Jockey International, Inc., is celebrating National Adoption Month and the five-year anniversary of Jockey Being Family, the brand's corporate citizenship initiative aimed at strengthening post-adoptive families, by increasing its financial support of post-adoption services.

This November, Jockey is donating one percent of all Jockey catalog and Jockey.com online sales, as well as 100 percent of sales from its Jockey Being Family Bear to the Debra Steigerwaldt Waller Foundation for Adoption, which funds post-adoption services for children and families. Consumers can help make a difference in the life of a family during National Adoption Month by making a purchase through the Jockey catalog or on Jockey.com.

"Adoption is a lifelong journey, but without post-adoption services many adoptive families are at risk to fail," said Debra Waller, Chairman and CEO of Jockey International, Inc. "Through Jockey Being Family, we strive to raise awareness of the need for post-adoption services to help ensure that families get a strong head start and become 'forever' families."

Since 2005, Jockey Being Family has supported post-adoption services through Jockey employee volunteerism and financial support to signature nonprofit partners, such as the North American Council on Adoptable Children, the Adoption Resources of Wisconsin, the Center for Adoption Support and Education, the Adoption Council of Canada and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Jockey recently partnered with the Dave Thomas Foundation to offer parents a new free resource booklet, called A Step-by-Step Guide to Post-Adoption. Jockey underwrote the costs of the guide, which defines the types of resources available for parents after an adoption is finalized.

Additionally, throughout the year Jockey Being Family sponsors fundraising initiatives, and donates $3 from each purchase of its Jockey Being Family Bear to support post-adoption services. Some of the program's initiatives include:

Home to Stay Backpack Program - Jockey employee volunteers compile personalized backpacks for children who were adopted, full of fun, age-specific items to call their own.

Comfort Crafters - Jockey employees and other volunteers create hand-made quilts and blankets for each child's backpack.

Jockey Being Family is Jockey International, Inc.'s corporate citizenship initiative that strengthens adoptive families for successful futures by providing access to quality post-adoption services. Our cause naturally reflects our company's values as a family-owned company, as well as our brand's dedication to outfitting individuals with the comfort and support they need to live their best lives. Since 2005, Jockey has donated more than $1.2 million dollars in financial and in-kind support to charities supporting post adoption services throughout the U.S.
