Hire A Hubby is doubling the dollar amount it contributes to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA).

Eight years ago the business launched a campaign for franchisees to donate $1 from every invoice to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. It has already raised close to $750,000 for the cause. 

Now the handyman franchise chain has raised the amount donated to $2 per invoice.

Hire A Hubby CEO, Brendan Green, said “Hire A Hubby has been a long-standing and proud partner of the PCFA, and that the franchise network was more motivated than ever to increase their efforts for the cause.” 

Prostate Cancer Foundation values Hire A Hubby’s support

PCFA CEO Anne Savage praised the network’s commitment.

“Hubbies make a remarkable contribution to our mission each year, raising significant awareness and funds. Above and beyond fundraising, their efforts go a long way to promoting prostate cancer awareness, getting the conversation started about early detection.”

Savage said the support is pivotal not just for life-saving research. The donations also help improve survival outcomes for the one in five Australians who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

“The doubling of this contribution is an incredible investment in the health of our community,” she said.

This year Hire A Hubby is campaigning for staff and franchisees to get checked for prostate cancer.

It will also continue to talk about prostate cancer in the hope of early detection and saving lives.
