LIDDELL PARTNERS WITH BIC 4 GOOD TO SUPPORT DOSOMETHING.ORG
NEW YORK, Aug. 26 — BIC knows that it doesn’t take a lot to do a world of good. This summer, Ultimate Fighting Champion Chuck Liddell and BIC men’s razors–specifically the new BIC® Flex4™–will partner to support BIC 4 GOOD (http://www.bic4good.com) by shaving off Liddell’s signature Mohawk.
The BIC 4 GOOD initiative asks Americans to shave their head–for real or virtually–and in turn BIC will make a donation on their behalf to DoSomething.org, a not-for-profit organization that empowers youth to do good in their own communities. In celebration of the launch of the BIC Flex 4 shaver and the opportunity to support a great cause, BIC and Chuck are asking America to join the movement.
“It doesn’t take a lot to make a huge difference in the world, and I’m proud to be a part of BIC 4 GOOD’s humanitarian effort,” says Liddell. “By shaving off my own signature ‘do, I hope to inspire people to do the same for this important program.”
From April 15 through September 30 of this year, BIC will donate $444 to DoSomething for every video of a shaved head, $44for every photo of a shaved head, and $4 for every virtually shaved head. Already, do-gooders everywhere have raised over$45,000. With Chuck’s help, BIC hopes to push this number to reach the $60,000 fundraising goal for DoSomething.org.
If Chuck’s real life look is too extreme for you, the BIC 4 GOOD virtual shave lets you have an impact with just a headshot and a little imagination. To join the campaign, visit the program’s site at www.bic4good.com or visit www.facebook.com/bic4good for more information.
The BIC® Flex4™ disposable shaver for men has four flexible blades that individually adjust to your skin for an ultra smooth shave. This new shaver also features a pivoting head and heavy handle with a textured grip for superior control. The BIC Flex 4 shaver, which is BIC’s best shave for men, has a suggested retail price (SRP) of $5.99 for a three pack.
