As Heughligans, we strive to do good things with our Fandom. We regularly fundraise for leukaemia & lymphoma research (Bloodwise, a UK charity supported by Sam) and Youth Theatre Arts Scotland (for whom Sam is a patron). Now we are asking for your help (not your money) in supporting a charity which provides information and education about male cancers (testicular cancer, prostate cancer, and male breast cancer), Cahonas Scotland.
Cahonas Scotland “exists to educate the public in matters relating to male cancers, reducing discrimination and stigma.” Testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting young men aged 15-35. Testicular cancer is also one of the most treatable types of cancer if discovered early; and over 95% of men can be completely cured.
So, now you’re wondering how you can help. It’s simple! Cahonas Scotland is participating in Microsoft’s Upgrade Your World project. Microsoft will pick 5 charities and award them a grant of $50,000 (£32,000). You can cast your vote for Cahonas Scotland by logging into Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram and tweeting/posting the following:
