To mark the back-to-school season in the U.S. and Canada, a segment of Dorel Industries, Dorel Home’s CosmoLiving by Cosmopolitan brand, in partnership with Hearst, will donate $10,000 from its September furniture sales to She Runs It.  

The collaboration, “Furnish the Future,” will run until Sept. 30, and will help offset student loan debt for deserving female members who are pursuing programs in marketing, media and tech. As part of the campaign, Dorel Home (the home furnishings division of Dorel Industries) is also donating CosmoLiving by Cosmopolitan furniture to loan relief candidates throughout the remainder of the year.  

“After such a challenging 2020/2021 school year, it was important for us to put some positive energy into the world as several students head back to class,” says Claudia Grundman, senior director, global brand partnerships, Dorel Home. “That is why we’re so proud to partner with She Runs It, an organization dedicated to mentoring the next generation of women leaders. By helping relieve a portion of their student loan debt, we hope to contribute to the bright and successful future we know these women are destined for.”  

“She Runs It is tremendously proud to have donated close to $1 million over the past eight years to help relieve the burden of loan debt for more than 90 women,” says Lynn Branigan, president, chief executive officer, She Runs It. “This donation from Dorel Home’s CosmoLiving by Cosmopolitan and Hearst will help propel another rising star in marketing, media and tech to achieve her full potential, and the added gift of furniture adds a wonderful new dimension of support that we can provide to our loan relief recipients.” 

For its third anniversary, CosmoLiving by Cosmopolitan is debuting a back-to-school collection featuring modern-vintage desks, beds, sofas, coffee tables and home décor to create a workspace or home office.  

The Camila collection also includes a bookcase, console table, laptop desk, bar cabinet and coffee table sized to fit a small space like a home office or dorm room. 

CosmoLiving by Cosmopolitan’s collection is available at Wayfair.com, Amazon.com and other authorized retailers. 

CosmoLiving by Cosmopolitan was created through deals brokered by IMG, Cosmopolitan’s exclusive global licensing representative.
