The Malouf Foundation has partnered with non-profit organization It’s a Penalty for its 2020 Super Bowl campaign to spread awareness of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Moving forward, the Malouf Foundation and It’s a Penalty will work together to promote their shared cause and increase their impact on a global scale.
“At the Malouf Foundation, we want to join forces with organizations that have a common objective,” said Jake Neeley, executive director for the Malouf Foundation. “We’re impressed with It’s a Penalty and their commitment to end human trafficking and exploitation, and together, we can make a bigger difference.”
For the past three years, It’s a Penalty has launched a Super Bowl campaign with its founding partner, A21, and alongside its supporting partners, like the American Hotel and Lodging Association, Hope for Freedom, N2GIVES, Uber, and now, the Malouf Foundation.
“We’re delighted that Malouf Foundation has joined It’s a Penalty for our Super Bowl campaign and beyond,” said It’s a Penalty CEO Sarah de Carvalho. “We believe this partnership will allow us to educate more people on human trafficking as well as help those caught in this tragic cycle.”
Following this year’s campaign, the Malouf Foundation and It’s a Penalty will collaborate on a variety of projects—from creative content to marketing materials to campaign delivery—to maintain a high level of impact.
The Malouf Foundation works with a number of organizations to fight child sexual exploitation and trafficking, including It’s a Penalty, Forever Young Foundation, Operation Underground Railroad and The Demand Project.
