The retailer’s annual Give Pink, Get More campaign will benefit its two long-standing partners, the
Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Tutu Project
NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Bloomingdale’s today announces AQUA x Kerri Rosenthal, a special collection that serves as an addition to its annual Pink Campaign. The continuation of the retailer’s Give Pink, Get More initiative reinforces its long standing commitment to supporting breast cancer awareness. Over the past 18 years, Bloomingdale’s has raised over $17 million for both the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) and the Tutu Project.
The 46- piece AQUA x Kerri Rosenthal collection consists of a range of women’s and girl’s ready-to-wear, seasonal accessories, and home goods inspired by a painting Kerri created exclusively for Bloomingdale’s in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. Kerri’s daughter, Ali was diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 2022, making this collaboration and her personal connection to the cause even more special and sentimental. Now through 10/31, Bloomingdale’s will donate 10% of the purchase price of each piece of the collection to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (up to $25k). The original artwork, featuring the artist’s signature whimsy mood boosting prints, stripes, hearts, and more, will also be up for auction online through 10/12 to benefit Pink Aid.
“After the success of the previous Kerri Rosenthal collection, we are thrilled to be partnering with Kerri on another collaboration with such a meaningful connection,” said Frank Berman, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer at Bloomingdale’s. “The programming for our annual Give Pink, Get More campaign supports two incredible organizations that we’ve had the privilege of supporting for so many years, BCRF and the Tutu Project. We are honored to now layer in yet another element to the activity this season with the launch of AQUA X Kerri Rosenthal.”

Through years of partnership, Bloomingdale’s has provided funds to support BCRF’s goals in identifying new targets and developing new treatments for those diagnosed with breast cancer.
The Tutu Project, founded by Bob and Linda Carey, aims to bring cheer to breast cancer patients every day, through financial and emotional support.
