Monthly Report - November

Time to relax before ...

What a shame, I delayed the Monthy Report once again. Although I did manage to publish last month on time i.e. 4th Nov.

Do I have reason to justify the delay?

Well, December, is always the busiest month. It is the month when I spend more time with family than ususal. Also I was busy with the Advent Calendar 2021.

As you must have guessed, today I am done with the final gift. Hence, the monthly report is getting time. There was another reason for the delay as I started Live Coding again. I have done few, which I will talk about in the end of year report in a week time, insha-ALLAH.

So, what was the highlight of last month?

I started the 1000 days FREE T-shirt campaign. I am so grateful for all the support that I received so far. It feels great. I decided to gift FREE specially designed T-shirt to all the champions of The Weekly Challenge. I am done with the most difficult phase of the campaign i.e. collecting funds. Thanks to all the sponsors, we have collected £1029.64 in total. The fund is enough to cover the cost of T-shirt printing and international delivery as per my own estimation.

As of today, I have received 32 confirmations out of 53 eligible members. I am not in a rush to be honest. I would want to gift each and every eligible members unless anyone says the opposite. I am hoping after the holiday break they will find time to respond to my email request. You can find the regular update to the campaign in the blog here.

I find it hard to remember what I did last month, every time the monthly report gets delayed. Never mind, I will cover up in the annual report in a week time if I remember anything later.

I wish you all Merry Christmas and stay safe with your loved ones.
