SXSW Japan Tsunami & Earthquake Relief
There's still 4 hours left (it ends at midnight Central) to tune in to the telethon happening at http://www.sxsw4japan.org/, which was organized by Hanson at the SXSW festival. Over 30 artists have already stopped in to sing on the telethon and encourage people to donate money.
Hanson has been actively involved in raising money for Africa for years, so it's no surprise that they felt compelled to pull together this elaborate 12-hour event in just 36 hours.
Not only am I very proud to be a Hanson fan right now, I was also moved when I heard that the company I work for donated $1 million to the relief efforts.
The ridiculously easiest way to donate is to text REDCROSS to 90999, which just adds $10 to your next phone bill.
