PKN-sf v37 Wavecast- Thank you, but...there's more

All who attended or tuned in to the PK-sf/ Global Pechakucha Night "WaveCast",

Thank you. You all made last night's 'little experiment' a terrific experience all around. We appreciate your support, interest patience and flexibility and hope you'll attend future PKNs - and make a presentation. One last request though,now please tell your friends about this latest experience of ours and send them to our PK-page to see what will now suddenly become a rather large collection of amazing presentations from around the world. If Tel Aviv can sell out a 2,000 person space 1-week in advance 6 times, now, all by using FB, Tweets and word-of-mouth, I conclude we're just not 'passing it on' enough. Now you've got a really good reason to do it. Think about contributing as an act of design. Wouldn't it be amazing to be a part of helping to lift Haiti out of their 2-centuries long 'Basket case of the Western Hemisphere' status once and for all?

In the coming weeks or so, look for a notice of your shows up on the website. Pass this link along to your friends or post it on your FB page or just RT with love.

Tell them to hit the blue bar of giving. You'll see the running tally of the contributions through PK-sf. We may have brought in roughly $5k from the door & drinks, but the real giving can get going.

Until next time,

PechaKucha Night fever

It only took seconds to destroy so many bright hopes and dreams in Haiti. The 280 city PechaKucha network is joining with Architecture for Humanity to help rebuild Haiti 20 seconds at a time. Join us around the the world on 20th February for Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti. 20 seconds, 20 images, 200 cities, 2000 presentations, 200,000 people - with the aim to raise $1,000,000 for rebuilding Haiti.

All proceeds go directly to Architecture for Humanity's Non-Profit organization and will be used for building facilities in Haiti.

Hosted by Paul Jamtgaard & Team PK-sf.

Join us to take the "Pecha Kucha" conversation and turn it into action and real IMPACT.

We need your help to get out the word and support this enormously important goal.

thanks, Team -PK-sf
