Raising money for ovarian cancer!
Healthworks Head Office staff baked up a storm for our fundraising Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month morning tea.
Well, so it’s supposed to be an afternoon tea. But we had enough left over to last us well into the afternoon!
We love fundraising events like this. Not only do we feel that we’ve made a small difference through our donations, but they’re a great way to raise awareness of the issue in a way that’s personal, engaging and fun. Not to mention delicious.
The beauty of these national events is that most of the marketing is done for you. Most of these events have posters and emailers that you can download or tailor for your workplace. The key messages are sorted, the design is all done, all you need to do is distribute.
We had printed handouts of the symptoms to watch out for, which we could read and take home to our families.
Not to mention, from an employee engagement viewpoint, these get-togethers are a natural way to promote socialising between teams and divisions.
Employees come away feeling connected, rewarded and with that unique feel-good feeling that comes from giving.
