A Monthly Happening to Benefit Pittsburgh Charity Organizations
What do you get when you combine the cultural musings of YouTube with one City Councilman and add a benefit to help a worthy organization? You get PeduTube, a monthly social happening created by City Councilman Bill Peduto in order to bring recognition and funds to groups that help make Pittsburgh a better place.
Once a month, around a holiday, Peduto invites everyone to join him as he VJ’s the best and worst of YouTube videos via 2 macbooks and 2 large screen TVs at Cappy’s Cafe on Walnut Street. For a $5 donation, anyone can choose what video he will play and board members make matching donations.
Don’t miss this month’s Pedutube!
PeduTube 5: It’s not just for breakfast anymore.
Saturday, May 30, 2009
Walnut Street, Shadyside
This month we will be raising money for the Fallen Heroes Fund. All proceeds will go to the families of the three Pittsburgh Police Officers who lost their lives last month. If you can’t join us on Saturday, you can still be a part of PeduTube by using the form below and requesting your YouTube video for a $5 donation or you can be a sponsor of this event by pledging a nickel, dime or quarter for every dollar we raise.
ALL DONATIONS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. YOU WILL BE CONTACTED BY EMAIL TO CONFIRM YOUR DONATION AND ARRANGE PAYMENT.
To learn more about the organizations we have helped, please visit their websites and get involved:
March: Every Child, Inc.
January: The Union Project
Pedutube is proud to have helped raise nearly $10,000 for these needed organizations, and to have helped to promote their causes to new audiences in a fun and unique way. We will be taking a break during the summer — to spend research time on the internet and will be back in the Fall with a new line-up of great organizations to help and promote.
