Generally we don't publicise our charitable donations - it is the right thing to do, and that is enough for us. Now, however, we are after all the exposure we can get.
This year I will be running the ING New York Marathon to raise funds for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. And anyone can show their support.
Given some recent events, we have again chosen a cancer charity. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has an excellent reputation - charity watch have them as one of their top rated charities (A rating) . With Fred's Team they also have a long association with running, which is popular pastime around the various WhereScape offices.
The marathon is November 6th, and we will be raising money up until mid October. I will personally be paying for all travel and accommodation to and from New York, as well as donating. WhereScape will also be donating - and we would also really like your help.
Giving is easy: we have just kicked off a fundraising page - please note that all donations are in US dollars. Scott Humphrey has also graciously said that we can be the official charity for this year's Pacific Northwest BI Summit. But you don't have to wait! This is just like voting - give early and give often.
Let's see what we can do.
