Bluesky is on a mission to amplify its long standing partnership with Samoa Cancer Society. 

In an effort to promote Samoa Cancer Society’s bi-annual fundraiser event Shave, Save or Dye It, Bluesky has made an upfront contribution of $2,500 for this event to be held on June 28th at Taumeasina Island Resort. 

Bluesky Samoa has also pledged to raise a total of $5,000 cash in addition to this contribution with Country Manager Alex Abraham leading the way and volunteering to have his head shaved at the June 28th event. 

Samoa Cancer Society continues to push its message around ‘Early Detection Saves Lives.’ 

As a nation resources to treat most forms of cancer during stage 3 and stage 4 including palliative care are not readily available locally, hence the focus of Samoa Cancer Society on its  ‘Vave’ campaign which encourages self-care and proactive check-ups so that early detection of any form of cancer is identified for a better chance of effective treatment. 

To raise funds for this cause, Bluesky is rallying internal support from its staff and next Thursday 21st June staff will be running a walkathon at 5pm on the seawall and inviting all to join this great cause.
