…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.
- Already in 2009 Craig Cmehil organized a 24h marathon on his Friday Morning Report web site/channel as a fundraising for MSF
- … which he repeated in 2010
- Also in 2009 the SAP Press book Practical Workflow for SAP (second Edition) came out, with all authors including the Workflow Goddess (sorry Sue, couldn’t resist) donating their royalties to MSF
- In 2012 this inspired the team that wrote the EIM book (Enterprise Information Management with SAP) to do the same. I’m sure it wasn’t a coincidence that Ginger Gatling was on both teams…
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 🙂 . 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 🙂 .
Thanks for reading, and please follow the link above.
