UBC Lipdub Fundraising Video Goes Viral

Posted on the 19 April 2011 by Mregina @justfundraising

University of British Columbia student Andrew Cohen took a study break and watched a lipdub video and decided his school should do the same thing.

Money raised from corporate sponsors is going toward the Make a Wish foundation. Cohen says they are still looking for more sponsors, who will be featured on their website and in the video. So far, Blue Cross has donated one cent per view for the first 50,000 views. They reached that number in less than a day.

Watch the fun 10 minute video performed to Pink’s “Raise Your Glass”:

What a fun way to create community spirit and generate money for a good charity. To donate or to find out more, please email
