Seven years, over 175,000 beanies, and more than $6.2 million in funds given later, Love Your Melon is making its television debut with the TV ad campaign, “Warmth,” to raise awareness of its mission to fight childhood cancer.

“Our goal is to continue to share our mission with new audiences,” said Zachary Quinn, Love Your Melon’s President. “We are excited to see the impact this national TV ads campaign can make. Our video ‘Warmth’ encompasses our story and what it feels like to be a part of the Love Your Melon community.”

In addition to providing beanies to children battling cancer, Love Your Melon gives fifty percent of its net profits to the fight against childhood cancer, which goes towards funding groundbreaking research and creating therapeutic experiences for children and families battling cancer.

Love Your Melon chose to partner with Minneapolis-based Marketing Architects for its television debut because of the agency’s integrated model and focus on helping brands reach major milestones through TV. Marketing Architects handles campaign strategy, creative development and production, media placement and optimization, and performance attribution.

“Love Your Melon has such a noble mission; we are excited to be a part of telling their story,” said Chuck Hengel, CEO at Marketing Architects. “Television is a great opportunity to give Love Your Melon the necessary reach to accomplish their holiday goals and build the brand nationally.”
