LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kicking off the 2016 Movember Campaign, 18 brands have partnered with The Movember Foundation to help the Foundation have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health. The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men's health, with the annual Movember campaign being globally recognized for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action for their health.
All around the world, fathers, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn't being talked about. Men are dying too young, before their time and for no biological reason. To address this issue, since 2003 the Movember Foundation has empowered millions of men and women to join the global men's health movement raising more than $710 million and funding more than 1,200 breakthrough men's health projects in 21 countries for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
The support of partnerships continues to help drive the Movember Foundation's success by increasing visibility of the cause, raising critical funds through internal participation and marketing efforts, and creating remarkable experiences for the Movember community.
"We are thrilled to announce an all-star line-up of partner brands for this Movember. Their support is truly invaluable, and allows us to educate more people about the importance of men's health," said Erica Graham, Head of US Partnerships at the Movember Foundation. "Our 2016 partners share our vision for changing the face of men's health, and by working together we can help stop men dying too young."
This year, the Movember Foundation's Major Partners in the US include Jeep, Jameson Black Barrel, Sofar Sounds, and Visa Checkout. Supporting Partners are Garmin, Harry's, Headspace, Hoven Vision, Progressive, Richer Poorer and SKYN Condoms. In addition, Promotional Partners are BITE Beauty, Carbon38, Cobian, Dollar Beard Club, Fossil, Uppercut Deluxe, and Trumaker.
