Ringing In Festivus: You Light Up Our Festivus Tree, We’ll Donate to The SF Food Bank

Festivus, The Holiday For The Rest Of Us (To Give Back) Via SMS

This holiday season, we’re ringing in Festivus by offering you a way to give back to the San Francisco Food Bank via Dropcam and Twilio SMS.

We’ve set up the ceremonial Festivus aluminum pole at Twilio HQ, donned with holiday lights you can control via SMS. To make our Festivus pole come to life, text “RED” “BLUE” or “GREEN” to 202-417-FEST(3378) and watch the pole change colors via our Dropcam video feed.

Every time you text in, Dropcam and Twilio will donate one dollar’s worth of food to the SF Food Bank, up to $10,000. We’ll be livestreaming every donation and every flicker of lights until the end of Festivus on December 24th (or whenever the Festivus airing of grievances and feats of strength conclude).

Learn more about how you can donate, volunteer or help out the SF Food Bank by visiting their website here.
