The brand has been successfully marketing this premise, while benefiting children, through health and educational programs, sports and music, events and sponsorship including major partnerships with Beyonce Knowles and Michelle Obama's Let's Move! Move Your Body initiative, Nick Cannon and Celebrity High Magazine's Take Action Event benefiting L.A. Unified School District, Willow Smith Benefit Concert for Toys For Tots, and a soon to be announced initiative with New Orleans Saints' Marques Colston benefiting AMIKids, are just a few among the many.
