Hasn’t 2020 been one of the most difficult years to navigate? With the ever present and evolving situation presented by Covid-19 and the effects it has had on the country, both emotionally and financially. While our industry has been affected, we are still a very resilient bunch. I for one back us up to get through this with strength, our team is here to support throughout.
Speaking of support, Smits Group is once again joining up with Prostate Cancer Foundation NZ. Our position in regards to this charity and its cause remains the same. We believe it is vitally important to spread the message about the reality of Prostate Cancer in our country, what our guys can do to reduce their risk, to help raise funds for research and more importantly fund programs to help those impacted get the treatment they need and support for themselves and family.
We come to work every day and consider our health and safety within our businesses and jobs by looking at our surroundings, changing some of the products we use to safer substances. We think carefully about what is worn to do the job be it gloves, mask, overalls etc. and that’s fantastic. Outside of work we are practicing new and evolving layers of safety measures to keep our families and communities safe but what I want you all to also consider for your business, workmates and most of all your family and friends is to just go and get a simple PSA blood test. No swab up the nose or test up the bum, just a PSA blood test. That’s it – no biggie. Get in, get it done, job done and breathe.
The statistics remain high and the funding remains low when compared to other causes. We don’t wish to take away from other causes, but Prostate Cancer absolutely requires and deserves more support. We plan to continue to remind you and will focus our voice at strategic times to get the darned test!! During Blue September you will see ongoing and special programs to raise funds – events if we can but much online activity at the very least.
Don’t worry we will also be tipping in!
We launch our program again with Blue September. Through Smits Group we have selected several ‘blue’ lines that by simply purchasing what you would normally use will contribute to Blue September fund. Please look for the ribbon tabs onsite for selected lines. We also give you the opportunity to add $5 if you choose when you confirm your purchase.
Our aim has always been to keep strong and focused on the future so please do look after yourselves.
