Staff at Moshi HQ are running the Royal Parks Half Marathon on 6 October 2013 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. We have set ourselves the monstrous mission of raising £100,000 and we need your help!
To help us hit this target we have created Faces.MoshiMonsters.com a website where you can upload your photo onto our Monstro City Pledge Gallery and make a donation through our Just Giving page.
All the money we raise will make a real difference to children and families, helping to fund Great Ormond Street Hospital’s Play Workers. The Play Team is a crucial part of the patients’ treatment, helping children deal with fears or worries about being in hospital, preparing them for medical procedures, and providing distraction and fun on the wards.
£100,000 would fund three full-time Play Workers for a year.
Every square purchased pushes us closer to our goal, so please get sharing with your family and friends!

Ping Pong is super popular with startups so Alex Will (Listora), Kathryn Parsons (Decoded) and I (Mind Candy) thought it would be fun to organise a tournament to figure out which tech company should be crowned wiff waff champions.
It started as a little side project but the response has been so overwhelming we’ve decided to turn the night into a big party with hundreds of people, cheerleaders, DJs, practice tables and lots of other fun stuff. 16 teams will be slugging it out on the night (4 players per team) and we’ve got a great mix of early stage startups alongside established titans like Facebook, Hailo and Moo.
It’s taking place on the 25th of September (right in the midst of Social Media Week) and we hope as many people as possible can come down and cheer on their favourite startup.
