I imagine not, but would it be appropriate for the site to be rebranded for a month or a notice put out to promote the international Men's Health Charity movement Movember?

  • That was my effort for Movember 2 years ago, I grew it from November 1st until the next April. It was good to play with while pondering problems.

    One crazy idea that probably wouldn't work is to write a blog post for our Community Blog. It should be something about programmers and mustaches though, can't really be only about promoting the charity. Something about this guy perhaps?

You could try to do it as a community promotion ad. The guidelines for a community ad on programmers are fairly open, you just have to convince enough people that it's a good idea.


I fully support the Mo-vember cause, so have some sympathy with the suggestion.

However, charity support is a very personal matter, and I would be against any in-your-face adoption of any charity by this site (or any other SE site)

So my answer to your question is a resounding No.

But I like the Community Ad idea


Based on @freiheit's suggestion, I've added a community ad you can vote for.

At the moment, the link is to my donation page, leave a comment if you think a different URL would be more aposite.
