Celebrities Donate for National Suit Drive

With 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.

Similarly, Soma Intimates announced its next ‘Giving is Beautiful’ Bra Donation. The nationwide charitable initiative to collect bras for women in need is stated to be the largest of its kind. (Read: Ladies, Do You Want to Donate Your Bra?)

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, VP of Corporate Giving at Men’s Wearhouse.

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.
