Heads Up! Fathead Becomes the Exclusive Retailer of Warren Buffett Big Heads

100% of Profits from Sales go to Detroit-based Charities Money Matters for Youth and Motor City Blight Busters

DETROIT, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fathead®, the leading brand of officially licensed sports, entertainment, custom decor and more, today announced the release of its new Warren Buffett Big Head cut out available only on Fathead.com.  Buffett's smiling Big Head made appearances on CNBC's Squawk Box and then NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers while Buffett, Chief Executive Officer of Berkshire Hathaway and Dan Gilbert, Founder and Chairman of Quicken Loans, and owner of Fathead, were promoting the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge with Yahoo Sports. 

Fathead Makes Warren Buffett a Big Head with 100% of Profits going to 2 Detroit-based Charities: Money Matters for Youth and Motor City Blight Busters

Seth Meyers, while revealing a Warren Buffett Big Head along with his own custom made Big Head, remarked, "I don't really know that much about what kids are into, but I think these are going to be very popular Fatheads."  Fathead is hoping so.  All of the profits from the Buffett Big Head will go to two Detroit non-profits: Money Matters for Youth and Motor City Blight Busters. Money Matters for Youth is a community organization that introduces young people to economics, budgeting, investing, and entrepreneurship. Motor City Blight Busters has been improving Detroit's neighborhoods for the past 26 years by demolishing blighted houses, securing abandoned buildings, and renovating suitable housing.

"After Seth Meyers held up the Warren Buffett Big Head on Late Night, our lines lit up with customers asking for the 'Buffett Big Head'", said Patrick McInnis, CEO of Fathead.  "Warren Buffett is well known as a founder of 'the giving pledge,' so we reached out and he graciously agreed, provided all the profits go to a couple of great Detroit non-profit organizations, which we are honored to do."  

"I was flattered, and frankly surprised, that anyone would want to purchase a Big Head with my face on it," said Warren Buffet, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. "Here's hoping the two Detroit-based organizations, Money Matters for Youth and Motor City Blight Busters will literally benefit from my Big Head!"

The Warren Buffett Big Head is available exclusively at Fathead.com for shipment worldwide, along with more than 600 licensed brands and thousands of Fathead graphic products from Disney, Nickelodeon, Star Wars, WWE, Marvel and DC along with the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and many more popular brands.
