Time to Get Our Pink On

As most of you are well aware, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  This month at Haband we started a number of activities to raise awareness and some donations for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation.

We kicked of the months activities at our main office in New Jersey.  We had a number of activities throughout the month starting by offering pink awareness bracelets for a donation and everyone  wearing one would be recognized as  supporters just by putting it on.

On Monday, 10/24, we organized a bake sale plus raffles every hour throughout the day.  We had a great turn out and you wouldn’t believe all of the baked goods we had!  Check out some pictures from the event to see some of the yummy foods we sold:




The end of the month wrapped up with one more mini bake sale plus a team picture where (just about) everyone wore pink. It’s a good thing that we all love our treats at Haband as they were the perfect way to raise donations.  I think the biggest treat of all though was seeing everyone pull together and raise money to support the fight against Breast Cancer.  All together, our employees contributed $1,666 of their own money! Then with some extra help from Haband to give us nice round number, our overall contribution for the cause was $2,000!  This money will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®Foundation through Jennie Marshall who participated in the 3-Day for the Cure Walk in Atlanta.

Great Job Team!!
