Los Angeles, CA, June 27, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- HeadBlade, Inc. announced today the release of three limited edition HeadBlades
based on their new MOTO head-shaving razor, which recently won a prestigious Red Dot 2017 Award out of Essen, Germany.
The new HeadBlade LE MOTOs pay tribute to military, fire and law enforcement personnel. Each Limited Edition MOTO has a distinct color combination differentiating it from the traditional yellow/black of all standard HeadBlades: LE Fire Dept. MOTO (red/black), LE Police Dept. MOTO (blue/black), LE Military MOTO (grey/black).
Todd Greene, Founder and President of HeadBlade, said, “Since coming up with the original HeadBlade in 1999 we’ve been involved with many charitable causes. These new LE MOTOs have specific color combos that allow us to pay proper tribute so that every time a LE MOTO user shaves their head, they’re reminded that we appreciate all they do to protect our freedom and way of life.”
To commemorate the new line-up, HeadBlade has partnered up with three non-profits and $1 of each Limited Edition MOTO purchase will go directly to the organization. Since HeadBlade produced 5,000 of each design a total of $5,000 will be donated to each organization.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation (http://tunnel2towers.org/) benefits from sales of the Limited Edition Fire Dept. MOTO. “The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is proud to be among those selected to partner with HeadBlade,” Andrew McClure, Marketing/Development Director said. “HeadBlade’s support of the men and women who wear the uniform to keep Americans safe is greatly appreciated.”
Sales of the Limited Edition Military MOTO will benefit the Travis Mills Foundation (https://www.travismills.org/). The Los Angeles Police Foundation (https://lapolicefoundation.org/) will receive $5,000 for the Limited Edition Police Dept. MOTO.
“At the Travis Mills Foundation, we always seek to align ourselves with partners who share our belief in veteran families. We are thankful to join forces with HeadBlade to support our servicemen and women on their road to a ‘new-normal’ in life after combat-injury. It is an honor to be a recipient of their generosity," said Brandy Mills, Donor Relations for the Travis Mills Foundation.
“The LAPF is proud to partner with HeadBlade as it launches its LE Police Dept. MOTO and is grateful for the support they are providing to our men and women in blue,” said Cecilia Glassman, Executive Director.
All Limited Edition MOTOs will be for sale exclusively at the company’s website (www.HeadBlade.com). This follows a recent contribution of over 10,000 units of standard HeadBlade MOTOs to Operation Gratitude, another non-profit focused on the military. Standard HeadBlade razors are available at Walgreens and CVS nationwide. Watch the HeadBlade TV ad see the razor in action
