Most diseases like the common cold have telltale signs that prompt us to go to the doctor. But most life-threatening diseases don’t show such indications until its too late. That’s why the only option is to raise awareness about it and urge people to help those in need. No Shave November and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge are some of the best examples. And now Jeff Bezos has come up with a campaign of his own to shed some light on childhood cancer.
Jeff Bezos attended a company board meeting on Wednesday in his pajamas. And no, it’s not because he doesn’t have enough formal clothes. According to his Instagram post, it’s to raise awareness about childhood cancer.
You can read Jeff Bezos’ entire Instagram post here:
As mentioned by Jeff, people from around the world were showing up in their pajamas to work to stand in solidarity with kids who spend months and years in their pajamas while receiving medical treatment for cancer.
