In the past couple of weeks, I’ve started a project through the Analysis Exchange working with Jason Thompson and charity:water. If you’re not familiar with the Analysis Exchange, it’s a program where aspiring web analysts and grizzled veterans* volunteer to provide analytics services to charities. Through the Analysis Exchange, charities are helped, students are mentored, and the World is a slightly better place than when the project was started.
But just because I’m volunteering my time doesn’t mean I can’t raise some money also. As we go into the holiday season, I’ve started a charity:water campaign:
Find out about the details at my fundraising website. As the weeks go by, I’ll be publishing a dashboard of the progress, with pictures of each of my runs for proof. I’ll also be including such embarrassing KPI’s as avg. time per mile, current weight, and anything else I think of.
I’m already in for 5 miles. There’s only 95 to go.
*Jason is the aspiring web analyst, and I’m the grizzled veteran. I think.
Update: After Day 1, already 27% of the way to $1000! I’ll start paying off the miles this weekend, but there’s still plenty more opportunity to contribute.
