Supporting St. Jude through September!

Oh hello. It’s been a little while! 60 full days have passed since my last update — didn’t mean to be quiet for that long, yikes. The summer has been pretty busy, and I’ve been working on a bunch of behind-the-scenes service improvements for omg.lol (including a bunch of stuff related to DNS and improving our global service footprint). Still, though, I shouldn’t have been so quiet in this weblog. Sorry about that!

Anyway, straight to the important stuff. From now until the end of September, omg.lol is donating 50% of everything we earn to Relay FM’s St. Jude fundraiser. And we’re going to do it through Robb Knight’s fundraising campaign, because Robb is awesome! He’s a podcaster and all-around awesome guy, and the omg.lol community is truly fortunate to have him. ❤️

You can learn more about Robb on robb.omg.lol (of course), or on his beautiful personal website. You can also follow him on Mastodon.

I kicked off our contribution to Robb’s fundraising goal with a $250 donation earlier, and as I write this (a bit after midnight on Tuesday morning), half of Monday’s earnings comes out to $37.76. I’ll keep this page updated each day so we can track our fundraising progress.

For those who don’t know, the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is dedicated to treating and preventing cancer in children. They’ve done this for over 60 years, and they do it with excellence, determination, and grace. Relay FM has been supporting St. Jude with an annual fundraiser since 2019, and this is omg.lol’s first (but certainly not last) year joining the cause.

More to come on this soon. Until then, back to work!
