Anthropologie, the admired American lifestyle brand, is pleased to announce a Giving Tuesday initiative in support of arts education. On Tuesday, November 29th, Anthropologie will donate 100% of all candle proceeds, in-stores and online, to YoungArts, an organization that identifies exceptional young artists and invests in their lifelong creative freedom.

Last month, during their 30th Anniversary celebrations, Anthropologie announced the launch of their most significant philanthropic undertaking to date with a $1 million dollar commitment over the next four years to education and the arts. In its launch year, Anthropologie has chosen YoungArts as their leading charitable partner, and will improve access to careers in creative fields through financial donations, artist collaborations, customer fundraising, employee engagement, and mentorship opportunities.

“At Anthropologie, each day we are led by creativity, and the holiday season is when the true magic of our brand comes alive,” said Elizabeth Preis, Chief Marketing Officer at Anthropologie. “In the spirit of the season, we hope to inspire young artists to celebrate the true meaning of the holidays and spread joy through their own work and creativity. This Giving Tuesday, we are thrilled to support YoungArts, an organization committed to amplifying and investing in young artists – something so incredibly important to us here at Anthropologie”

In early October, Anthropologie announced a yearlong partnership with YoungArts to offer students career-altering opportunities to incite meaningful change through collaborative programming. Through the partnership, Anthropologie has committed to a donation of $250,000 to YoungArts, as well as an employee donation-match program. The Giving Tuesday activation will take place on Tuesday, November 29th in both the United States and Canada. Anthropologie, an established gift-giving destination, is widely known for their best-selling candle assortment, and sells more than 3.5 million candles each year globally.
