Livestream Video: IHS Markit - Global St. Baldrick's Event
More than a decade ago, the first IHS Markit colleague shaved her head with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and told everyone she knew about her pledge to help take childhood back from cancer.
Inspired by her passion, more colleagues began to step up to the challenge to shave and raise funds for life-saving childhood cancer research. Within a few short years, colleagues around the globe were participating in the first global shave event.
The plan was simple, over the span of 24 hours, shave heads at IHS Markit offices around the world and tell everyone we know about it. It was the beginning of a new tradition, inspiring more than 100 colleagues to volunteer and shave.
Big hearts, big efforts and big giving! Our outstanding volunteers help to raise donations and shave, color, or cut their hair. Other colleagues volunteer to coordinate the shaving and fundraising events - giving their time and talents.
In May 2017, we surpassed the $3 MILLION mark in donations! To see one-third of the donations raised last year being donated to the women of IHS Markit who braved the shave is exceptional.
We can make a significant difference as a community when we work together. We call that #IHSMarkitLife.
Join us in our quest to Take Childhood Back from Cancer!
