In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Husqvarna is partnering with Men Against Breast Cancer in the fight against this deadly disease. Now in its fifth year, Husqvarna’s “Saws for a Cause” campaign will drive awareness and raise funds for the non-profit and its mission as a supporting organization for men whose families are affected by breast cancer.
Consumers in the U.S. and Canada can purchase limited-edition pink toy chainsaws from local Husqvarna dealers throughout the month of October. For every purchase of a pink toy chainsaw, while supplies last, Husqvarna and its partners will donate $3 (for up to $15,000), to Men Against Breast Cancer the first and only national 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to provide targeted support services that educate and empower men to be effective caregivers when cancer strikes.
“Husqvarna remains committed to supporting breast cancer awareness, and we are excited to partner with Men Against Breast Cancer this year to raise awareness about their mission and contribute to their cause,” said Michelle Sordi, Marketing Director for Husqvarna. “Their work serves an important role for caregivers, who are often overlooked in the conversation about this disease.”
“We are honored that Husqvarna has chosen to partner with MABC and continue their support and commitment in the fight against breast cancer. It is important for people to know that men play a vital role as a partner in survival side by side with the women they love as they battle and navigate this disease,” said Marc Heyison, President/Founder of Men Against Breast Cancer.
Additionally, Husqvarna is holding the 2017 Husqvarna Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway, where one randomly selected winner will receive a limited-edition pink 450 Rancher chainsaw and limited-edition pink toy chainsaw. The giveaway entry period runs from October 1 through November 15.
Consumers can find a local dealer to purchase the pink toy chainsaw with the Husqvarna Dealer Locator Tool.
