    Breast Cancer Awareness

    Big thumbs up to edugeek for supporting the awareness month.

    What specifically is the site doing to support it? And what would you like us to do to help?

    Hope you will be supporting Movember too!

    It is very good to see us a community supporting this month, maybe we should setup a donations site Online fundraising donations and ideas - JustGiving and see how much us Edugeekers can put together.

    That would be good. Can I also sneak in a mention for Keep Your Eye On The Ball - Home Page and Everyman - The Home of Prostate Cancer and Testicular Cancer- Home

    It's great - but there are many many health initiatives, so how does edugeek decide which one to support? Although in the interest of gender fairness, the prostrate and testicular cancer ones sounds a worthwhile cause

    lol admins had same chat as if we did it for this we would have to start doing it for others. Also prostrate cancer week already marked in sysmans calendar.

    As for giving donate page think that is a very good idea..

    Is prostrate cancer the one where you have to lie down a lot?

    I do Tacheback every year, and only just realised it has changed to November. Doh!!

    Last year I raised nearly £400. Great bit of fun, for a great cause.

    Good idea having a Just Giving page, I was also wondering if we could do something geeky, does anyone know if there are any cancer research distributed computing projects we could donate computer time to?
    I'm looking forward to seeing the superb creative talents of this site create a site logo supporting prostate and testicular cancer...

    I'm sure something could be stolen from the "Don't be a spanner, check your nuts" campaign :-)

    I noticed as soon as it went up too, but was too busy to comment. When I eventually got onto eduggek yesterday, I was surprised nobody had!
