In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and for the fourth consecutive year, Payless ShoeSource® has launched the Payless Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship Program in partnership with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF). Starting September 1, Payless will sell two limited-edition bracelet styles for $3 each—perfect for collecting and layering—and the retailer will donate $2.50 per each bracelet sold to establish scholarships to support the higher-education of Hispanic youth.
The Payless Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship Program gives customers a special opportunity to show their support for students in style with this on-trend affordable accessory that is charitable and designed to support this vital and valuable cause. This year’s exclusively designed wrap bracelets are available in two colors for the fall: teal and bronze. The bilingual bracelets are perfect for collecting and layering—the latest trend in arm jewelry. The tasteful design features inspirational words stenciled in both English and Spanish: Dream/Sonar, Believe/Creer, and Inspire/Inspirar.
“Payless ShoeSource is proud to partner once again with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund in its mission to make higher education more accessible to Hispanic youth,” said Gaby Alban, spokesperson for Payless. “We encourage people to buy the bracelets to stylishly show their support for this year’s Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship Program.”
Through last year’s Payless Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship program Payless was able to award 12 HSF scholarships to students from all over the country for the 2010-2011 academic year.
“We are pleased to have the continued support of Payless ShoeSource,” said Frank Alvarez, president and CEO of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. “The Payless Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship Program is a wonderful campaign that people can participate in to help ensure our promising Latino students have access to a college education. We encourage people to show their support with the bracelets as we strive to better educate the next generation of American Latinos.”
