In the month of December, we dedicated a percentage of sales to the Movember Foundation during our annual Charity Week.
Thanks to your continued patronage and support, we have donated a total of $23,850.00 for the Movember Foundation this holiday season. We appreciate your assistance in saving the lives of our brothers, fathers, partners, friends, and sons. Together, we can change the face of men's health.
In our 20 years with the charity program, we have donated to Make a Wish, the American Cancer Association, K9s for Warriors, the Humane Society, the American Diabetes Association, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, and many other causes close to our hearts.
As a family business, we believe that family is the greatest gift of all. That is why Allied Wire & Cable is giving back this holiday season, to support families like ours. During our National Charity Week in December, we will be dedicating a percentage of sales to assist the Movember Foundation and help spread awareness. Our fathers, partners, brothers, and friends are facing a health crisis, yet it’s rarely talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.
About the Movember Foundation
The Movember Foundation is the only global charity that is dedicated to all aspects of men’s health and well being. Their funds are used to deliver innovative, breakthrough research, and support programs that enable men to live happier, healthier, and longer lives. Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention are the key focus areas of the funds raised by the Movember Foundation. While they raise funds annually, they are globally recognized for their fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action during the month of November.
Founded in 2003, Movember has funded more than 1250 men’s health projects in more than 20 countries, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research, and transforming the way health services reach and support men. Using the mustache as the driving symbol for the movement, they host an annual Movember campaign in which people raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues.
When it comes to their health, too many men don’t talk, don’t take action, and die too young. By encouraging men to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis, and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Men are encouraged to attend annual check-ups, to be aware of a family history of cancer, and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
