The Haiti Food Project concert and benefit produced by MAZON on February 4, 2010 raised over $400,000 for “second aid” for Haiti.
The event brought together musicians and inspirational speakers including emcee, Beverly Todd, Her Excellency Geri Benoit-Preval, Haiti’s Ambassador to the U.N. World Food Program & Food Agriculture Organziation, Deepak Chopra, and others.
Performances included Freda Payne singing “Here’s to Life”as well as Brenda Russell performing “Get Here if You Can” and Saxaphonist Dave Koz accompanied by Brian Simpson with a beautiful rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
The highlight was the finale where all of the performers sang, “We are the World.”
Social Media and More provided the social media marketing for the event.
“On behalf of MAZON and the children of Haiti who we will feed and nourish, I am deeply indebted for the social media marketing that Julie Spira provided for this benefit concert. Without her creating a ‘buzz’ in such a short time, I am certain the event would not have been the success it was. Thank you Julie”. — Dr. H. Eric Schockman, President of MAZON

Julie is the consummate professional. She is a recognized expert on social media and is a sought-after presenter for many organizations. As President of the Los Angeles chapter of the Women's National Book Association, I asked Julie if she would present at LA Bookwoman Day. She did an outstanding presentation regarding social media for writers and authors and answered many questions from the audience. I would ask her to present again without hesitation and always learn from Julie and consider her a valuable resource.
