DOLE® Healthy Heroes, Assemble! is a nine-month, empowered-living initiative sponsored by fresh produce leader DOLE® and inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe to recruit and recognize everyday heroes in all walks of life and encourage them to continue their impactful leadership and passion projects in their homes, families, communities and in the world.
The program targets everyday heroes in four categories – mind, soul, heart, and home – during the recruitment campaigns featuring new, Marvel character-inspired recipes, original DOLE® Banana stickers and DOLE® Pineapple tags, digital downloads, in-store activations, and motivational prizes awarded to inspiring heroes at the end of each period.
DOLE® worked closely with Marvel to develop the program, which gets its inspiration from Marvel heroes’ exemplary traits that everyone can attain: Spider-Man is responsible; Iron Man is inventive; Ant-Man is small, but mighty; Black Panther is loyal; Black Widow is athletic; Groot is always eager to lend a helping hand.
In all, DOLE® will release 26 collectible, Marvel-themed banana sticker and pineapple tag designs in four waves through September.
Details and all program elements of DOLE® Healthy Heroes, Assemble!, including the contest, character recipes, digital downloads, dedicated social media campaign, and blogger partnerships, will be announced in the coming weeks and listed on www.dole.com/Disney.
