In 2011, the SXSW community helped raise more than $125,000 for tsunami disaster relief funds for the Red Cross via the pop-up website SXSW4Japan. This incredible on-site fund-raising effort helped demonstrate how much this community cares about those in need of assistance. In 2013, we are again invoking this spirit of generosity to help two very worthy charitable organizations.
