Echo has set a goal to donate $5000 to charity: water in order to build a clean water project for a community that needs clean water.
For every person at SXSW that posts #donate on Echo, the company will donate $1.00 in their name towards the goal. When the project is complete charity: water will send photos and GPS coordinates to everyone so you can see the results of project.

"Echolocation's focus is to get the entire community involved not just through the use of their app, but also through their mycharity: water fundraising campaign," said Kaitlyn Jankowski, support experience manager at charity: water. "Echolocation's definition of community extends far beyond domestic borders as they are looking to involve the SXSW community to impact a community in one of the 20 developing countries in which we work."
