I Tattooed My Calf To Raise Funds For Childhood Cancer Research!

Thank you so much for your encouragement, support and generous donation for this year's NetApp Singapore - St. Baldrick’s Foundation fund raising event. You helped me raise over US$47,000 and collectively as team NetApp Singapore, we raised US$140,000 for childhood cancer research.

The logistics to arrange the tattooing during the event was challenging. Not surprisingly, the folks at Harry's Bar did not allow the act to be performed on their premises on grounds of licensing and health consideration. So Plan B was to set up Skype Video between Johnny Two Thumb Tattoo Studio and Harry's Bar.

However, as with most live telecasts and considering our amateur set-up, issues like internet bandwidth and system compatibility cropped up. However, we managed to work around the issues and beamed the live video images to the packed event where my colleagues had their hairs shaved.

All in all, a fantastic event for an important cause. Thanks again for your support!
