You Can Impact Charity Without Being Rich

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

My strongest memory of SXSW 2010 was at a rooftop party when the SXSW party goers spontaneously raised $300 toward the purchase of a wheel chair for the nephew of one attendee. The young man was paralyzed temporarily, and the family could not afford a wheel chair.

Many people want to do more than just create a "Killer Ap", they want to impact the greater good. But the media only covers how the rich and successful donate, and it leaves others thinking they have no place in philanthropy. There are so many ways in social media and live to impact charities and individuals in need (not just money).

This panel will bring together three people who help causes in a variety of ways, and show entrepreneurs and others how they can, with minimal effort, make HUGE contributions to society.
