I don't often veer off the strict marketing road here at OMB, but the fight against cancer is important to me and millions of people around the world (and maybe you, too).
I'm happy to announce that you - folks who care enough to read this blog, plus my family and friends - raised $300 to fight prostate and testicular cancer! Plus, my corporate team raised over $1,500!
Thanks to many folks, including fellow marketer David Mullen, I raised several hundred dollars to benefit a good cause. And I never could have done it without such a committed, wonderful group of readers of this blog. For that, I thank you.
I don't reflect very much on how this blog has affected my life, but it's times like these when I want to thank the whole OMB family - readers, visitors, and hard-core fanatics (both of you), alike. I sincerely, sincerely appreciate it.
If you missed the chance during "Movember," it's not too late. You can still donate to my MOvember page.
Or, if you'd like to make other year-end charitable gifts, here are two worthy groups BG and I support (both accept tax-deductible donations):
- New Leash On Life dog rescue: We volunteer with NLOL (heck, we've been fostering Izzy for a couple months), and strongly believe in protecting otherwise-homeless or euthanized dogs in Chicago. You can make a tax-deductible donation on their site.
- Open Books operates a community bookstore and provides community programs to promote literacy. They're a non-profit organization that actually does a lot of good for literacy (especially among children) in Chicago. You can donate here and make a real difference.
Thanks again for proving the quality of readership that this blog has. Your support - whether financial or just in spirit - made Movember a success and I can't thank you enough.
