GapKids launches “Forward with” campaign highlighting people who inspire kids through confidence, Focus, Creativity and kindness

NEW YORK, N.Y., 2017-Aug-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — GapKids is celebrating kids returning to the classroom with the “Forward with” campaign and short film series by highlighting the people who help shape kids’ futures. In partnership with global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), the final short in the series, ‘Forward with Kindness,’ is inspired by the studio’s eagerly anticipated feature film Wonder, and features star Jacob Tremblay and R.J. Palacio, author of the New York Times best seller from which the motion picture was adapted.

The GapKids ‘Forward with’ campaign is a celebration of progress. It’s about extending the idea of “dressing” beyond clothing to the traits and behaviors that will lead to kids’ success. It’s about preparing kids to advance their passions by giving them the confidence, encouragement, and support they need to go forward, and it’s about calling out some amazing parents, teachers and mentors who take the time every day to dress kids with courage, kindness and possibility.

“When you think about it, kids don’t actually go back to school, they go forward in their life,” said Gap chief marketing officer Craig Brommers. “The real-life stories that we are sharing through the video series are emotional, they are optimistic, and they are what Gap is all about.”

The campaign consists of four short films, each highlighting people who are helping advance children through positive reinforcements outside the traditional educational curriculum.

  • ‘Forward with Confidence’ features third grade teacher Jasmyn Wright who believes her students can be anything that they put their minds to and uses mantras to help build their confidence and equip them with the skills to approach any challenge with a positive mindset.
  • ‘Forward with Focus’ highlights meditation mentor Andres Gonzalez who has been breathing love and self-awareness into underserved communities as co-founder of the Holistic Life Foundation, a Baltimore based nonprofit organization committed to nurturing the wellness of children through yoga, mindfulness and self-care.
  • ‘Forward with Creativity’ puts the spotlight on art instructor Sasha Sicurella who encourages self-expression through art as the founding director of the I AM: International Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works globally to provide opportunities for children to explore their identity through art and self portrait photography.
  • ‘Forward with Kindness’ stars actor Jacob Tremblay, who plays Auggie Pullman in Lionsgate’s Wonder, and New York Times bestselling author R.J. Palacio. Wonder tells the heartwarming story of Auggie Pullman, a boy born with facial differences who can’t blend in because he was born to stand out, and teaches a classroom and community to move forward with kindness. The film opens in theaters on November 17 and features Academy Award® winner Julia Roberts and Oscar® nominee Owen Wilson. The short film draws upon the themes of acceptance, empathy and kindness in the classroom from Auggie’s inspiring story.

In addition to the short film series, GapKids is taking part in Lionsgate’s #ChooseKind movement leading up to the Wonder release in November.

Lionsgate, co-producer Walden Media, Random House Children’s Books, and GapKids are bringing the #ChooseKind movement to classrooms through the “Wonder Certified Kind Classroom” initiative, an educational program that focuses on teaching acts of kindness, acceptance, and inclusion to third through sixth grade students.

Part of this initiative includes the GapKids #ChooseKind T-Shirt Design Contest, where students will be challenged to create a visualization of what kindness and inclusion mean to them as a design activity. Eight winning designs will be produced and sold in select U.S. GapKids stores and Gap.com starting on November 13, World Kindness Day. All profits will benefit myFace and Children’s Craniofacial Association, two non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting children with craniofacial differences.

Lastly, 400 participating classrooms will be eligible for GapKids-sponsored private Wonder screenings featuring a Facebook Q&A with select cast from the film.

The “Forward with” campaign and short film series will be released throughout the month of August on Gap.com, the GapKids social channels and YouTube.com/Gap. The “Wonder Certified Kind Classroom” program will run from August 2017 through April 2018, and teachers can register to participate by visiting www.wonderkindclassroom.com.

7‑Eleven® and local police departments to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons to reward kids for good behavior

Local Police Departments will Receive Millions of FREE Slurpee Coupons To Reward Kids for Good Behavior

IRVING, TEXAS, 2017-Jun-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — This summer, thousands of local law enforcement officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee® justice to good kids across the U.S. For the 22nd year, 7‑Eleven® is working with police and sheriff’s departments to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons to children and youth through its popular Operation Chill® community-service program.

During 2017, 7‑Eleven will issue up to 1.33 million Slurpee coupons to almost 1,000 law enforcement agencies which, in turn, will distribute most of those during the summer months and back-to-school season.

