Richard Branson’s Virgin Unite philanthropy has organized an online fund raising drive for Pakistan flood relief.  There is some good, substantive discussion about Pakistan and humanitarian relief interspersed with performances from well-known artists. Here’s the announcement:

Join Imogen Heap, Sir Richard Branson and friends online, in a very spontaneous ‘get together’ with live music and open discussion, as we all raise funds to benefit the victims of the recent devastating floods in Pakistan.

Hosted by Ze Frank. Intimate musical performances by Imogen Heap, Ben Folds, Amanda Palmer, Kate Havnevik, KT Tunstall, Josh Groban, Kaki King, Zoe Keating and Mark Isham.

Conversations with Sir Richard Branson, Mary Robinson, Cameron Sinclair, Mark Pearson (live from Karachi), Gary Slutkin and Anders Wilhemlson. May well be more as the word spreads!
