Making a Difference One Shave and Tweet at a Time

Here’s a question for you: Did you know that in 2012 NetApp became a Platinum Level Sponsor of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a childhood cancer charity that funds pediatric cancer research, and since 2007 we’ve raised in excess of $3.4 million? That’s right! It’s something that we are proud of and looking to build upon in 2013.


Once again, we’re hosting dozens of shaving events around the globe to support the efforts of St. Baldrick’s. Our first event kicks off in the Big Apple (NYC) on March 7th and closes out May 9th in our nation’s capital Washington, DC. We can’t forget to mention the huge NetApp HQ event slotted for March 14th. Find an event near you here and while you're at it take a look at this amazing infographic, outline why we support St. Baldrick's.


In addition to the events, today we launch our second “Tweet to Fight Childhood Cancer” Twitter campaign, which was a huge success last year, donating nearly $1,500 to the St. Baldrick’s. Read below to learn how you can make a difference by simply tweeting.

We’re looking to mobilize our employees, customer, partners and others who care about fighting childhood cancers to contribute to St. Baldrick's through social media.
