Actress and designer Jaclyn Smith will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of her partnership with Kmart this year, and will be honoring the occasion by releasing a special collection of products with the proceeds benefiting breast cancer research.
Smith and the retailer have been collaborating on fashion and home collections for the last 25 years, and will be selling new limited edition pieces that will be easily identifiable by their small pink ribbons, the signature of the fight against breast cancer.
The special products will go on sale in September and will be sold through October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The company will be donating $1 from the purchase of every piece from the collection to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Their goal is to raise $100,000 total.
"I'm grateful that my relationship with Kmart has not only allowed me to provide great design at a truly affordable price, but also to work with incredible organizations like BCRF to give back to a cause that is working diligently in the fight against breast cancer," Smith said.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation has raised more than $287 million supporting breast cancer research since it was founded in 1993.
