It doesn’t take a big effort to make a big difference. In fact, it doesn’t take any effort at all. The Daffodil Day Non-A-Thon is the first charity non-event of its type, where you can do absolutely nothing, to do something about cancer. That’s right - absolutely, positively nothing.
During August, Cancer Council calls on bosses across the country to give you an extra hour of free time off work to do anything you want.
We’ll be back next year and hope you’ll join us. If you want to pre-register your workplace to be part of the Non-A-Thon for 2013 just hit us up here with your deets.
Together we can all do nothing to do something about Cancer.
Didn’t get a chance to do the Non-A-Thon in 2012? Watch our vid and let Prof Allan McDougal tell you what it’s all about.
Not a lot separates the office hoverer from that mysterious mosquito you hear buzzing around your face at night. They’re both annoying, both unpredictable, and they both suck. Office hoverers are characterised by their inability to stay at their own desk and are most-often initially spotted in the reflection of your computer monitor.
Also known as the sad sack, the party pooper, or the fun police, the office pessimist can usually be identified by their scowl and the consistent shake of their head. Known to exhibit behaviour such as ‘worrying’, ‘doubting’ and ‘naysaying’, office pessimists can often be spotted at the water cooler... with their glass half empty.
Ego monsters are common in all workplaces. Distinguished by their trademark ‘sunglasses indoors’ look, these aggressively confident individuals can often be found surrounded by tragic underlings who carry their coffee but secretly despise them. Making up words every chance they get, Ego monsters are also characterised by their poor memory for names... especially yours.
Despite being fully aware of office policy regarding personal space, the office close talker still believes strongly in ‘intimate’ conversation. Known for their ability to induce frightened-turtle-like behaviour from colleagues, the close talker can either be found in their cubicle or within a few centimetres of your face.
Blessed with the ability to make even slippers sound like tap shoes, the loud walker is a common member of most offices. Lurking mostly in long echoing hallways, their deafening strut has been known to be heard over ACDC’s ‘Thunderstruck’... through noise-cancelling headphones... from the adjacent building.
