Jodi Buell, whom is involved with the American Cancer Society PDX CANswer Project, noticed a Sharing Hope status update on Facebook about Mustache March at this years SXSW and shared some information about a similar event taking place in Portland, OR called March Man-ness Celebration. Can’t come to Austin or simply don’t enjoy travel and are in the Portland area? Grow a mustache (or grab a button, for the mustache impaired) and check it out!

Unifying all causes with the symbol of the mustache, “[...] because in the end, all our causes are connected”, the Mustache March is going on at this years SXSW and is put together by CauseCast for all people in the Austin area wanting to make a difference. Regardless of the cause you may support or ability to (or not to) grow facial hair (faux mustaches will be supplied) this is a chance for everyones movement to be supported equally.
The event begins at 4:30pm on March 19th, 2009 . We look forward to seeing you all there as causes of all kinds take to 6th street!

The Texas 4000, a group of current and former University of Texas students who make the remarkable bicycle ride from Texas to Alaska to fight and raise cancer awareness, donated $50,000 to the American Cancer Society’s Houston Hope Lodge. Please read the Daily Texan article for further details: http://www.dailytexanonline.com/1.1572346-1.1572346
Check out their Facebook page here to learn more about how they are Sharing Hope!
One last note, my name is Jesse. This marks my first post and first week interning for the American Cancer Society High Plains division in Austin, TX. I look forward to many comments, user contributions and many more blog posts this semester.

Technology expert Omar Gallaga counts SharingHope.tv as one of three charitable organizations best using technology to promote their cause. The great thing about SharingHope.tv, Omar says, is that instead of seeing a huge DONATE button, you see the faces of real people telling their stories. Listen to the broadcast at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=98600476 .
For more information on technology and giving, read the related post at NPR’s All Tech Considered Blog.

We are so appreciative when mainstream media outlets spread the news about SharingHope.tv, so we want to give a shout out to KXAN for their report which aired tonight at 5pm. David Scott’s piece did a great job of explaining how having access to individual stories about life with cancer spreads hope to those struggling with a recent diagnosis or undergoing treatment.

I really enjoyed meeting Omar L. Gallaga of the Austin American Statesman at SXSW this year. Since then, I’ve been a regular reader of his Digital Savant blog on Austin360.com, which helps bolster my tech knowledge tremendously. Now I can at least pretend to be a computer geek. : )
