"Meathead Movers will work directly with the nonprofit to identify the abusive situations and provide moving services at no cost," a spokeswoman told LA Weekly. "Not only do these services help the victims of domestic abuse but they directly impact Meathead employees - consisting of predominantly young men who believe that real men don't hit women, real men help those in need."
The group has most recently partnered with the Good Shepherd Shelter to identify those victims that are in need of their services, which caused their good deed to go viral this month, but they've actually been quietly offering these types of services since 2001.
On their website, they explain that they will "absolutely" offer the same services to men who are victims of domestic violence, not just women. "Any victim, regardless of gender, is one too many, and we want to do what we can to support anyone in an untenable situation," the company explains in their FAQ section.
Their initiative has received so much attention from other businesses that the company has started a #MoveToEndDV challenge, where they are encouraging businesses and entrepreneurs to "get creative" to figure out ways their company can help victims of domestic violence.
We are proud to announce that Meathead Movers has officially launched the #MoveToEndDV challenge! We encourage businesses across the nation to make a pledge to #MoveToEndDV and then challenge fellow business owners and entrepreneurs to do the same! Let's get creative on how your business can help victims of domestic violence. Together, we can #MoveToEndDV once and for all! Learn more and make YOUR pledge at www.meatheadmovers.com/pledge/
