Trucks for Change Network is appealing to the trucking industry and CTA member carriers to join the “Wear Plaid for Dad” campaign in support of Prostate Cancer Canada this Father’s Day.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men. Awareness, early detection, and medical research save lives, and your team’s contribution to Prostate Cancer Canada through the #Plaid For Dad campaign will help make a difference.
The Canadian trucking industry has been a national leader in participation and fundraising over the past two years, and Trucks For Change Network and Canadian Trucking Alliance are once again encouraging highway carriers and industry trades to get involved in this worthwhile cause.
Here are some quick and easy ideas to have some fun and make a difference on Friday June 15:
- Host “Plaid Friday”, with participating employees donating $5 or $10 each to the cause.
- Combine Plaid Friday with a raffle prize donated by your company for best Plaid outfit – event tickets and gift cards work great!
- Add a barbecue or pot luck lunch to your Plaid Friday workplace festivities.
- Prefer something a little more creative? How about a workplace baby photo contest (match the baby photo with the co-worker!), or a coin flip elimination draw (everybody flips together, those flipping different than the leader are eliminated, last flipper standing wins!).
You can register your own workplace donation portal by visiting www.plaidfordad.ca. Or if you prefer, you can make use the Trucks For Change Network portal at this link: Trucks 4 Plaid donation portal to deposit your workplace donations or to make individual tax deductible donations.
This Father’s Day, help make your workplace more “tightly knit” than ever by wearing Plaid for Dad!
