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.
How should I bring it up to my boss or 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.
This is cool. Can we get our product involved?
Heck yeah! Email Shawn K. Supers (firstname.lastname@example.org) to chat with her about how your brand can go beast mode in the fight against prostate cancer. ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer is a bona-fide national 501(c)3 charity, and we partner with companies big and small to increase awareness while raising funds for research and patient support.
For example, Traveler Beer Company spread the word by featuring prostate cancer facts on drink coasters during November and recruiting restaurants across the U.S. to create teams. Zinburger's Pumpkin 'Stashe Shake is an annual tradition, rev share, and a tasty way to make a difference. Wahl Grooming uses its social media reach and product to help turbo-charge fundraising. The list goes on; take a look at our corporate partners page to get your creative juices flowing and see how your business can have an impact.
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 85 cents per dollar goes to programs and activities.
