The Brawny® Brand Seeks Community Giants to Recognize and Support

The Brawny® Giants Initiative, which recognizes and provides support to individuals taking action, is asking consumers to nominate members of their community who are making a difference

ATLANTA, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever have been rising to the occasion and tackling life's challenges head on by taking action in their communities. Inspired by these stories, the Brawny® brand is launching The Brawny® Giants Initiative to recognize and support individuals across the country who are going out of their way to help others.

Over an eight-week period, the paper towel brand is asking consumers to nominate their friends, family members, and neighbors who are taking action and helping people whose lives have been affected by the novel COVID-19 pandemic for The Brawny® Giants Initiative. The Brawny® brand will recognize and support some of these individuals to help them continue the work they are doing. 

In a world full of talk, the Brawny® brand believes that strength lies in the action we take. The individuals the initiative is supporting are giants -- those who take matters into their own hands and tackle challenges head-on.

"These giants embody our brand purpose of insp­­iring others to overcome life's challenges with strength and resilience. The Brawny® team is proud to be able to support and help them keep doing their incredible work," said Katie Kolesky, Senior Director of Brand Building, Brawny®. "We know there are many giants out there, which is why we're asking consumers for their help to find more of these individuals. We want to know who in their communities has stepped up and could use support to be able to keep making a difference."
