Final Punishment: Sandwich Board Shame at the White House

Posted on: September 13th, 2011 by Geoff Livingston 7 Comments

Finally, it’s time for the third punishment from The Punish Geoff Fundraiser for Mark Horvath’s InvisiblePeople.tv. Yes, the sandwich board was donned saying, “I’ve written two social media books. Please hire me.” But instead of a walk of shame in front of Congress social media savoir faire was mocked in front of the White House.

Enjoy the fun.

And do support Mark Horvath’s InvisiblePeople.tv. Mark’s journey across the continent has finished in Canada and now enters the U.S. leg as he drives back to the West Coast highlighting the hidden faces of homelessness across America.

Thanks to all of you who donated and supported the Punish Geoff Fundraiser.

Mark Horvath on Punish Geoff Fundraiser Impact

Posted on: August 4th, 2011 by Geoff Livingston 1 Comment

Mark Horvath sent this video last night to thank all of the people who donated to and shared The Punish Geoff Fundraiser. Thank you to the 30 donors who have made $2055, and a significant impact on InvisiblePeople‘s drive across the country. Every dollar counts against a matching grant offered by the Pierce Family Foundation.

BUT WAIT. We’re not done yet.

There’s still two days left, and one punishment left to accomplish… Making me walk in front of Congress wearing a sandwich board that says “I wrote two social media books, PLEASE hire me!” We’re roughly $1100 away, less than what you collectively contributed Thursday and Friday of last week.

There are three things you can do:

1) Please Donate

2) Realize Your Impact

If you want to see InvisiblePeople.tv’s work, simply watch this movie trailer (coming out in 2012). It is incredible how Mark is raising the visibility of homelessness. You can help continue this fantastic project!

3) Have Fun

The Geoff Punishments will be metered out next week. We’ll have a lot of fun with it, promise! Stay tuned for details.

Most importantly, thank you for your support.

Explaining the Fundraiser Punishments

Posted on: August 2nd, 2011 by Geoff Livingston 4 Comments

Thank you to the 22 donors who have already raised almost $1600 to “punish” me and help InvisiblePeople.tv. All donors are listed below. Thank you so much! Mark Horvath has already told us how much this means to him, lifting the sails of his journey across the continent to help the homeless.

The Punish Geoff Fundraiser is not over yet! The above video explains the punishments. To recap:

1) $18 – I will receive a shaving cream pie in the face (56 donations at this amount needed, 12 received)

2) $47 – Dress in drag for a Google Hang Out or U-Stream on the Fifth Estate (43 needed, 11 received)

3) $79 – You or a designee can throw me into pool while I am wearing a suit (27 needed)

4) $161 – I have to walk in front of Congress wearing a sandwich board that says “I wrote two social media books, PLEASE hire me!” (20 needed, 8 received)

Given the current state of the individual punishments, I will enact the punishment that matches dollars raised. Right now we are at a couple of shaving cream pies in the face. With roughly $450 more, I’ll have to dress in drag for a live video chat. And another $1600 will bring the sandwich board shame in front of Congress!

Not only do you get to have fun, but you are also helping the fight against homelessness! Mark explains the InvisiblePeople.tv project below. Even better, your donations are working twice as hard as Mark is raising money for a $10,000 matching grant from the Pierce Family Foundation.
