November 8, 2001 - - San Francisco, CA -- V-Day, the global movement to stop violence against women and girls, and Karen Neuburger, pajama and lifestyle designer, announced their marketing partnership to raise money to help stop violence against women and girls.
V-Day has joined forces with Karen Neuburger in a collaboration that will raise money through the sale of KN's V-Day pajama. Karen Neuburger's net proceeds from the sale of the V-Day pajama will be donated to V-Day to be distributed to non-profit, anti-violence groups including rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters. In addition, Karen Neuburger has signed on as a sponsor of the local 2002 V-Day San Francisco event, which is part of V-Day's Worldwide Campaign and will star, Eve Ensler, on February 12, 2002.
The pajamas were designed to give a global feel to this worldwide concern. The pattern features flowers and swirled script reading: Until the Violence Stops, in various languages including Spanish, French, Chinese, Hindi, Korean, Mandarin, Italian, Swedish, German and Indonesian.
Karen Neuburger V-Day pajamas will be available in sizes small to extra-large, and will sell for $62. The pajamas will be available at Nordstrom, Parisian, Dillard's, Macy's West and online at www.eziba.com/vday.
V-Day is a global movement to stop violence -- incest, rape, domestic battery, female genital mutilation, sexual slavery -- against women and girls. V-Day promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day helps these organizations to continue and to expand their core work, while generating broader attention for the fight to stop worldwide violence against women and girls. V-Day is also a day - on or around Valentine's Day in February - for which annual theatrical and artistic events are produced around the world to raise money and to transform consciousness. This annual cluster of events, campaigns, and initiatives (identified as V-Day 2001, V-Day 2002, etc.) include, but are not limited to, the College Campaign, the Worldwide Campaign and the International Stop Rape Contest. To date, Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" has been the centerpiece of these events, the biggest of which was the V-Day 2001 benefit performance at Madison Square Garden. V-Day is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Read more about V-Day at www.vday.org.
