WHAT’S THE COMMITMENT?
In 2013, the CEO of Naked Condoms, Jud Ireland, with the help of the Global Poverty Project, committed to provide two million condoms to Uganda, and 20% of all company profits to organizations furthering access to international family planning and global health initiatives.
WHAT’S THE IMPACT?
Jud Ireland said, “The nature of our business is already a good cause, and beyond this, It Takes Two is the focus of my vision for social responsibility at Naked Condoms. In addition to giving hundreds of thousands of condoms each year to family planning initiatives in low income nations such as Venezuela, my goal is for 50% of profits from Naked Condoms to go towards campaigning efforts furthering women’s empowerment and increasing access to family planning services and information for girls and women everywhere. This is where my heart and soul is and the story I really want to tell at Naked Condoms“.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Naked Condoms will continue supporting It Takes Two with a commitment of 20% of all profits for at least the next two years.
