Since its inception, Tweezerman has maintained an essential Second Bottom Line program that shares profits with those in need. 2010 marked Tweezerman’s 30th anniversary and its ongoing dedication to numerous humanitarian, environmental, community, and charitable organizations.
As part of its milestone anniversary year, Tweezerman launched the 2010 Paw Print Mini Slant Tweezer and Matchbox Itty Bitty Files designs to support the Humane Society of the United States — the nation's largest animal protection organization, backed by 11million Americans. The Humane Society works to reduce suffering and improve the lives of all animals by advocating for better laws, investigating animal cruelty, encouraging corporations to adopt animal-friendly policies, conducting disaster relief and animal rescue, and providing direct care for thousands of animals. Proceeds of all sales were donated to this cause in the amount of $39,403.
Tweezerman also continued its passionate commitment to breast cancer awareness in 2010 by donating a portion of proceeds from the Precision In Pink Slant Tweezer initiative in the total amount of $642,475 to the following national and local Long Island Breast Cancer Charities:
• CancerCare (CEW Foundation), a resource for working women with cancer and their employers that provides counseling, resources, and educational assistance free of charges to anyone affected by cancer
• Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S.
• Beth Tortolani Foundation
• Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition
Looking ahead to spring 2011, Tweezerman has announced its partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation in launching the new Reach For The Stars Mini Slant Tweezer and Zip File. Starlight Children’s Foundation helps brighten the lives of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses through entertainment, education, and family activities.
The bright pink, youthful patterns adorning these tools are guaranteed to bring a smile to all who use them. To kick off this campaign, Tweezerman hosted its very first Great Escape family event for the tri-state Starlight division this past December where employees volunteered their time to face paint, feed, gift, and cheer up nearly 85 Starlight children and their family members. Tweezerman will be donating partial proceeds of sales of these products to support this cause.
Tweezerman has historically worked with many local causes through being a proud and longtime provider of support for local organizations like the Long Island Crisis Center and through initiatives such as Tweezerman’s annual Thanksgiving Basket Brigade and Christmas-time Holiday Spirit Campaign.
