Beard Up. Growing Wisdom Together.
The annual IT Beards charity competition returns for the sixth consecutive year, this time in support of the education of young minds.
In the month dedicated to men’s health, prevention and fight against prostate cancer, Scalefocus is holding its annual IT Beards charity campaign as part of the global Movember movement. The initiative aims not only to focus attention on men’s health, but also to use the positive energy to support a different cause each year.
In this edition of IT Beards, Scalefocus will be partnering with:
In Bulgaria: Teach for Bulgaria – the foundation that has been supporting teachers, developing and training school teams and building and introducing good practices in the education system for 13 years.
In North Macedonia: Донирај Kомпјутер – one of the most active organizations for the last few years, working hard towards providing computers for kids who cannot afford one.
In Türkiye: Participants from Turkiye can support a cause close to their heart and the amount donated will be reimbursed as points on the website of the campaign so they can use them to vote in the competition.
What is IT Beards?
IT Beards is an annual online charity photo contest where Scalefocus representatives compete with their beards and moustaches. By purchasing voting points on the initiative’s website, anyone can contribute to raising funds for the company’s chosen cause.
Each year, the main goal of the campaign is not only to donate, but also to give more publicity to the importance of preventive examinations in the month dedicated to men’s health.
Launched in 2018 as an internal initiative, IT Beards has partnered with various organizations over the years, with last year’s edition supporting premature children in Bulgaria, a school for blind children in North Macedonia, and several individual causes chosen by the company’s team in Türkiye.
Choosing Education For This Year’s Edition
Education and knowledge sharing have always occupied an important place in Scalefocus’ daily life, and this year’s cooperation with the “Teach for Bulgaria” foundation is a natural extension of the company’s work in the direction of supporting the education of young minds.
“As a team, we have always been highly socially engaged, and colleagues welcome any opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment around us – not only with our work, but also outside of it. Every year, colleagues participate with great enthusiasm in the IT Beards campaign – both by growing beards and by voting. Additional gamification and competitive elements help the good mood and the results come naturally. For yet another year, our entire team stands in support of the opportunity to provide a better education for our children.” – Tsvetelina Eremieva, Chief People Officer at Scalefocus.
So, this Movember stash away the razors and let the beards and moustaches grow!
