NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE and Dress for Success Want You to Be a Part of Something Big

Program Gives Deserving Women the Chance to Reach Their Goals While Encouraging You to Save Money in the Process

GLENDALE, CA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE is teaming up with Dress for Success to give deserving women the tools they need to achieve financial independence. Dress for Success is a non-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools that will help them thrive in work and in life. By going beyond the clothes, Dress for Success helps disadvantaged women become more self-sufficient. And now, NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE is donating $50,000 to Dress for Success. But with a little help from you, we can reach our total goal of $150,000, as it is the smallest steps that can make a big difference!

A simple word of encouragement can give a person the confidence she needs to land a job and change her life. By visiting, you can send a Cup of Confidence note to help inspire a Dress for Success client. NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE will donate fifty cents to Dress to Success for every Cup of Confidence note sent. Your note will be given to a woman who visits Dress for Success for inspiration on how to thrive in work and in life. COFFEE MATE will donate an additional fifty cents when you share your Cup of Confidence note on Facebook or post a badge on other sites. Program ends 12/31/2009 or when total donation amount of $150,000 is reached, whichever occurs first. Limit one Cup of Confidence note per person, per email address. Visit for all details.
