A 24-Hour Hackathon for Humanity

Shopforjapan

A viral campaign to help Japan

A small team I was on created this website in a 24-hour sprint. We had seen the momentum humanitarian efforts could gain from viral campaigns. This inspired us to create a viral campaign that successfully galvanized shoppers and businesses to donate to the Japanese earthquake relief efforts. Over 60 businesses signed up around the world and over $10,000 was raised.
