Hurricane Katrina Relief, HP Charity Auction, American Red Cross, DATA
September 28, 2005
A fellow blogger and AMA Boston member, Susan Getgood recently, actually two weeks ago, asked me to blog about a charity auction on ebay for Hurricane Katrina, support if you can.
“A charity auction on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/hp) featuring photographs of about 40 stars that attended the Toronto Film Festival. Sponsored by HP, the auction benefits the American Red Cross (http://www.redcross.org) and DATA, the not-for-profit started by U2 singer Bono that strives to eliminate poverty in sub-Saharan Africa (http://www.data.org).
She had a problem: the project came together so fast that they really didn’t have time to do “traditional” marketing. But if she didn’t get the word out quickly, people wouldn’t know about the auction, which ends on September 29th.”
