With just eight days left to donate, A-List celebrities are showing their support of Men’s Wearhouse’s fifth annual National Suit Drive to help unemployed Americans “suit up” for success.
Neil Patrick Harris, Hugh Jackman, Tyler Perry, Amanda Seyfried, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are among the stars who selected professional suits to inspire looks to be donated to National Suit Drive. Their generosity will help men in need transition back into the work force in each celebrity’s hometown.
To accompany their suit donations, celebrities wrote notes of encouragement to an unemployed man in need. Highlights include:
- TV star Neil Patrick Harris sent good wishes along with his donation, writing, “Congrats on the new duds. Suit up!” Harris donated a modern-fit suit, in line with his legendary “How I Met Your Mother” character, Barney Stinson.
*Actor, director and producer Tyler Perry helped unemployed men by donating a two-button gray suit with pink tie and wrote, “You can get this done!”
- “I love picking out ties,” said actress Amanda Seyfried, while she was styling a look to donate to National Suit Drive. Her words of encouragement: “You look great. Go get ’em.”
- Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson donated a suit and joked, “Wear this [suit] with clean underwear.”
“It’s commendable to have celebrities support the National Suit Drive,” said Steven Cook, Vice President of Corporate Giving at Men’s Wearhouse. “These stars are giving men in communities around America confidence by donating a suit, with the added benefit of personalizing the donation with their own words of encouragement. Our local community partners are hoping the celebrity-inspired looks will motivate their neighbors to clean out their closets and donate as well.”
Americans have until July 31 to help men in their local communities by donating gently used professional attire. Donations are accepted at more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores around the country. Men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes are accepted.
All donated garments are distributed to local nonprofit partners that prepare men and women to re-enter the job market through resume-building workshops, interview preparation, and skills training programs. For every suit donated, Men’s Wearhouse will give two business ties to the cause. As a thank-you for their generosity, Men’s Wearhouse will give donors a 50% off coupon for their next purchase of regular-priced merchandise (excluding shoes and Everyday Low Price items) and a tax receipt.
