John Legend and Misty Copeland Join Naked to Help Increase Access to Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Social shares of The Shopping Cart dance with #FillYourCartForGood trigger donations to communities in need

  • As a brand that believes everyone should be able to enjoy fruits and vegetables every day, Naked launches the 2018 Drink Good Do Good campaign.
  • For every Shopping Cart dance video, Boomerang or photo posted with #FillYourCartForGood on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, Naked will donate the monetary equivalent of a cart of produce to communities in need.
  • Naked partners with national nonprofit Wholesome Wave and like-minded ambassadors, John Legend and Misty Copeland, to raise awareness of the issue at hand and help increase access to affordable, quality, fresh fruits and vegetables.

Nearly 30 million Americans don’t have access to affordable, quality, fresh fruits and vegetables. This problem affects nearly one in 10 people across the country. Naked, along with like-minded ambassadors, including musician and activist John Legend and ballerina, author and icon Misty Copeland, is committed to raising awareness of this issue and helping increase access for those in need through its annual Drink Good Do Good campaign.

“Too many Americans don’t have access to fresh fruits and vegetables,” said John Legend. “And 60 percent of Americans don’t even know this problem exists in their own community.  I’m excited to join Naked to shed some light on the issue and help make a difference.”

This year, Naked is asking consumers to do The Shopping Cart dance — everyone’s favorite old-school dance move. For every Shopping Cart dance video, Boomerang or photo posted with #FillYourCartForGood on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, Naked will donate the monetary equivalent of a cart of produce worth $100 to communities in need.*

To launch the campaign, Naked is once again partnering with Wholesome Wave – a national nonprofit dedicated to making fruits and vegetables available to low-income families. Since 2015, Naked has donated more than $3,000,000 to Wholesome Wave, which has helped reach more than 300,000 underserved Americans each year, primarily through the Wholesome Wave SNAP Doubling Program.

This year, Naked is taking its partnership with Wholesome Wave to the next level by extending programming from farmers markets to the grocery aisles. They’re helping introduce the Wholesome Wave Rewards Card to empower even more low-income families to purchase fruits and veggies. Naked’s support is helping Wholesome Wave expand the program nationwide.

To join Naked, Wholesome Wave, John Legend and Misty Copeland as they help increase access to affordable, quality, fresh fruits and vegetables, post The Shopping Cart dance from Sept. 24 – Nov. 4 and, for each post, Naked will donate $100 to communities in need through Wholesome Wave.
