Employer Description: OddBalls is an underwear company that aims to raise awareness of Testicular Cancer. We care about your balls, and so should you! Below is more information on how we do it. Due to the success of OddBalls since May 2014, we have been able to set up The OddBalls Foundation (registered charity no 1164815). Through this we hope to make a difference to male health all around the world. The OddBalls Foundation only exists through the sale of OddBalls products and donations, so thank you! If you want to be part of it then get in touch.

100% of all money donated to the Foundation is used to raise awareness of Testicular Cancer. OddBalls as an underwear business covers all of the day to day running costs, so you can be sure that every penny that is raised for the Foundation is used to spread the awareness of Testicular Cancer and nothing else. This isn't something many charities can claim so we are proud to promote it.

To date, we have raised thousands of pounds! This money is being used to complete our first aim - fitting check yourself guides into male toilets and changing rooms across the country.