“The Suffolk County Police Department’s partnership with 7‑Eleven’s Operation Chill®program is a unique way for our officers to engage with the youth in our county,” Suffolk County, New York, Police Commissioner Timothy D. Sini stated. “Interacting with our community’s children in positive ways is an important element of what our officers do daily. We appreciative 7‑Eleven’s commitment to providing an additional way for officers to make a positive impact and look forward to our eighth year  ‘ticketing’ young children and teens when caught doing acts of kindness.”

Big-city departments and small-town forces alike use the Slurpee coupons to enhance relationships with the young people of their cities by rewarding them for good deeds, constructive activities and acts of kindness. Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, deterring crime or participating in a community- or police-sponsored event. Although the reasons for being “ticketed” are varied, the end result is the same for every youngster: a free Slurpee drink and a smile for being a good kid. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee drink at participating 7‑Eleven stores.

Begun in Philadelphia to give law enforcement officers a positive reason to interact with children and teens, Operation Chill has expanded to cities across the country. Since the program’s inception in 1995, more than 19 million Operation Chill coupons have been distributed to hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the country in areas where 7‑Eleven operates stores.

“Year after year, Operation Chill is our most popular community service program,” said Mark Stinde, vice president of asset protection for 7‑Eleven. “Kids love Slurpee drinks, and police officers love having a reason to approach kids and surprise them with a Slurpee coupon as a reward for doing something good. And we, at 7‑Eleven, love helping them make those important connections in the community.”

7‑Eleven’s proprietary Slurpee semi-frozen carbonated beverage has generational appeal with slurpers both young and old. More than a half-million Slurpee drinks are purchased each day during the summer at 7‑Eleven stores across the country. This summer’s flavors include Chrome Cotton Candy and, for Slurpee Lite, sugar-free Watermelon Lime made with all natural flavors.

For the full 7‑Eleven, Inc. Operation Chill 2017 participation list, please contact media@7-11.com.

Free fruit for kids in over 800 Tesco stores across the UK

CHESHUNT, England, 2016-Aug-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tesco will offer children free fruit while their parents are shopping in store, as a ‘little help’ for kids to eat more healthily.

The initiative, which is being launched in over 800 Tesco stores across the UK, is aimed at creating healthy eating habits among kids that will stay with them as they grow up, and to make it easier for children to get the fruit and vegetables they need.

The Government recommends that children – like adults – eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. But research has shown that only 10% of boys and 7% of girls between the ages of 11 and 18 meet the 5-a-day recommendation. On average children in England eat only about three portions, with many eating fewer.

Participating stores will have a selection of fruits available including apples, soft citrus and bananas for parents to take to give to their children.

The move comes after Maria Simpson, a Tesco checkout colleague from a store in Lincolnshire, suggested giving free fruit to parents for their children to eat during shopping trips as an alternative to sweets. The idea was taken up by the store and was so well received by customers that Tesco decided to trial the initiative in Scotland to see how it might work on a bigger scale.

Matt Davies, Tesco CEO for UK and ROI said:
“We’re Britain’s biggest greengrocer, so we want to make it easier for parents to get their children eating more healthily.”

“As a Dad, I know it can be tricky getting children to eat their fruit and vegetables, so we’re hoping this initiative will help create healthy eating habits that will stay with children as they grow up.”

The initiative has been welcomed by health experts and charities.

Simon Gillespie, Chief Executive of the British Heart Foundation, said:
“A healthy diet can help reduce the risk of heart disease, the UK’s single biggest killer. It also prevents you from gaining weight, reducing your risk of Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.”

“It’s great to hear about Tesco’s new ‘Free Fruit for Kids’ initiative. It’s a positive step towards improving children’s health throughout the UK and helps parents ensure their children get their five portions of fruit and vegetables every day.”

“This initiative complements the work we’re doing with Tesco and Diabetes UK through our National Charity Partnership. Everyone should aim for a balanced diet and it’s really positive to see Tesco giving families a helping hand again.”

Helen Dickens, Diabetes UK Interim Director of Prevention of Type 2 diabetes, said:
“Eating fresh fruit is an important part of a healthy diet, and this exciting new initiative from Tesco will make it even easier for parents and children across the country to swap less healthy snacks for one of their five a day.”

