Luxury goods brand Montblanc announced today a new and unique charitable partnership with Best Buddies International. Best Buddies is a global non-profit organization that creates opportunities for friendship, employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This is an excellent partnership with Montblanc, a brand who bears a long international heritage of social responsibility. Montblanc’s other national and international campaigns include “Signature for Good” with UNICEF and partnerships with Urban Arts Partnership and Jewelers for Children.

During March 2011, 11% of the proceeds from 11 Montblanc stores over an 11-day period will be donated directly to the Best Buddies organization.  These funds will help improve the lives of thousands of people in the United States and abroad.  The Montblanc boutiques participating in this campaign are Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Tampa, Chicago, Boston, New York City (Madison Avenue and Soho), King of Prussia, Houston, and Dallas.

Jan-Patrick Schmitz, President and CEO of Montblanc North America, explained the partnership:  “Montblanc has always believed in the importance of inclusion and having a secure life base, with friends and employment as the foundation of every individual.  We are proud to support Best Buddies, a unique organization that assists people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and educates others about their abilities. By actively supporting their program, we will make a positive difference in the lives of many.”

Launch events will be held at all participating stores on March 1, 2011.  Best Buddies supporters and friends of Montblanc include Anthony Kennedy Shriver (New York City), Becca Cason Thrash (Houston) and Katherine Schwarzenegger (Rodeo Drive).  The final contribution from all store proceeds will be presented at the Best Buddies Gala in Palm Beach on March 18th, 2011.

“I am thrilled that Montblanc has made a commitment to help improve the lives of our communities’ most vulnerable citizens – our friends with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” said Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Founder and Chairman of Best Buddies International. “I hope that their dedication to Best Buddies and our mission of inclusion will inspire others to follow suit, and commit to serve, as well.”
