These boots were made for walking

Emma Daken is walking the length of New Zealand to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis sufferers.

Good to see the use of social media to promote her cause.

On the subject of charity; this year I have chosen not to reprise last year's participation in Movemeber. I saw some news reports that suggested there were, shall we say, oddities in the way the Movember charity was established. Apparently the guys who started the fundraising concept were collecting a large percentage of the funds raised as royalty payments for the use of their own 'IP'. I think the matter was resolved in some way but, for me at least, the damage was done - it was a matter of trust.
