World's Greatest Shave is only two weeks away, and as you may know, a number of Alltraders staff members are curently participating in this year's World's Greatest Shave, a charity event to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

We aim to raise $5000, and have already achieved 31% of this goal through your kind donations, but we still need your help! This time last week, Alltraders was in the top ten South Australian teams (#8), and one of our two big bosses, CIO Michael O'Loughlin, with 30% of his $2500 goal already reached, was within the state's top 50. We've since slipped down the ladder, and we all want to see Michael bald (check the comments on his shave page), so give generously - it's for a great cause too.

Also, you may not know that shaving is not the only option at the World's Greatest Shave, and not all Alltraders members will be shaving. So instead of shaving, what are our participating team members going to do?

Please Donate

"Today, 31 Australians will get the news they have blood cancer. Your donation will support them from the moment they are diagnosed."

The following partitipants will be changing their appearance in the following ways for the World's Greatest Shave:

It's easy to make a donation, and you can remain anonymous if you wish. Simply go to any of the participating member's pages above or to the Alltraders team page, and click the orange "Sponsor Me" button on the top left of the page.

Why not come and watch? Come to our event and make a donation on the day. The time and location of our associated haircuts, hair colouring and chest waxing will be announced soon.

World's Greatest Shave raises funds for the Leukaemia Foundation's important work – providing free practical and emotional support to people with blood cancer and their families, as well as investing millions in research.

You only have until mid March to make a donation, so be quick and make it count!

There has recently been a couple of important new features in the popular email delivery platform, MailChimp.

MailChimp now makes it easy to include video in your email. Not true video though in your email (that's pretty much impossible for email) - but the ability to automatically create a thumbnail and link just from the youtube url of the video at a size of your choice. Even better, this process is automated when including RSS feeds that include videos, which leads me to the next notable MailChimp feature. This is for many people old news, as it is a feature that was originally introduced to MailChimp in April last year. I believe it is as revolutionary as content managed websites are to plain html websites. It is still rarely utilised or known about by many MailChimp users. It is about combining the powers of two online mediums - email and RSS.


The vast majority of newsletters most businesses are likely to send with MailChimp are of the plain ol' campaign type, allowing the delivery of a completely customised html email newsletter, with a couple of dynamic fields (person's name, etc). A/B comparative campaigns and others are possible, but due to the additional time required in setting these up (not much but some), are historically not used that often by our clients.
