Hilding Anders provides global support for the Pink Ribbon campaign

01.10.2010

Hilding Anders has become a global sponsor of the Pink Ribbon campaign. Through specially produced beds, bed mattresses and pillows, where a proportion of the sales price is passed on to the Pink Ribbon campaign, the Group wishes to contribute towards increasing awareness of breast cancer.

1 October signals the start of Hilding Anders’ initiative to support the Pink Ribbon campaign. Among other things, Hilding Anders has developed a bed mattress especially for the Pink Ribbon campaign. For every mattress sold, some of the income will be donated to research into breast cancer. The mattress is being sold by many of Hilding Anders’ retailers in Europe and Asia.

In the UK a pink bed has been produced, and in most markets the range is being supplemented by Pink Ribbon pillows.

“Our vision is to give the world a good night’s sleep. By supporting the Pink Ribbon campaign on a global scale, we hope to be able to contribute towards the world also being a little bit healthier,” says Anders Pålsson, President and CEO at Hilding Anders. “Good sleep has a positive effect on public health, and we want to try to get this message across through this campaign.”
