Ever since we started the podcast in 2011, we've tried to have fun and give back. With the weekly show, we feel like we give a little bit back to the technology community that is interested in cloud computing.

And for some strange reason, we've also incorporated Krispy Kreme donuts into many of our activities. It started in 2010 when Aaron and Brian participated in the Krispy Kreme Challenge and continues to this day. Here's video from last year's event:

 

This year we're taking our ability to give back and have fun to a new level. We're asking our listeners to (jointly) help us make a donation to the sponsor of the event, North Carolina Children's Hospital. They do amazing work for kids in need, and we'd like to help them make a few more lives better. We're setting a goal of $1000 in listener donations, and Aaron and Brian will match $1000. Every little bit helps, and donations are tax deductible (US laws apply).

We'll do the training, run the miles and suffer the consequences of sugery gluttony. You listen to the show, give a few $$ and maybe tell a friend. We all help make the kids lives a little better. It's a win-win for everyone involved.

If anyone wants to join us on the run, you're welcome to join the Cloudcast pack (12 donuts is optional). If anyone has creative ideas for costumes that Aaron and Brian should wear, we're open to suggestions. If anyone can get matching corporate sponsorship for the donations, all the better.
