Ansell said Monday that under a partnership with The Movember Foundation, a global charity focusing on men’s health, SKYN also will distribute 50,000 Movember edition sample packs at key events leading up to and during the month of November. In addition to its retail presence at 30,000-plus stores and events, Ansell will donate 50 cents per custom box sold to the Movember Foundation, up to $50,000.
“At LifeStyles, we share a passion for men’s health that naturally aligns with the efforts of the Movember Foundation,” stated Carol Carrozza, vice president of sales and marketing for North America at Ansell, which also makes the LifeStyles condoms. “By partnering with Movember and donating proceeds from sales of our special edition SKYN condom, we are pleased to promote and support men’s health, both in and out of the bedroom.”
The Movember Foundation invests in four key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. To date, the charity has raised more than $650 million dollars globally and funded over 1,000 men’s health programs in 21 countries.
“We are proud to partner with SKYN Condoms to raise funds and awareness for men’s health,” commented Mark Hedstrom, country director at Movember U.S. “With the support and the commitment of millions of community members, the Movember Foundation can continue our vital year-round work to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives.”
