Daily Good Deed at SXSW

"Do a good deed daily" is an excellent little rule to live by and the Convio team is all about making that easier for folks. For the next four days, we're pleased to be adding an extra (and easy) opportunity for doing a good deed daily with our "fork over your lunch money" campaign.

Throughout SXSW Interactive (today-Tuesday), we're sponsoring lunch at The Beacon Lounge and instead of asking SXSW attendees to pay for the food, we're asking them to reach into their pockets and fork over their lunch money to support an Austin charity. Each day will be dedicated to a different organization and because we think sometimes more really is more, we're going to match up to $500 per day.

I know you are reading this on your computer/smartphone/tablet and thinking "hey, that's pretty sweet" and some of you are thinking "Sign me up! Food for a cause!". For y'all, yup, see you for lunch! But for those of you thinking "Lame, I'm going to be at cousin Lucy's wedding in No-wheres-ville instead" have no fear. In addition to accepting cash donations at the lunch we've also set up a donation page for anyone, SXSW attendee or otherwise, to contribute to the cause.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, I invite you sit back, relax and enjoy these short videos about our awesome beneficiary charities.

Saturday, March 10: Lifelong Friends

Sunday, March 11: American YouthWorks

Monday, March 12: Capital Area Food Bank

Tuesday, March 13: American Red Cross of Central Texas
