Mahwah, NJ – dressbarn, who has been providing women a value priced destination for fashion and amazing gift giving ideas for decades, is partnering with the story preservation organization StoryCorps this Spring to celebrate mothers and stories of motherhood.
Visitors to the Tell Me a Story microsite (www.yourdressbarn.com/tellmeastory) are invited to share their most memorable Mom story, either written or in audio form, from now until May 11. The chosen winner will receive a trip for two to Chicago to record his or her special story in a StoryCorps booth, along with a $500 dressbarn gift card. To reinforce their mission of preserving history through storytelling, StoryCorps archives each recorded conversation in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
