NEW YORK, NY (July 1, 2020) — In celebration of the continued reopening of its stores around the world, Tiffany & Co. launches the Tiffany Infinite Strength campaign, whereby 100% of the profits from sales globally of the Tiffany Infinity collection from July 1 through August 31 will be donated to CARE. Funds raised will support CARE’s mission, and in particular address financial resilience for the most vulnerable communities affected by COVID-19, particularly women and people of color, with a minimum commitment of $2M. Since its inception, Tiffany & Co. has been guided by the belief that a successful company has a responsibility to the greater community. Today more than ever, there is a need for communities to come together.
This campaign follows The Tiffany & Co. Foundation’s April 2020 commitment of $1M to COVID-19 related causes which support the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization and The New York Community Trust’s NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund. Today, we are proud to further our support of COVID-19 recovery with the Tiffany Infinite Strength campaign.
“With this campaign our customers can join Tiffany in spreading a message of strength and optimism,” said Anisa Kamadoli Costa, Chief Sustainability Officer, Tiffany & Co. “The Tiffany Infinite Strength campaign reflects our commitment to providing support for the most vulnerable communities affected by COVID-19, whose recovery is critical as the world begins to move forward.”
The Tiffany Infinity motif is a powerful symbol of infinite strength and optimism, and a timeless symbol of continual connection. All 37 styles in the Tiffany Infinity collection will be included in the Tiffany Infinite Strength campaign. Designs span bracelets, rings, earrings and pendants and will be available in white, yellow and rose gold, platinum and sterling silver, with select styles set with diamonds. Prices range from US $150 – $5,900. www.tiffany.com/sustainability/community/infinite-strength
