It’s that time of the year again! November at CCM means another month of awareness as we join the Movember movement into tackling men’s health for the third consecutive year. Created in 2003, the organization focuses primarily on raising awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention among men. With a goal to reduce by 25% the number of premature deaths in men by 2030, Movember has already funded more than 1250 health projects around the world since its inception1.
During this year’s campaign, “Grow a Mo, Save a Bro”, CCM raised $715 through employee’s donation. And in the spirit of Giving Tuesday which took place earlier this week, CCM matched the donation for a $1,430 total contribution to the Movember Foundation on behalf of the firm and its employees.
Giving Tuesday is a global movement dedicated to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity with others that have helped thousands of people since its creation in 2012. In last year’s campaign, more than 150 countries participated in the movement and in the U.S. alone, 400 million dollars were raised online accounting for the donation of 3.6 million gifts2. Although this year’s campaign just ended this past Tuesday, the 2020 campaign has already started. For more information on how you can join and participate, visit https://www.givingtuesday.org/.
