I get that it's a good cause, but this is off topic and doesn't belong on
If we allow everyone with a good cause to post to NANOG then we would be
inundated with charity emails.

>> A BT senior manager is donating half of his bonus to Action for Children’s Byte Night North West event and encouraging others to do the same.
>> Colin Johnston is an IT technical manager who has supported Action for Children for several years. This year he and hundreds of other executives will be sleeping out for a night on 6 October as part of the charity’s annual Byte Night event. As well as raising money by taking part in this, Colin has decided to also donate 50% of his bonus payment (£2,482.00 / 2 = £1241(donation amount)) this year to Action for Children.
>> Colin said, “Being involved for a while with Action for Children, I’ve got to know about the amazing work they do with children and young people and families. I’m happy to be in a position where I can help support their services by fundraising and donating. If people can’t take part in Byte Night then they can still help out by donating what they can – if other executives decided to also give half of their bonus to Action for Children, it would be a simple but really effective way of helping young people to have a brighter future.”
>> Byte Night is Action for Children's biggest annual fundraiser; a national ‘sleep-out’ event. Each year, hundreds of like-minded people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then Byte Night has grown to 10 UK locations and over 1,200 people slept out in 2016. Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 17 mass participation charity events and is the largest charity sleep-out having raised over £9.6 million since the first event. Byte Night is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and its fifth year in the North West.
>> Colin is a board member of the North West Byte Night event.
>> BT Volunteering is a very worthwhile endeavour.
