Charming Shoppes Inc is proud to honor Linda Rozell-Shannon of Niskayuna, New York for her efforts in serving her community. Ms. Rozell-Shannon is one of five finalists who are eligible to receive a $20,000 charitable grant to be used towards her organization, The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF), from Charming Shoppes' Voices.

One voice can lead to a chorus for change. Campaign. Ms. Rozell- Shannon will also receive a "Dream Come True" vacation for four during the Year of a Million Dreams celebration. Finalists will be featured on MONTEL on Friday, February 22nd, 2008 during the one-hour Voices Winner's Finale.

"I'm still in shock and can't believe it's true," said Rozell-Shannon. "I feel like I'm being inducted into some kind of Hall of Fame established by Charming Shoppes. It still hasn't completely sunk in yet, but it's an honor to be recognized by both, MONTEL and Charming Shoppes."

Voices is an annual campaign sponsored by Charming Shoppes that honors women across America for their passion, leadership and achievements as everyday women who raise their voice to create positive change.

Rozell-Shannon was selected from thousands of women from across the country who were nominated with essays describing the difference they have made in their communities. This year's nominations recognized women championing causes from natural disaster relief and medical research, to working with seniors and disabled persons.

Linda Rozell-Shannon started VBF 12 years ago after her daughter was diagnosed with a vascular tumor and realizing that there were no standards of care for vascular tumors and birthmarks. She decided to set up the VBF to assist families in finding appropriate medical treatment, and through her organization, Ms. Rozell-Shannon has successfully set up clinics across the nation and circulates numerous education publications.
