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!!
