This is the seventh year that Dove Men+Care has been the title sponsor at the Dad 2.0 Summit conference, and they are a huge help to the dad community and this way, and many others.
Firstly, they sponsor a full barber shop at the conference where us dads can get pampered! It is fabulous! I grew my hair long purposely to have one of the artisan barbers in San Antonio make me look even more beautiful!
Literally, magic occurred:
And that wasn’t enough, Dove also provided massages for the attendees:
This is all in addition to the swag they gave us when we checked in, and the massive amount of products they shared with us at the end of the conference. Dove Men+Care took incredible care of all of us hard working dads who otherwise never get a break, plus I will smel good all year long thanks to the great array of products I managed to take home!
BUT, we are also here to talk about Dove Men+Care’s incredible initiatives in the fatherhood world: Dove Men+Care is championing paternity leave for dads everywhere:
Dove Men+Care is championing better paternity leave worldwide – as part of comprehensive, paid family leave – so that every expecting father has the chance to care for the people that matter most to him. Less than 1 in 5 men in the U.S. are offered any paid paternity leave, and most dads who do have it don’t believe they can take their full time off to care for a newborn. Research shows that when men have the opportunity to care for their children, everyone benefits: from communities and workplaces to the parents’ relationship. To overcome these barriers and make paid family leave for fathers more common, in 2019 we’ve launched the Pledge for Paternity Leave and Paternity Leave Fund.
This is incredible. Everyone must head to their site right now and take the pledge.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Dove Men_Care is doing even more: they have started a Paternity Leave Fund for new dads to get some financial assistance: The Paternity Leave Fund is a $1 million commitment to make paid paternity leave the new standard and support real dads who aren’t able to take meaningful time off during this important life moment. Tell all new and expecting dads to apply here.
I am grateful to what Dove Men+Care does for us dads by sponsoring the summit, and the pampering we get when we are there. And it is an honor to share with you all that they are doing for the dad community at large!
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post, but I did get to take home a large supply of Dove Men+Care products, some accused me of bringing an extra large suitcase for just that purpose, but as you can see, three generations of my family absolutely must have Dove Men+Care, from my son who cannot leave the house and go to school without their deodorant in his backpac, to my dad who was thrilled with the goodie bag he received from his favorite son for his 85th birthday, and me and my swag!
