breast_cancer_awarenessAt PagerDuty, we pride ourselves in supporting the everyday hero, so naturally, we take it upon ourselves to give back to the community. Each year, we’ve actively participated in Movember so this year we decided to unite together to support other causes that we are equally passionate about. One of our beloved employees is a breast cancer survivor so we wanted to rally around this cause by creating more awareness and help support those who are fighting back.

Last Wednesday we celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness Month by putting a spicy spin on our weekly Whiskey Wednesday tradition with pink bubbly and delicious cupcakes. To raise money for the cause, PagerDutonians purchased raffle things for awesome t-shirts and a custom bag. Some even played poker with all proceeds being donated to Breast Cancer charities.

We’re starting to ramp-up our social responsibility and looking for new ways to lend a helping hand. In addition to raising money for breast cancer charities, last Friday a group of us volunteered at a Habitat for Humanity site. Next month, we will celebrate Movember with a mustache-growing competition, and all money raised will go to the Movember Foundation. For the holidays, we plan on hosting another food drive for the SF-Marin County Food Bank. If you have any suggestions for more ways to help us give-back, please feel free to reach out!
