SXSW :: Hurricane Party’s Japan Fundraiser

Here’s a brief 1-minute video I made at Kenichi, where Hurricane Party was holding a fundraiser for victim’s of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami. The team at Hurricane Party pulled this even together in less than 24 hours, and raised a significant amount of money for relief efforts.

Many thanks to Kenichi for donating food, drinks, and space. There were many silent auction items that were donated, but the only one I remember was Tito’s Vodka. As soon as the event was announced Steve Papermaster bought 100 tickets for Appconomy, and Josh Baer announced a matching donation in the name of Capital Factory.

You can find the video here.
