Last night’s benefit for Robin Hood Foundation‘s Food for Good program in conjunction with FreshDirect was their first ever viral event and it was a rocking success with a huge turnout at the cavernous M2. Over a thousand people showed up and there were laptops set up to connect people directly to FreshDirect’s donation page. Lots of Twitter action leading up to and during the event, with posts being projected up on big screens.
Many more people still need to be fed for the holidays so please go online and make your donation now! Then follow up by sharing it with at least 5 friends to spread the goodness. Props to the host committee for a great event, and very happy birthday wishes to Sister Mary Alice who turned 70 yesterday (and has been feeding hungry New Yorkers for decades). Check out my old blog post on the program for more info.
