[Status Update] 24 hour Mentor Marathon to support LV Shooting victims

Hey all,

We've had a long history of this community supporting various causes - most notably Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in the past.

This is an opportunity to dial-in, get some valuable knowledge, and also help the victims of the horrendous LV shooting.

Many of the SAP Community were in Las Vegas just days prior to the shooting to attend SAPTechEd...

Please spread the word - about the 24 Hour Marathon (Mentor Magic)!

Can't say for sure, but @community_goat might also make an appearance. You just never know.

    What a great list of presenters, wow! And a great way to get some help to a good cause. Thanks for the update:)

      This is in the tradition of Craig Cmehil and his 24 hour telethon to raise funds for Doctors Without Borders. I fondly recall watching Craig slowly deteriorate over the course of the 24 hours - which was well worth the 'price of admission'. And there were some great speakers too!

      Hopefully whoever is hosting in the 23rd hour has been up for at least a day, hasn't shaved, has mutiple empty coffee's around them, and can hardly speak straight. :-)

        Surprisingly the 2nd time was harder than the first time :-) But the experience of doing it twice and the money we raised for the cause was worth it hands down.

    Pulled the plug and signed up. 9 pm looks like the perfect time to talk about people skills.

    Fair warning - this will be a remake of a presentation in Australia few years ago. Apparently some people thought it was a hoot, so why not.

    I hope Sue is not too tough act to follow. :-]

      Sorry, I'll put everyone to sleep. Maybe there will be goat shenanigans though :-)

      I'm definitely not a people person, but sadly I am a sleep person so when your turn comes around I will be tucked up in bed. Are these sessions being recorded, do you know? I'd love to watch the re-run...

        Not sure if these are recorded. Maybe ask Rafael in the blog comments? Allowing to view recordings for a donation (no matter how small) seems like a win-win to me.

        Donate NOW Steve, and we'll see if we can't work something out...

    I love seeing this stuff. Thanks to everyone who is involved (although I guess that's something I should be saying in the other post)...

    Pity that I missed it. I was actually at the shooting :(

    • Oct 18, 2017 at 02:07 PM

      Oh, Gabriella, how horrible. I am glad that you are here and commenting on the SAP Community.

      Feel hugged,

      Sue
