Seymour’s new e-commerce website, http://www.janeseymourhome.com/, sponsored the contest for all children aged 7-14. The winning design appears on the official Childhelp Pillow 2007, to be manufactured by Jane Seymour Home.
The pillow debuted in April during Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month on Jane Seymour’s site, at www.childhelp.org and in participating The Great Indoors retail stores. All proceeds from sales of the pillow will be donated to Childhelp, a leading national non-profit organizations dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. An accomplished artist and longtime Celebrity Ambassador for Childhelp, Jane Seymour believes in connecting her commercial endeavors to helping children in need.
“For the love of a child,” said Seymour, “we are creating hope through art.”
Childhelp’s Co-founders and Nobel Peace Prize Nominees Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson were on-hand for a launch reception in Los Angeles to announce the contest.
“We are so grateful to Jane and her enduring devotion to Childhelp’s mission, which is to meet the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of abused and neglected children. Her gifts for performance and art are matched only by her talent for giving to others, for which we thank her on behalf of the children in our care,” said O’Meara.
