As some of you know, our friend and colleague Mohan Pinisetti is currently undergoing treatment for leukemia. He has made it through the first round of treatment, less some weight and hair, and has been pronounced in remission! However, he has months of treatment ahead of him. He’s in good spirits, and is regaining his strength for ‘round 2’ right now!
The EBS team would like to ask you to join us in donating to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Mohan’s name. While we fully expect that most will donate out of kindness, we’d like to provide you with some added incentive:
If we receive $5000 in donations, Keith Bird and I will have our heads shaved in solidarity with Mohan. Here onsite in Reston HQ. And we will commit the entire event to video so that we are able to share with Mohan. To further sweeten the deal, when you donate, you will be entered to be eligible to be selected to shave our heads. So if donating to a worthy cause isn’t enough for you but you have some pent up aggression with regards to our team, perhaps this will provide you an outlet! You, of course, may opt out of this rather dubious honor - but we would still like you to donate :--)
Of course, if you’d like to offer your own head up for shaving, bring it on – the more, the merrier!
All donations made via this site will go directly to LLS - no middleman. I’m also ecstatic to inform you that TNS has agreed to match all individual donations! That means that if we make our goal of $5000, we will actually be able to donate $10,000!
Give early, give often – and good luck!
