ARLINGTON, Va, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This November, NESTLÉ NESQUIK is teaming up with the Movember Foundation, the only global charity focused solely on men's health, to introduce the NESQUIK chocolate milk "QuikStache" campaign for fans to support the men in their lives and raise awareness of men's health. NESQUIK, a beloved brand by those young and old, believes that the proof of good nutrition is in the moustache left behind after enjoying a delicious NESQUIK and that the NESQUIK chocolate milk moustache serves as an opportunity to bring increased awareness to the mission of the Movember Foundation.
Over the past decade, the Movember Foundation has made the moustache an iconic image to generate awareness of men's health. The NESQUIK QuikStache introduces the fun chocolate milk moustache that moms, kids – and dads too – can get involved with to show their support. What was once traditionally for men, the QuikStache can now be worn by everyone in support of the men they care about and to celebrate this great cause. By joining forces with Movember, NESQUIK is encouraging fans of all ages and genders to make a NESQUIK chocolate milk moustache as part of this year's Movember initiatives. With a variety of NESQUIK flavors to choose from, there's a unique look and taste for everyone.
"The standing values and mission of the Movember Foundation are ones to be admired, and we at NESTLE and NESQUIK are big supporters of how the organization raises awareness for tough issues in a fun and community-driven way," said Melanie Zachar, NESQUIK Marketing Manager. "This year, we wanted to celebrate Movember and introduce a new element of delicious creativity to the cause with the QuikStache to help drive additional discussion on this important topic and the importance of nutrition overall."
NESQUIK has pledged to match every $10 donation made to the Movember Foundation, on Movember's 10th birthday, at us.movember.com from 12:00 am EST on November 10, 2017 until 12:00 am EST on November 11, 2017, up to $50,000, in support of its mission to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives. NESQUIK varieties can be found at retail and convenience stores nationwide, and more information can be found by visiting www.Nesquik.com.
