ATLANTA, November 09, 2018 — Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, is teaming up with the Movember Foundation to use its profile and wide reaching affiliate network to raise awareness for the issues that affect men’s mental health. During November, Scuf Gaming will also donate 10 percent of its website sales to the Movember Foundation when customers use the code “MOVEMBER” at purchase.
Scuf Gaming will put limited-edition, Movember-themed SCUF Impacts in the hands of partners and influencers to help create visibility and awareness for this cause. The specially designed Movember controllers feature the classic moustache silhouettes that have become synonymous with the Movember Foundation and men’s health awareness. Under the tagline “Share Your Frame of Mind” and via the hashtags “#MOVEMBER” and “#SCUFMO”, influencers and pro-gamers, including Ali-A, CouRage, and OpTic Gaming CEO Hector Rodriguez, will join the fight to bring awareness to these issues, showcasing the Movember-themed SCUF controllers and sharing the Movember Foundation’s message.
“Young adults and adolescents make up a large portion of the gaming community, and unfortunately, mental health issues among people in these age groups is rising and tends to go unrecognized,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and co-founder of Scuf Gaming. “As leaders in the gaming community, we are in a fortunate position to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental health concerns. We encourage all of our followers to support this campaign and those in need.”
The Movember Foundation is the leading global charity dedicated to changing the face of men’s health. Its annual campaign encourages men to grow moustaches in the month of November, and year-round they encourage the discussion of men’s health issues including, mental health, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and suicide prevention.
“Scuf has a global active community that can help bring light to these important issues,” said JC, Co-founder of Movember. “We are devoted to going to where our audience is, making sure men live happier, healthier, and longer lives. We’re excited to work with Scuf to create more awareness for this cause in a hugely passionate and powerful community.”
