A quick update for Movember

Hi everyone,

Just to let you know, I have managed to raise GBP £239! Thank you all for your donations and your help, what an amazing experience!

In the end, Team Jagex managed to raise a whooping GBP £7,780, placing us #2 in the Gaming Challenge, just behind Ubisoft Toronto.


What happens next?

Donations can still be submitted year round, however, for reporting purposes Movember closes the financial year on April 30, and it is at this point that we’ll know exactly how much has been raised from the Movember 2012 campaign. In May, PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) audits the financials and will determine the exact amounts to be directed towards programs.

Until then, the team will be working closely with each of our men’s health partners to ensure all funds go towards world class programs in line with their long-term strategic goals.  It goes without saying that everyone at Movember takes this process extremely seriously; it’s not simply a matter of handing over the funds.

This unique global perspective gives Movember a bird’s eye view of prostate cancer programs happening around the world, allowing them to help partners by facilitating collaboration, removing duplication and sharing best practices – all of which help to accelerate outcomes in the field. This position and knowledge is what helped form our Global Action Plan (GAP), which is the first program to be funded directly by Movember, involving partners from across the globe.

Once again, thank you all! 🙂
