If you think $1 can’t make a difference, think again. Hire A Hubby has chipped in a whopping $500,000 for Aussie blokes battling prostate cancer, all thanks to a dollar-per-invoice program.
Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia CEO, Professor Jeff Dunn AO, urged Australians to support the ongoing campaign.
“This is grassroots giving at its best – a homegrown business backing Aussie men impacted by prostate cancer.
“Every 25 minutes one of our fathers or sons will hear the news he has prostate cancer. Alarmingly, it remains the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with life-shattering side-effects that can impact the whole family.
“This year 20,000 men will hear the news they have prostate cancer – I urge all Australians to get involved in making a difference by using Hire A Hubby to help us beat this disease,” he said.
The campaign kick-started in 2015, with over 300 franchisees nationwide sharing $1 from every invoice with the PCFA.
Hire A Hubby CEO, Brendan Green, said he hoped other Australian businesses would do the same.
“We began our journey with the PCFA in 2010 when it occurred to me that most of our Hubbies were at risk of prostate cancer.
“Many of our franchisees have been impacted, so partnering with PCFA has been a great way to give back and contribute to the big picture in the hope that we can beat it.
“We’re proud to be one of PCFA’s long-term partners, providing a community-based organisation with a secure stream of funding so that they can do the hard yards to keep up the research and support.
“The fight against cancer is a bit like home maintenance – as soon as you fix the light bulb you notice the leaky tap, and you have to keep chipping away at it.
“If you’re one of the blokes affected, having the experts on the job matters.
“We’re really proud of our affiliation and know that every dollar makes a difference,” he said.
