Blog Action Day

This proposal shocked me. Are we ready to donate a day’s earning to an environmental charity ?

      Hi Ignacio,

      I read it differently. Just on that day post something about the environment, that doesn't mean that you have to take the whole day off for that activity.

      As you don't take the whole day off to post on SDN. You can prep your post in advance and just release it on that day.

      If you do it here, post one about environment and SAP if you find an angle where our software is helping the environment we would love to hear about it. Post it on October 15 then.

      Curious, Mark.

      Yes Mark you are right, One day (October 15th) to blog about environment, this is the first way to get involved. The second one, it's to donate a day's earnings to a charity to show your support. I expect to blog that day, and I am begining to prepare the blog, but the second part is really a decision.
      Regards,
      Ignacio.

      Thank-you for sharing since I hadn't heard about this.
      I would assume though that if one wanted to donate 1/2 a day or 1/4 that would be accepted too. Any donation is always gladly accepted, no?

      Hi Gali,
      Sure, you can donate what you want, "One day" is a symbolic call to give a whole day to the proposal.
      Regards,
      Ignacio

      I found this document, It's a good starting point to get some ideas about a Software Company commitmment to Environment.
