We are SO proud to celebrate our third year partnering with NEDA, a non-profit that supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care. Aerie sponsors all NEDA walks across the country that raise funds for advocacy and educational programs and provide support for local communities.
We’re extra proud of #AerieREAL role model, Iskra Lawrence, who partners with the non-profit as a NEDA Ambassador. She attends walks throughout the year and shares her personal story about learning to accept her body and love her REAL self.
This year, we brought back our Limited-Edition NEDA Tee, and it’s going fast! Shop now and we’ll donate 100% of sales to NEDA. Earlier this month, we met our goal of donating $25,000 from Aerie and American Eagle Outfitters credit card sales to NEDA, and this Sunday 2.26 we’ll be matching all sales made at our SoHo pop-up in NYC (up to $10,000) in donations to NEDA.
“Aerie’s dedication to socially-responsible campaigns is inspiring,” said Claire Mysko, CEO of NEDA. “In a world where girls and women continue to struggle with negative feelings about their appearance, Aerie is creating needed change by celebrating diversity and promoting positive body image. We thank Aerie for their continued support of NEDA and their commitment to fostering strength and confidence in their customers.”
