Van Bree, MHA, DrPH, president of Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital. “Words alone cannot express our gratitude for our partnership with ALEX AND ANI—there’s no question their support is having a tremendous impact on children and families.”

ALEX AND ANI has made it their mission to fully encompass partnerships, including utilizing Team (+) Impact, where employees of the brand will volunteer with the hospital during events such as the annual family picnic, Hasbro Children’s Hospital Radiothon, and many other collaborations where employees can fully understand the importance of the partnership and how vital the hospital’s efforts are to the community.

“As our first charitable partner, Hasbro Children’s Hospital holds such a special place in our hearts.”  Nicki Maher, SVP of Global Brand Relations at ALEX AND ANI said.  “Seeing the success we have already been able to accomplish together right at home in Rhode Island over the last 4 years, this opportunity to bring more awareness and fundraising through this design is something we’re all excited about.  Having the chance to see first-hand how many children and their families are supported and given hope truly makes this relationship such an important one.”
