SW Broadway & Yamhill
Portland, Oregon

The first 30 hour day--the livestreaming Web-based telethon we put together to raise money for charities in the Portland area--brought in around $7000 for Free Geek, the Oregon Food Bank, and Toys for Tots, a couple of barrels of food, and at least one overflowing barrel of toys. Not to mention generating 30 consecutive hours of entertainment from awesome local artists for more than 70,000 people who tuned in to watch.

Not bad for roughly six weeks from concept to completion.

Now, we're hard at work on 30 hour day 2. And it promises to be bigger and better than the first.

Mark your calendars! We'll see you on July 2, 2010.
