The MAN STUFF products of Young Distribution, Inc. have been commanded for inclusion in the official gifting bag for the 32nd Annual Sports Emmy® Awards in NYC. MAN STUFF is an emerging brand of men's grooming products, Made in the U.S.A.

Off The Wall Gifts is the Official coordinator of gift bags for The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, providing thousands of gift bags for Emmy attendees. Val Wilson, Producer, sought out undiscovered emerging brands for this award season. "We were thrilled at the prospect of including Man Stuff in this year's gift bags. John Madden and Al Michaels will get a kick out of the Man Stuff product line."

MAN STUFF is a cooperative effort, born out of necessity between Roberta Young, Founder and CEO and her husband Grant. “My husband refused to use my “girly” lotion on his dry, cracked carpenter hands. He told me he needed a “ man’s” lotion. Something not smelly or greasy…”, and the idea was born! Using simple black and white packaging, and a light, manly scent, and fabulous logo art, we launched MAN LOTION in 2009. Our products contain no parabens, no petroleum by-products and no animal testing. In two years, we have grown into 4 men’s grooming products and counting! “We had a major illness hit our family in 2007. Necessity drove Grant to join me in running the business in 2007 and he never looked back!”

We worked hard to get all of the components and product Made in the USA. When you buy MAN STUFF products, we help to employ people in 8 states. Roberta’s background is product photography and marketing and they are both passionate about this product line. Young Distribution, Inc. is a Women Owned Business. The company and its owners reside in Shafer, MN a small community in the heart of the St. Croix River Valley.

Young Distribution, Inc. continually strives to bring quality, non-toxic, Made in the U.S.A products to market. Their consistent, excellent customer service and small business friendliness is making its mark on their continued customer base growth. A 513% increase in business last year really helped to promote their philosophy of “Keep your neighbor employed…buy American™.” “When we care about our neighbors, care about their well being, it lifts up the entire community.” Our customer base includes: Walgreens, H.E.B., Ace Hardware, Hy-Vee Drug, Brookshire Brothers and independent retailers.

The Emmys ceremony is being held on May 2, 2011 at Rose Hall, in Lincoln Center, New York City. NFL Legend Al Michaels will be receiving the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award this year. Each guest will be leaving with and Official Emmy Gift Bag filled with Man Stuff and other unique products, carefully selected by the producers at Off The Wall, Val and Mike Wilson.
