree' is dedicated to the human spirit and to those who persevered through an act as horrific as that day," said Eddie Gindi, Co-Owner of Century 21 Department Store. "I wanted to find a way to share the song and use it to help those who suffered so grievously a loss and whose lives are still impacted by the tragedy. Tuesday's Children is dedicated to helping the victims of 9/11 heal and Century 21 is committed to supporting this worthy cause."

Terry Sears, Executive Director of Tuesday's Children, said, "We are honored to be partnering with Century 21 and working together on the 'Survivor Tree' song campaign. It's such a natural fit, given the iconic store was so greatly impacted on September 11th, 2001. Tuesday's Children is thrilled that Century 21 will be raising awareness and funds for our programs and services that support all of those impacted on that day."
