LANE BRYANT DARES YOU TO TAKE THE #IMNOANGEL CHALLENGE

COLUMBUS, OH, September 25, 2017 – Following the highly-publicized debut of the brand’s newest #ImNoAngel ad during the EMMYS, Lane Bryant is throwing out a major dare to all women: the #ImNoAngel Challenge, a charitible initiative benefiting I Am B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L™. I Am B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L is a non-profit dedicated to building self-esteem and leadership skills in young girls and women.

Starting today, Lane Bryant aims to inspire all women to show each other, and the next generation, what strong, beautiful women look like through the brand’s #ImNoAngel Challenge. Lane Bryant dares #ImNoAngel Challenge participants to join campaign stars actress Danielle Brooks and models Ashley Graham, Candice Huffine and Denise Bidot, in sharing their true essence and best self, through snaps shared on social media with the #ImNoAngel hashtag. Throughout the #ImNoAngel Challenge, Lane Bryant will raise donations for I Am B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L through iambeautiful.org, a dedicated link shared on LaneBryant.com and the brand’s social media pages. Donations received through February 28, 2018 will be matched up to $100,000 by Lane Bryant for the entirety of the campaign.

“We are extremely proud to partner with Lane Bryant in our quest to inspire girls and women to live a B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. life, which we define as Brave, Energetic, Assertive, Unique, Tenacious, Important, Fabulous, Unequaled and Loved!” said I Am B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L Co-Founders Dr. Zenobia Edwards and Dr. Tina Woodard.
“The #ImNoAngel Challenge seamlessly aligns with the mission of I Am B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L., and we look forward to supporting more girls and women in their endeavor to become stronger and more confident leaders.”
