The annually held Movember event aims to create awareness for mens’ health issues and Progresif will be joining this global movement as they team up with local barbers to bring to the community, Buzzcuts for a Good Cause.
Buzzcuts for a Good Cause will be giving out free haircuts to charity bodies, such as Pusat Ehsan and YASKA, just to name a few, by collaborating with Snips Barbershop, Barberku.BN, and others to deliver the grooming services on behalf.
The first of the events has kick-started on Sunday, 1 November 2020 with Pusat Ehsan, where more than 20 people had their haircut done at Progresif HQ. The event proceeded last Sunday, 8 November 2020 at Community Development Centre, Kg Bolkiah gaining even more interest, where almost 50 people dropped by.
“We have received a lot of positive feedback on our collaboration and it’s great that we are able to bring this experience to the community and see what our local barbers have to offer in terms of the quality of their service,” said Hafiza Mohamad, Head of Brand Strategy at Progresif.
Eleazar Relex of Snips Barbershop has always wanted to find a way to be part of the community. “Fortunately, we were given the opportunity to collaborate with Progresif to commemorate the annual event. We are glad to be a part of the cause to raise awareness for mens’ health,” he said.
Progresif has always been passionate in giving back to the community through its One Percent Pledge campaign, and this act of giving back to the community taking the advantage of Movember movement is one of many initiatives run by Progresif through their CSR.
