WEST CHESTER, Pa., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Jessica Simpson's love of shoes and shopping comes together for a great cause as she stars in both print and television public service announcements in support of the 16(th) annual QVC Presents "FFANY Shoes on Sale" breast cancer fundraising event. The live broadcast is scheduled to air Tuesday, October 13, 2009, from 7 PM - 10 PM (ET).

"She has the ability to reach audiences of all ages through her many talents and we know that she will serve as a wonderful advocate for this cause."

"Our public service announcements are a huge part of our annual outreach with QVC Presents 'FFANY Shoes on Sale'," said Joe Moore, FFANY's president and CEO. "We are so happy to have Jessica on board this year as the face of our campaign. Her passion and commitment will surely inspire others in the fight against breast cancer."
