HSN Launches Campaign To Promote Habitat For Humanity

HSN is doing good.

Earlier this week the network said that as construction continues on its sixth Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County home, its parent company, HSN Inc., launched a national month-long campaign in support of Habitat for Humanity International through HSNi Cares.

HSNi Cares partners with local, national and global organizations to engage our customers, employees and partners in our mission to empower women and help families in times of need.

Together, HSN, Ballard Designs, TravelSmith and Improvements will promote Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Customers from these brands will have the opportunity to make a donation in support of the campaign when making purchases online and over the phone throughout the month of June.

“A culture of generosity is at the heart of everything we do and our HSNi team is committed to giving back to its communities through impactful initiatives, like our annual Habitat for Humanity build,” our buddy Bill Brand, HSN’s president, said.

“We are thrilled to be able to grow our partnership with Habitat even more and take the passion that our employees have experienced during our local builds and apply it towards a national campaign that generates widespread awareness and funds in support of this organization.”

HSNi employees each receive two days of paid time off for community service annually. We don’t.

And company employees volunteer more than 26,000 hours in local communities each year. As part of the campaign, Ballard Designs, HSN, Improvements and TravelSmith will raise awareness and funds for Habitat among their customers.

Additionally, HSN has donated 5 percent of all purchases made on the HSN Credit Card on June 1 to Habitat for Humanity, up to $50,000.

“Habitat for Humanity is able to partner with low-income families in creating affordable housing due to the tremendous support of partners like HSN, Inc.,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “We are grateful to HSN, Ballard Designs, TravelSmith and Improvements for engaging their customers in support of our mission and the families Habitat serves.”
