During the month of November, better known as “Movember”, men across the country will be growing their facial hair out to raise awareness and spark conversation around men’s health issues. In honor of this month, Tommy John has partnered with the Testicular Cancer Foundation (TCF) to raise awareness of testicular cancer and funds for research. They have designed an exclusive collection of their iconic “No Adjustment Needed” underwear and socks featuring a mustache and ball print. The collection, which will be available while supplies last on the Tommy John website, will donate 5% of all proceeds to TCF. Additionally, Tommy John will donate $10 to TCF for every friend that is referred to TommyJohn.com in November, and give both parties a $20 credit!
“This partnership is a likely choice for Tommy John. Given the nature of our business we literally work on creating better support so why not translate that effort for a good cause that impacts us all?”, says Tom Patterson, Founder & CEO of Tommy John. “We want to draw attention to a serious issue using our unique approach and high-end products. Men need to feel both comfortable in their undergarments and in talking about testicular cancer.”
CONTEST: To expand the reach and wanting to build responsiveness among men to spur conversation, Tommy John is taking the partnership online with the “Share a pair, win a pair” Instagram contest. Share a photo of any pair of “balls” and tag @TommyJohnWear, @TesticularCancerFoundation and #SupportYourBalls for a chance to win a free pair of underwear or socks! Be sure to play nice! He will also donate $1.00 for every qualified entry, up to 1,000 entries.
Throughout the promotion, TommyJohn.com will host a dedicated page in honor of the “Support Your Balls” awareness campaign featuring the contest, exclusive collection and information on this issue.
Ladies, don’t you want to see your man in a pair of these? Men, don’t you want to show your lovely lady what you look like in these? 😉 Tommy John Support Your Balls exclusive products can be found online on their website.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER: Tom Patterson, a former medical salesman started in 2008, with no prior experience in the fashion industry. He found solutions for himself then shared it with the world!
