Atlanta Woman-Owned Startup Lands Worldwide Contract with Susan G. Komen® Foundation
HALTZGLOVES is helping to “bring a Haltz to breast cancer” by creating a Pink Glove for the Susan G. Komen® Foundation

ATLANTA, GA – April 08, 2019 – Atlanta-based woman-owned startup HALTZGLOVES has been awarded the worldwide contract with the Susan G Komen® Foundation to produce the Pink Glove for Breast Cancer Awareness.

HALTZGLOVES CEO Deidre Goodwin chose “Bringing a HALTZ to Breast Cancer” as the Campaign Slogan for HALTZGLOVES.

It’s a cause that’s close to her own heart, and it is, in fact, Goodwin’s own personal story that led to this pivotal moment:

“My mom’s best friend passed away from breast cancer,” Goodwin explains.” My parents stepped in to assist with the care of her children. It is hard to believe that 20 years later we are still talking about breast cancer. Millions have been affected by breast cancer and I want to change that. I am so honored to know that we at HALTZGLOVES will have a part in finding a cure.” 

HALTZGLOVES’ international contract with the foundation comes with some daunting challenges with regards to manufacturing. The company is using a Georgia-based company to assist with the manufacturing process, and is making an appeal to the public for help with funding.

“We are pre-selling the Pink HALTZGLOVES on our website to help offset manufacturing,” says Goodwin. “We are also launching an Indiegogo campaign, which will offer thank-you gifts for early contributors to our campaign.”

Buyers can pre-order up to May 30th. Manufacturing of the Pink Glove will take 90 days. The product will be ready to ship in September, just in time for October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“HALTZGLOVES is creating a beautiful pink high-quality glove that is visible at night. So we can keep the world safe and ‘bring a HALTZ to breast cancer’. Last year millions around the world participated in walks and runs to support awareness and research to cure breast cancer, so we’re hoping that this year all of them will be wearing the pink HALTZGLOVES!”

HALTZGLOVES was originally created when Goodwin was almost struck by a car while directing traffic. Her original HALTZGLOVES can be seen for 1250 linear feet and are used by various police departments, crossing guards and others opting for safety when directing traffic or crowds.
