HSN joins national fundraising campaign for Habitat for Humanity

As HSN breaks ground on its fourth Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County home this month, HSNi Cares, the philanthropic arm of HSN's parent company HSN Inc, is set to launch a national campaign June 1 in support of Habitat for Humanity International.

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 from June 1-30.

"At HSNi, we strive to create a culture of generosity, where creative people who are passionate about what they do have a way to give back, not only to our local community, but to causes that impact women and families everywhere," said Bill Brand, chief marketing and business development officer for HSN Inc. "We are excited to build on the strong partnership we forged with Habitat by introducing our first national campaign in support of the tremendous work the organization does with families worldwide."

As part of the campaign, on June 6, HSNi Cares and Improvements Cares will join forces for the first time and make a donation of $3 per item for select Improvements products sold on HSN. When customers purchase these items on their HSN credit card, the donation will be doubled to $6. Additionally, Ballard Designs and TravelSmith will work to raise awareness for Habitat among their customers and raise funds for the organization.

Contributions received in June will help Habitat continue to build, rehabilitate, repair and improve simple, decent homes in partnership with low-income families who are living in substandard conditions.

HSN employees each receive two days of paid time off for community service annually. Since 2010, employees have volunteered more than 2,000 hours to help build four houses for Habitat for Humanity.
