Charity Smackdown Goes Social at SXSW

Charity Smackdown

Just yesterday I wrote about Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and his wonderful artwork. And today brings yet another Linkin Park-related post. The band is continuing with their Music for Relief’s charitable efforts by joining  Charity Smackdown.

The competition is presented by PayPal and features celebrities Kyle Petty, Hayden Panettiere, Brea Grant, Alec Baldwin, Corbin Bleu, Ernie Johnson and organizations Mashable and Elevenmoms. It all goes down starting on March 16th at the Mashable and Blurb Bash at SXSW and runs until March 26th. Each celebrity “team” will be utilizing social media tools like Twitter, Facebook, Myspace,  and StumbleUpon to help raise money for their respectable charities.

I’ll be donating to support Team Linkin Park, but regardless of who comes out on top it’s a definite win-win situation.