“Unhealthy diets and being overweight can lead to serious health conditions like Type 2 diabetes which is largely preventable by eating well and getting active. We welcome Tesco’s ongoing commitment to making the healthy choice easier for all their customers.”

The initiative marks the latest step in Tesco’s drive to make it easier for colleagues and customers to eat more healthily.

  • In 2014 Tesco became the first major retailer to remove sweets and chocolates from its checkouts across all store formats, including smaller convenience stores.
  • In 2015 Tesco announced that all the children’s lunchbox-sized soft drinks it sells would have no added sugar in them which is on top of the four and a half billion calories and 1,400 tons of sugar it has already cut from its soft drinks range.
  • So far over one million children have visited farms, factories and Tesco stores to learn about where their food comes from and how to eat more healthily through Tesco’s Eat Happy project
  • Earlier this year, Tesco also launched its Perfectly Imperfect range of ‘wonky’ fruit and veg plus a new range of farm brands – helping customers find great tasting fresh food at affordable prices at Tesco stores.

Macy’s to help kids kick off the school year in high style

NEW YORK, 2016-Jul-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — This fall, Macy’s is helping kids kick off the school year in high style. With throwback 90’s looks ruling the runways, Macy’s is offering returning students a nod to old school trends, along with incredible savings on clothing, accessories and dorm items to make this year’s start to school the most anticipated yet.

“The excitement of heading back to school is punctuated by the art of back-to-school shopping,” said Cassandra Jones, Macy’s senior vice president – fashion. “Macy’s aims to make that the ultimate experience, offering the latest styles and trends in everything from the right outfit to the right dorm accessories, ensuring students can head back to class in style.”

Back-to-School Fashion
Junior girls channel the 90’s, sporting casual looks with plenty of attitude, inspired by the grunge style of plaid shirts, distressed denim and overalls. Denim in all silhouettes is bigger than ever this year, from dresses to shirts to wide-legged jeans. Paired with chunky platforms and booties, these iconic 90’s pieces get a fun and fresh update perfect for the classroom.

For young men, the 90’s comeback continues with denim styles from classic to distressed. Cuffed jeans are paired with high-top chukkas, which are given a trendy update with athletic soles. Tees with graphics of classic 90’s video games, TV shows and witty memes give the old school t-shirt and jeans uniform a modern and quirky bent.

The 90’s craze applies to fashion for kids, as well, but in a more scaled down version. Young girls sporting flannel dresses or cuffed denim will rock the halls, while boys in graphic throwback tees with gaming and skateboard images will rule the school in comfort.

Back-to-School Deals
Shoppers will have the best selections to choose from at Macy’s, the back-to-school destination for savings and style. Find all the go-tos they can’t live without—tops and tees, rompers and dresses, pants and jeans—even the true essentials like uniforms. Also, add in all the finishing touches—from hoodies, sweaters and jackets down to underwear, socks and shoes. Brands including Levi’s, Betsey Johnson, Benefit, Martha Stewart Whim, American Rag and Epic Threads have some of the best deals to match every kid’s preferred school day look. Visit your local Macy’s store and macys.com for savings throughout the season.

Dorm
Whether a first year away or packing it up for the last time, college living is cool and trendy with lifestyle essentials from Macy’s. Whim comforter sets in fresh new patterns offer options to fit each student’s personal living space. Studying is stylish with Poppin desk sets and accessories. Colorful letter trays and pencil pouches make organization fun. A Joy Mangano mini steamer is easy to store in a small dorm living space and keeps wrinkles away and helps show off new, flawless threads on campus.

Be Amazed by a Beautiful New Online Collection of Children’s Nursery Designs

Maze features a collection of children’s clothing, accessories, nursery furniture and toys from around the world. For the young and young-at-heart, these playful and design-savvy items are geared towards families looking to create a home with a sense of style – where aesthetic and design become kid-friendly.

Launching via New York City and Singapore, Maze is an international work of love, a real online boutique – there are no mass productions here. The products featured on Maze are eclectic and have been curated from across the globe, but they all have a common thread: each item has been chosen for its solid design, high quality, natural and environmentally-friendly workmanship, and moreover because there is something being given back to society through the creation or sale of the piece: jobs created, drinking water supplied, educational programs funded – things which, in today’s world and especially as parents, we are ever more conscious of.

