Event Details

50/50: Make or Break from 5050good on Vimeo.

The NYC Famine Hackathon is a project of the 50/50: Make or Break Initiative to raise £1 million for UNICEF's efforts to provide aid to famine refugees in East Africa. To achieve this goal, the 50/50 platform was built to launch 50 fundraising projects in 50 days. 10 projects are already active - we hope to develop at least 5 (or 10!) more fundraising projects here in NYC, over the course of one weekend.


Our project page is up! Check it out here.

NYC Famine Hackathon

The Difference Engine, AppFirst and Grind are partnering to bring you the NYC Famine Hackathon.

Our sole purpose is to facilitate the development of at least 5 projects to help raise funds for East Africa - in one weekend.

"50/50 is a collaborative experiment, a platform of 50 little bets: digital projects created and run by individuals and teams of makers. Each project aims to engage a network of supporters to help spread the word and generate as much money for famine aid as possible.

A seemingly impossible challenge first hatched by Good for Nothing and Made by Many, 50/50 is open to everyone. Whatever you decide to do, do something. All funds go directly to UNICEF"
