BBG Movember Kickoff

Earlier this month, a division of the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG/IBB/VOA) kicked off "Movember" (also known as "No-Shave November") to raise money for CFC.  The month is designed to bring awareness to men's health issues.  BBG employees donned mustaches (real or fake!) and posed with a cardboard cut-out of Ron Burgundy — a character from the comedy movie "Anchorman."  It is clear from the photos that the BBG team had a great time at this event!

In an excellent display of leadership involvement, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden appeared in a Campaign video and encouraged NASA employees to give.  As we enter the holiday season, he states "...this year, as you begin to contemplate holiday shopping, why not shop for a charity or two to support?"  Mr. Bolden reminds us that "Make it possible" is a call to action and that resources like keyworkers are always available to help.

The Telecommunications Access Policy Division (TAPD) of the Wireline Competition Bureau (within the Federal Communications Commission) made a unique promise to their employees: If CFC participation reached 100%, TAPD managers would have buckets of ice dumped on their heads!  

Fortunately (or unfortunately for the managers), 100% participation was reached.  WCB's TAPD Managers (Lisa Hone, Ryan Palmer, and Jonathan Lechter) all endured the cold, stating which causes or charities were important to them before getting doused with ice water.
