The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has launched the new Trademarks for Humanity awards program to recognize brand owners who are harnessing the power of trademarks to help solve humanitarian challenges.

From individual entrepreneurs to large corporations, and educational and nonprofit organizations, brand owners who are passionate about humanitarian causes offer a wide variety of products and services that improve our lives and make the world a better place. This new awards program will recognize brand owners who are making such contributions and highlight the valuable role trademarks play in these efforts.
