The United States automotive industry is a critical component of economic growth with extensive interconnections across the industrial and cultural fabric of the U.S. It is one of the largest automotive markets in the world and historically has contributed 3 – 3.5% to the overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country.

The total employment impact of the auto parts industry in the United States is estimated to be over 4 million direct and indirect jobs.1 That means approximately 4.5 percent of all U.S. jobs are supported by the strong presence of the auto industry in the U.S. economy. People in these jobs collectively earn over $500 billion annually in compensation and generate more than $70 billion in tax revenues.2

People – in your community, neighborhood, on your street, and at your local car dealership – these people are the everyday drivers of the American economy and it is these people that AutoLeadStar has the honor to work with and serve.

Our approach has always been to help the people and businesses who power this crucial constituent of the US economy. Because when they do well, jobs are secure, communities are enriched, and economies flourish. Like any B2B worth its grit, we succeed when those we serve succeed.

This November, we wanted to put our money where our mouth was so we decided that AutoLeadStar will support a national campaign to raise funds and awareness for the dads, brothers, sons, and friends in our lives. We will be participating in Movember and trying to make a difference for men’s health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.

For the month of November 2018, AutoLeadStar will be donating 10% of the first month’s proceeds of all sales closed to the Movember Foundation (a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization). This means dealerships can help us raise awareness and funds as well. It also means some members of our global team, both in Israel and the United States, will be growing our moustaches in solidarity with the Movember Movement.

So heads up Dealers – that moustachioed salesman or saleswoman (!) walking into your dealership this month may be another hipster, but they may also be an AutoLeadStar team member looking to help your business, raise men’s health awareness, and power the US economy.

Movember: not just for men
