It’s that time of the year again…

…you know, when it’s time for reflection and making plans for next year. And that time of the year, when we tend to think a bit more about the people who aren’t as lucky as we and who need our support. And sadly, there are still a lot of them…

So when I noticed this tweet from Luke Marson :

I was curious and just ‘had to’ follow the link. Well, it brought me to a fundraising site for a more than worthy cause: Doctors without Borders (MSF). If you’ve been living under a rock never heard of them, check them out in this video:

From the fundraising web site:

Every day, Doctors Without Borders field staff provides urgent medical care to victims of armed conflict, brings emergency relief in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters and fights deadly epidemics. Your generous support helps make it possible.

This fundraising is an initiative of sap_mentor Susan Keohan , and doesn’t stand on its own: SCN members have a long tradition of raising money for Doctors without Borders:

So, with that little bit of history in mind, I think it’s time the scn_community as a whole gets involved in this fundraiser, and I ask of you:

Help Sue in her effort to raise $10,000 for Doctors without Borders and donate!

The scn_community is amazing, and I just know there are a lot of members waiting for an opportunity to contribute and make this world a little bit better πŸ™‚ . Well, this is your chance! With the 3 million of us, we can and will make it happen!

A big THANK YOU to those that already have contributed, and to all others: there’s still time πŸ™‚ .

Thanks for reading, and please follow the link above.

      Hi Luke,

      You *do* tweet important stuff! 
      Thanks Fred, for highlighting this cause.

      Thanks Tammy, for constant support.

      I hope that the Community can get behind Doctors without Borders and help out.

      FWIW, if people do not want me to thank them publicly (on Twitter πŸ™‚ ) they can use Anonymous.  I will respect their privacy/humility.

      I changed the URL to  and updated the former one to include comments to visit the one named 'SAPCommunity' because

      We are all in this together!

      Feel free to let me know if this works?

      I've also adapted the links in the blog itself, so there really is no excuse not to end up on the right web site πŸ™‚ .
