Grow & Give is a great way to engage your colleagues in November to come together and beard up for an important cause impacting one in seven men. Set up teams and enjoy some office rivalry while helping to end prostate cancer.
Early detection saves lives. The five-year survival rate of men who detected the disease early is nearly 100%. However, many men don’t go to their routine check-ups or talk to their doctors about their risks. So, we’re calling on all coworkers around the country to beard up this November and spread the word about prostate cancer.
This is a great idea for our team! How do we get involved?
Awesome! We’re excited to have you on board.
- Create a team page for your office.
- Invite your coworkers to join.
- Set-up a “casual Friday” to incentivize participation. (E.g. Make a donation and wear jeans on Friday).
- See how your team stacks up against other companies around the U.S.
- Share this campaign as part of your corporate social responsibility initiative.
Will my boss be interested? How should I bring it up at our staff meeting?
Great question! Pitching your boss on a new idea is no easy feat. So, we created a how-to-participate guide for teams and team leaders. Show your boss that not only does this fundraising go to a great cause, but it’s also easy, and great for building camaraderie and keeping employees engaged as the holidays approach. Get the Guide
This is cool. Can we get our product involved with Grow & Give?
ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer is a national 501(c)3 charity with the goal of ending prostate cancer. We aim to partner with national and local companies to increase awareness for prostate cancer while raising funds for research. For example, Traveler Beer Company is a Grow & Give partner helping to spread the word by featuring prostate cancer facts on drink coasters during November. If you’d like to partner with ZERO, please email Colony Brown (email@example.com).
Where does the money go?
ZERO puts every donation to good use. Funds raised through the Grow & Give campaign benefit prostate cancer research, patient programs, and awareness outreach. Together we’ve made a significant impact on the fight against the disease. More than 94 cents per dollar goes to programs and activities.
