Things have been quiet lately on the #SCN_EBS front, most likely because my competitor is now assisting a customer with a go-live.  So much for multitasking.

Meanwhile, in hopes of garnering more support for Doctors Without Borders, I hosted a small party this weekend.

Of course, there are so many things to celebrate!  The launch of the new book, Practical Workflow for SAP (v3).  My dog’s 5th birthday.  And the SCN Community Fundraiser for MSF has topped $12,000!

Just to get and keep your attention, here is a gratuitous picture of my dog trying to get at her cake:

(No doggies ate cakes as a result of taking this picture)

There are so many other reasons why this fundraiser is going to keep going, well past the month of August.  Will Ebola be wiped out within the next 6 days?  I don’t think so.  Here is one article I found which I thought was particularly compelling.  The quote from Emily Veltus of MSF, on returning Ebola patients to their homes:  “Each time we bring a survivor home, we hug the person in front of their family and friends to show they’re not a risk. And we like to get the family together and take a photo with them. We have a wall of survivors in our office.”

Wow.

Is it important to work to vaccinate against Cholera?  Yep.  Will it be over with in September?  Sorry, no.

MSF is also in the heart of the conflicts in Gaza and Iraq, and so many other places in the world, offering medical care to those in need.

So even if my cohort in the Epic Birthday Smackdown (and please notice, I am not naming him here, so he will not be distracted) is busy otherwise, the challenge to SAP Community Members goes on.

We Care.  We Gave.  We Inspire.

Let’s see what we can accomplish together!

Feel free to join the community challenge – either by donating directly using the link above, or by entering into the #sapcc.  Should you decide to enter the Community Challenge, you can then get other people in your social networks (or even in your real networks!) to support you and MSF.

Alas, no ice bucket challenges here.  Just a little smack talk when Greg gets his head above water.
