Catherines, a chain of more than 300 specialty fashion stores for plus sized women, has been a proud supporter of the American Diabetes Association since 2009. Empowering Americans to prevent and manage diabetes is the goal initiative between the ADA and Catherines. In designated month(s) each year, along with sharing facts about diabetes in America, Catherines Associates ask customers if they wish to "Round Up" the cost of their purchases as a donation to the ADA. In addition, during November through December the company donates $5.00 for the sale of each specially designed t-shirt to support the ADA's mission. Over the past ten years, Catherines has raised more than $1,500,000 to support the ADA.
