LOS ANGELES, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Movember is right around the corner and the charity dedicated to changing the face of men's health is getting an extra boost from corporate partners to kick off the annual fundraising month.
Since inception, Movember has proudly welcomed more than five million supporters and has funded more than 1,250 innovative men's health projects across 20 countries in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. None of this would be possible without corporate partners who support Movember's work.
It's not often that a shave and groom company asks men to stop shaving, but this November Philips Norelco is asking men to put their razors down with one exception: to groom their growing Mos. The mission? To encourage guys to take a more active role in their health and motivate men to get educated on wellness priorities. This partnership with Movember® will entail co-branded product packaging at retail, a multi-million dollar digital campaign, a shaving kick-off media event, and a monetary and product donation of up to $550,000.
"Philips Norelco wants men to not only look their best, but also to feel their best both mentally and physically," said Brett Bardsley, Philips Norelco Marketing Director. "The brand's commitment to men goes beyond grooming. Our mission to improve the lives of men through purpose-oriented product development and meaningful innovation aligns perfectly with Movember's® mission to change the face of men's health and empower men to live happier, healthier and longer lives.
For the second year in a row, Pringles® is joining leading men's health charity, Movember, to drive more open conversations around men's mental health by expanding support in the U.S. – just in time for World Mental Health Day. Early this fall, Pringles donated $0.25 to Movember for each Party Stack Can that consumers purchased at Kroger. Together with Pringles lovers' help, the brand was able to raise a total of $150,000 for Movember. Later this Month, Mr. P will shave down his moustache to encourage Kellogg Employees and Pringles Fans alike to shave down in support of Movember. Whether or not fans have facial hair to shave, they can join the cause by grabbing a can of Pringles, gathering their friends and encouraging open discussion about mental health.
"We're proud that Pringles is partnering with Movember to support their critical work in the US. We can all play a role in advocating for mental wellness, particularly given the toll the last 18 months has taken on everyone. We plan to use Mr. P and his iconic moustache to raise awareness and funds for Movember, while engaging our employees and partners in real conversations about mental health, and how we can all reach out and support our family, friends and neighbors." Gareth Maguire, senior director of marketing for Pringles.
Movember will also be joined by the following businesses to continue to raise funds and awareness throughout the month.
