Breast Cancer Awareness

2011_mission-pink-success

As many of you already know October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is a something that affects the lives of many people in ways that are both measureable and unmeasurable. In recognition of this, Velodyne is running a promotion this month on our pink vPulse in-ear headphones. We are offering 2 pink vPulse for $50 on velodyne.com and 10% of the proceeds will be donated to a breast cancer charity.

Breast cancer affects many people in many different ways. It is true that about 1 in 8 American women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. It is also true that about 40,000 women will die from breast cancer just this year alone. Breast cancer research is of great importance to those affected, whether, victims, survivors or their families. Funds are required to support scientific research, whether it be to raise awareness about early detection and treatment options, prevention, risk reduction, and research into possible environmental contributors.

How can you help? Spread the word. Many band together to do breast cancer walks, which are as much about support and solidarity as raising funds for the cause. Be a good friend, spouse or child to someone you know that is affected. And, hope for the cure.

Join Velodyne in sponsoring a student at the Tumaini Junior School in Tanzania

All of us here at Velodyne consider ourselves truly fortunate to be living in Silicon Valley, a beautiful place overflowing with opportunity. One of the main reasons this area is ripe with possibility is because its inhabitants, hailing from all over the world, have been afforded the chance for a good education.

This is what made sponsorship of students at the Tumaini Junior School in Tanzania a natural choice when we were considering the best way to give back.

The United Republic of Tanzania, located in East Africa, has a population of 39 million. A limited budget and poor infrastructure make it a challenge to provide quality education to young children. Many students from the majority of government-sponsored schools aren’t provided with the resources and materials they need to succeed. This has produced a high rate of truancy and, subsequently, dropouts.

Some concerned citizens have founded private institutions in an attempt to help the situation for their local youth. Modest Bayo, a Tanzanian native and founder of the Tumaini Junior School in Karatu, is one of these citizens. He and his wife used their small home to set up the first formal class. It didn’t take long before this space was too small to fill the needs of their ever-increasing number of students, who were eager to learn. In 2005, Bayo built the first official classroom in his backyard.

Each year since 2005, Bayo expanded his classrooms to accommodate the demand for educations. Bayo says his main goal is to instill a healthy degree of self-confidence in each student.

The word tumaini means “hope.”  And that’s exactly what Bayo is giving back to his community. If you would like to help Bayo to fulfill his goals and live his motto, “strive for excellence,” then click here to sponsor a student at the Tumaini Junior School.
