“The holidays can be exceptionally hard for women who have no steady income,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. “Through this campaign, QVC is helping to raise funds and awareness for our mission at a time when it is needed most and is ultimately helping us get more women back to work.”
QVC is the global leader in video and e-Commerce and throughout the year participates in various initiatives to support the success and wellness of women through the power of relationships. QVC’s “Give Joy” campaign supports this mission by making charitable giving easy and joyful for their customers this holiday season.
