Guy spends movie marketing budget on Philippines typhoon relief


Did the air get super dusty in here all of a sudden?

Video maker Casey Neistat was hired by 20th Century Fox to make “a video about living your dreams” to promote the upcoming film “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” With Fox’s permission, he took the entire marketing budget, $25,000, and used it to help survivors of typhoon Haiyan in The Philippines.

He made a video too, of course, documenting the trip and the relief effort. Have some tissues at the ready.

Donations for typhoon relief in The Philippines can be made through UNICEF.
