Koss Corporation Partners With Music & Memory to Provide iPods and Headphones to Alzheimer Patients During #GivingTuesday

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2014) - Koss® Corporation (NASDAQ: KOSS), the U.S. based high-fidelity Stereophone manufacturer and inventor of the world's first SP3 Stereophone in 1958, announced a #GivingTuesday fundraising partnership with MUSIC & MEMORY.

#GivingTuesday, which takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (12/02/2014), was started in 2012 as a global day to kick off the holiday season of giving, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

This year, as part of its year-end fundraising campaign, Music & Memory, the non-profit that pairs dementia and Alzheimer's patients with personalized iPods, is launching its own #GivingTuesday initiative -- #GivingTunesDay. 

Music & Memory is partnering with Koss Stereophones, the maker of the headphones used in all 950 Music & Memory certified facilities, who has issued a challenge grant to support the #GivingTunesDay social media campaign.

"After seeing the documentary film 'Alive Inside,' about Music & Memory at the Milwaukee Film Festival this year I was struck," said Michael J. Koss, Jr., Director of Marketing, Koss Corporation. "It was incredible to see the effect the Music & Memory personalized music program had on those suffering from Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. I knew instantly that we needed to get even more involved."
