ATLANTA, April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Sharpie® announces the launch of a new content series and special edition packs and markers in partnership with The Players' Tribune, the first-of-its-kind media company that provides athletes with a platform to connect directly with their fans by publishing their first-person stories. The series and each special edition pack showcases an elite athlete and the charity they support: Aaron Rodgers and the Wounded Warrior Project, Chris Paul and the Chris Paul Family Foundation, Alex Morgan and UNICEF Kid Power and Aaron Judge and #ICanHelp. Each pack features a picture of the athlete, their charity and includes a marker printed with the athlete's signature. The packs are available in four, five, eight, ten, 12 and 24 counts.

The partnership with The Players' Tribune supports a broader Sharpie campaign, Uncap the Possibilities, which demonstrates how a Sharpie Permanent Marker gives people the power to unleash their imaginations and express how they'd like the world to be. Through both powerful first-person video narratives and written articles, the athletes will describe how they have uncapped their possibilities through their personal journeys and the charities they support. The content will be released on The Players' Tribune throughout the year.

In addition to creating special edition packs, Sharpie is hosting a national promotion, giving fans the chance to win over 50,000 prizes instantly. Some of the prizes include autographed items, cash prizes, Rawlings merchandise, special edition Sharpie Permanent Markers, and a trip to New York City to meet baseball star Aaron Judge.

'Athletes have an incredible opportunity to positively influence their fans. We're proud to partner with The Players' Tribuneand support these four athletes in their endeavor to increase awareness of their individual causes,' says Jeff Rodenbaugh, Director of Sharpie Brand Activation for Newell Brands. 'We hope others are inspired by this partnership to uncap the possibilities and positively change the world.'

'The Players' Tribune is excited to partner with Sharpie and amplify their Uncap the Possibilities campaign,' says Jared Schoenfeld, Vice President Brand Partnerships, The Players' Tribune. 'Self-expression is core to both TPT and Sharpie, and this unique partnership connects their premium brand with four elite athletes to highlight their charitable initiatives that aim to better our society and create a positive impact. The Sharpie brand is endemic to sports and this is another great example of how TPT can collaborate with brands and connect them to consumers not only through authentic storytelling, but also to enhance their product offerings and creatively activate at retail.'
