Take Your Squishy to Work Day 2013...for Charity!
A Squishable is a many-talented beast. They bounce! They hug! They impersonate a fuzzy bowling ball! They...raise money for charity
? Yes, yes they do!
So...whatcha gonna do about it?
Wednesday, July 17
is Take Your Squishy to Work Day
! It's time to grab your Squishable and bring him into your office, classroom, or underground secret lair. Show him what you do all day while he's laying around the house, and while you're at it, take some pictures!
For each image you submit of your Squishable exploring the perils and excitement of your workplace, we'll donate a dollar
to Dress for Success
(*Up to $1,000 total)! And to thank you for caring, we'll also give everyone at your office or in your class a 10% off coupon
to use during the following week. Tell your coworkers! Tell your friends who own their own Squishies! Tell that cute girl or guy who lives down the road! The more pictures we get, the more we can help!
Oh yeah? Give me some details!
"The mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Founded in New York City in 1997, Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization offering services designed to help our clients find jobs and remain employed."
This is awesome! What should I do?
First of all, you can help make Take your Squishy to Work Day a success by getting the word to your nifty and attractive social network (after all, this totally beats your friend's recent Tweet about spaghetti). If you want, you can RSVP to our Facebook event
to let us know you're in!
Then you'll probably want to warn your coworkers about their upcoming Squishy visitor. Send an office-wide memo! Post it on your bulletin board! Graffiti it in the restroom (note, we do not advise you to graffiti it in the restroom). The more pictures they help you take, the more moolah goes to charity!
And while you're doing it, why don't you
with a hashtag of #squishywork2013
and we'll list them here!
Or you can post them to the Squishable Facebook page
so everyone can see how your day is going! Or post them on Instagram
, or Pinterest
with the tag #squishywork2013
Once you're done you'll have 48 hours to submit your pictures by emailing them, along with your name and the name of your company, to HugMe@Squishable.com
(we need that info to prevent cheating but it'll never be made public, promise)! As a thank you we'll send you our gratitude and a coupon you can pass around to everyone who helped you out! Wanna be the most popular gal or guy on the floor? This should do it.