Moreover, the idea of exposing children to good design, and having simple, high-quality designs created with children in mind is not often considered. With this collaboration, Maze aims to redefine the way we furnish, dress, and entertain our children. Look for whimsical European children’s wear, Scandinavian nursery furniture, colorful Japanese toys and more. But above all, look to Maze to curate the aesthetic of truly beautiful children’s design.

Exclusive to Maze in the US and Singapore, plush sheep from Hanns-Peter Krafft. Designed in 1982, these near impossible-to-find, handcrafted wooden sheep are made of real sheepskin, beech legs and leather ears. They are whimsical and highly sought after, evoking the “Mouton” designs of brilliant husband and wife design team Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne.

Trinkets and scarves from Nathalie Lete are inspired by vintage toys, pressed flower, old animal engravings, and Parisian folk works. Her work is colourful, naive and poetic, sometimes strange, to the point of tending towards art brut – but remains art for you and your little one.

From Swedish designer Margot Barolo’s line, Baby Barolo come down-filled papoose, comforter and socks to swaddle babies in snuggly clouds.

Knitted objets de l’art from Lucky Boy Sunday are beautiful and quirky – the perfect juxtaposition between childhood and hip parenthood create modern luxury in form of knitted art toys and soft furnishings.

Designed in Japan and produced on heritage looms in Lithuania, pieces from Yumiko Sekine’s Fog Linen Work line define today’s natural lifestyle trend in Japan. These linens blend in beautifully and now include a collection for toddlers.

After 5 years in the “Beaux-Arts” in Paris and a career in cinema Maud de Longevialle gives us a stunning and impeccably crafted collection in Leoca-Paris. Timeless elegance is delivered, and you will probably envy your little one’s closet.

“We do not inherit our planet from our parents, we borrow it from our children. – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry”. Modeled in the style of their popular adult line, components of Veja sneakers are both sustainable and organic. The construction process is socially conscious and creates good factory conditions for workers in both Brazil and France.

It was while she was thinking about her childhood memories that Japanese designer Kaz Shiomi had the inspiration for Kiko. This line of children’s toys are all made from wood and there, charm lies in simplicity. The brand has an authentic and artistic quality; reasonable prices, lively colours, and a slightly quirky touch that is quintessentially Japanese.

Hans Stockmar started with beekeeping products and beeswax candles in 1922. For over 50 years, Stockmar has been producing wax crayons that do not crumble, stick or smudge and are non-toxic. Maze will feature their signature wax crayon colors and watercolors – colorful and fun.

A huge transition happens when we create a child – our lives begin to move in a different direction and the focus shifts towards creating a welcoming and beautiful space for them. At the same time, we as adults have our own aesthetic and sensibilities. Can we coexist in design and find style that is youthful, playful, and fun for both? “Absolutely!” says Maze!

Maze launched online in New York in September 2013. The collection will expand internationally via Singapore by early February 2014

KidBed.co.uk Debuts New Look Website and Childrens Bed Range

KidBed.co.uk a UK bed and furniture retailer that specialises in childrens beds debuts a new look website and a new range of imaginative beds and bedroom furniture for those little treasures.

When Lee and Susan Ritchie had children, they quickly discovered that most stores had a very limited selection when it came to kids’ bedroom furniture. “I didn’t want my daughter’s room to be an advertisement for Disney or the TV networks,” she says.“So in 2010 my wife Susan and I started a company that offers a vast array of boys and girls beds & bedroom furniture and their coordinating accessories.”

Because KidBed.co.uk operates wholly online, Lee and his wife can stay home and nurture their 2 children while running their company.

After just over a year in business, it was time to overhaul the website. New developments in e-commerce have made shopping online a richer experience, and Lee wanted to offer customers at KidBed.co.uk all the advantages of social shopping as well as an easier and more convenient ordering process.

The new site allows customers to write reviews of products, report back on their customer service experiences, share favourite products with friends & family, get updates about new products through RSS feeds and track the progress of their orders. Visitors can also get decorating tips for kids’ rooms and read resource articles on topics like painting a nursery.

KidBed.co.uk sells a huge range of cheap childrens beds & furniture, including cabin beds, bunk beds, beds for teenagers, high sleepers and just plain old single beds. They also stock a wide range of branded furniture including Stompa, Julian Bowen and Cresta.

The Ritchie’s’ are eager to hear what both new and returning customers think of the redesigned website.
