Well, now that February 1st midnight has come and gone, the first charity push on the new prasantmusic.com is now over. In case you don't know what I am referring to, check this post. I gave myself a day to reflect before posting.
I want to thank all of those that took part in purchasing any kind of music at http://music.prasantmusic.com during this period. All of that money will be donated to Red Cross, which will of course go to Haiti relief efforts. I also want to thank those of you who helped publicize it by doing things like "retweeting" or posting or "liking" on facebook and e-mailing links to friends. You may not realize it, but little things like this can make a big difference.
In the end it was a small group of people who came through and participated, and the amount raised wasn't much, but big things are always started by small groups of people. Every little bit counts. Thus, I remain optimistic.
There are many other causes and charities that will need our help in the future, so this is just the first of many other similar events I am planning.
If you have any feedback about this or would like to help out, feel free to let me know.
