M4G worked with Pandora and The Ally Coalition to put together the panel “Music & Activism: Amplifying Your Voice for Social Good” at SXSW and implemented a service project for the local Austin homeless shelter, Front Steps.

Immediately following the panel, we invited audience members and musicians, brands and SXSW-goers to put together gift bags for the shelter. Volunteers of all ages including members of Arcade Fire & State Radio came together to assemble gift bags full of shaving supplies, warm socks, healthy snacks and more.  We then loaded up the sporty red vehicles that Mazda generously lent us to transport the gift bags from the Austin Convention Center to the front doors of Front Steps.
