SpaceX has gained worldwide attention for a series of historic milestones. It is the only private company ever to return a spacecraft from low Earth orbit, which it accomplished in December 2010.

As we learn more about the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, it's apparent that the needs of the affected population are going to quickly outstrip the resources available. SXSW urges you to donate now to the Red Cross, which has a great history of being first on the scene after a disaster, offering the most practical help available. Your contribution, large or small, can make a real difference in people's lives who are lacking the most basic necessities - water, food, shelter, and medical attention.
You can make a donation now at sandyrelief.sxsw.com now. Tell your friends.
