Collideascope Animation Studios did a little fund raising this year. Instead of doing the usual in-house Secret Santa thing, we decided to pool all our loose change together and see how much money the 75+ employees here could raise in 4 weeks for the
IWK Children's Hospital
(a local care and treatment center for kids with illness).
We raised $2000 total then Collideascope founders/producers doubled it! Making a grand total of $4000 raised for charity! Unfortunately for Mark "The Nature Boy" Cappello, he lost a little wager in the process. His department raised the least amount of money, thus he had to run around the block at -3 degree weather in underwear only. Witness the horror first hand here:

Just thought I'd mention a small tidbit of trivia. I was recently reminded of the fact that during the Olliver's Adventures production there was a funny thing that happened where the character known as Tara was voiced by Tara Doyle and animated by Tara Audibert. I had forgotten that funny little concindence, and now everyone knows..... the rest.... of the story.
