How Your Company Can Get Involved (and a Kindle Touch Giveaway)
10/8/12 9:58 AM by adam
We get a lot of questions from people on how they can get the company they work for involved with Beards for Breast Cancer. So we thought we would share a way that a couple of companies are participating in Beards for Breast Cancer.
The company firsts starts by asking how many many men would like to participate by growing a beard. Once the participants have been determined, the company will then set the amount they will donate to the cause per person ($10, $20, $50, etc.). If the individual keeps the beard through the end of the month, the company will donate that amount to the cause for that individual. If the individual shaves the beard before the end of the month, the individual is responsible for donating the set amount.
At the end of the month, the company would then make one donation for everyone that participated. This is just one way that a company can get involved.
Now on to the giveaway. We have a Kindle Touch that we are giving away. To get a chance at winning the Kindle Touch, you must do the following three things:
