Hauppauge, NY – October 2012 Eyewear industry leader ClearVision Optical teams with employees to “Think Pink” in an effort to raise awareness and support the global fight against breast cancer.
Emphasizing its philosophy of treating others as they wish to be treated, ClearVision encourages employees to help those in need whenever possible and give back to the community. It’s “Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness” campaign takes place the entire month of October with a variety of fundraising opportunities and special events.
“The fight against breast cancer is a cause we passionately support year round,” says “Jennifer Trakhtenberg, ClearVision’s Senior Talent Leader. “It hits close to home for us not only because of the high number of breast cancer cases on Long Island, but because we are a predominantly female-employed company. I don’t know of many other small businesses on Long Island that do as much as we do to support the cause.”
“Think Pink” events include:
All Month Long: ClearVision will match all employee donations in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
· Pink Penny Jar – Employees are encouraged to donate spare change through the end of October
· Pink Ribbon Pin Sales – Available for sale all month long. The small cost of these pins adds up quickly.
· Self-Exam Cards – Available all month. ClearVision prides itself on its employee health and wellness programs, and the Self-Exam Cards are an important piece of information everyone should have.
October 11, 2012: ClearVision holds its annual employee sunglass sale as part of the World Site Day Challenge. All proceeds are donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and matched by ClearVision.
October 21, 2012: Employees are encouraged to take part in the 2012 American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach, wearing specially designed ClearVision pink t-shirts. ClearVision is proud that many employees are among the 8 million cancer charity walkers across the country.
October 24, 2012: ClearVision Think Pink Spirit Day kicks off with a delicious brunch of pink-a-licious waffles. Employees are asked to wear pink, make donations and purchases, pick up a self-exam card and enjoy themselves!
Deeply rooted in the belief that everyone can make a positive difference in the world, ClearVision is proud to forge long-term relationships with various charitable organizations, including Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Long Island Cares, UCP Suffolk and others. It has been honored by Big Brothers and Sisters of Suffolk County, Long Island Cares, LI Harvest, Madonna Heights, Carol M.
