Have you thought about fundraising in your work place?
Pause 4 Parkinson’s is a great way for companies to support Parkinson’s research and a cause close to their employees heart.
You would be surprised how many of your peers have been touched by Parkinson’s. You almost certainly know someone who has, or will develop Parkinson’s. So why not have a conversation today with your workplace about how you can raise funds together for research? Help made a difference.
With 32 people diagnosed every day, this World Parkinson’s Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness and funds for this debilitating disease.
By throwing open the challenge to employees to identify ways their employer can contribute, we are noticing more innovative examples of corporate giving. Of course, direct donations and dollar matching programs remain key staples. However, at a time when the financial bottom line is under constant pressure, employees passionate about a particular cause are finding novel ways to harness their company’s non-financial resources.
There are so many ways your workplace could get involved, like sponsorship, or by simply bringing the team together for morning tea or sausage sizzle. There are so many opportunities for you and your business to support Shake It Up.
Additionally, as identified by many of our current supporters, given the prevalence of Parkinson’s in the community, this campaign gives your business the opportunity to support its employees who have family or friends touched by Parkinson’s.
We strongly encourage our sponsors and potential sponsors to host their own Pause 4 Parkinson’s event within their business; with their staff, customers, and even in the broader community to maximise your Pause 4 Parkinson’s experience. So why not organise a morning tea, wine night, bake off or sausage sizzle?
There are so many benefits to supporting Shake It Up. Your business can capitalise on an enhanced image and public awareness of your brand with various logo and branding opportunities throughout the campaign and associated media. So many ideas, and we can help you make it happen!
