Pink Hard Hats raise a lot of Green
For every employee that donated $20 to the cause, the company purchased a pink hard hat. In total, National Grid purchased 5,000 pink hard hats that employees have been wearing during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to show their support for a cure.
“You never know when that $1 you raise will be the $1 that makes a difference,” said Paul Sibley, manager of overhead infrastructure in central and western Massachusetts, who brought the fundraising idea to National Grid last year after seeing it at a lineman’s rodeo. “We recently celebrated my wife’s 5th year being cancer free. And when you found out how many people were interested in these hats – you see how many people are really affected by it.”
