As a business owner, you may be concentrated on improving your company’s practices, pleasing your customers, and helping your employees succeed. However, have you ever thought about giving back to your community? This month is breast cancer awareness, and raising funds is a great way to get involved. Working with your team to volunteer at local events and promoting community health can show your business truly cares about more than just making money.
Stuck on where to start? Here are some great ideas your office can participate in this month!
- Wear a breast cancer awareness ribbon pin for everyone to see. You can also arrange to wear jeans to work to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
- Hang a breast cancer awareness wreath on the front door of the building to show the community you support the campaign.
- Host an event such as a dinner or silent auction and collect donations for breast cancer research. It can even be pink themed!
You can also participate in a popular local walking and charity events to raise money for Breast Cancer. Here are some events coming up:
