Wear it Pink and other good causes

So it goes

October 29th 2010 was Wear It Pink Day where people could show their support for the Breast Cancer campaign by donning something pink and making a small donation. A large percentage of the office participated and showed their support.

This office adopted a broad definition of the word ‘pink’ (some of those clothes were decidedly purple or just plain off-white) but it was the thought that counted. For most people dressing in pink involved putting on a pink shirt, though for others bandanas featured prominently along with bracelets. No one said accessories didn’t count. All in all the office raised £50 of donations from staff which has been doubled by Web Applications UK bringing the total to £100. We want to send out a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who participated and showed their support for this worthy cause.

On a tangential note, Web Applications’ Rob Illing has decided to donate his face to raise awareness about prostate cancer. Donating his face in this case means growing a moustache through the entire month of Movember (formerly known as November). Rob has asked for individual sponsors to support his cause by donating to The Prostate Cancer Charity.
