American lifestyle brand Lands’ End has partnered with the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) as part of a fundraising initiative to support Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Through the month of September and until October 15, Lands’ End will donate 10 percent of net proceeds from the purchase of select items to PCF to help fund research and help educate men and their families about the risks of this common cancer as well as promote early detection. A minimum of $15,000 and a maximum of $20,000 will be donated.
“I believe in leading with purpose and keeping with the core values Lands’ End was founded upon—which is why we are honored to partner with the Prostate Cancer Foundation to bring awareness and empowerment to those affected,” said Federica Marchionni, CEO, Lands’ End. “Within our Lands’ End Meaningful Initiatives, we support the impactful work that PCF is providing and we hope to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those at risk, battling, or surviving prostate cancer.”
“Our ‘Step Up’ campaign this September focuses on the ways men can empower their families to stay healthy,” added Jonathan W. Simons, MD, president and CEO, Prostate Cancer Foundation. “The great corporations in the world have a strong sense of social responsibility for a greater good. Lands’ End is such a company, and we are proud that this corporation shares our commitment to saving lives.”
