We are joined in the studio for a special broadcast this afternoon to speak to Jenna Kozel, consumer security advocate at Lookout, a security technology company located in San Francisco and Anbu Anbalagapandian, Senior Software Engineer at Lookout, to talk about  Charity:water is a non-profit organization that's been bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations since 2006. Lookout is a company of hackers who create software that protects people and their most sensitive data from mobile threats. Lookout believes in "Hacking for Good" and is committed to supporting charitable projects, like Charity:Water that use technology to have an impact on the world. On Wed., May 22 at 9:00PM, Lookout is hosting a benefit concert for Charity:Water featuring Meklit Hadero. All proceeds will go to a Charity:Water project in Ethiopia. About Melkit Hadero: Born in Ethiopia and raised in San Francisco, Meklit's music influences range wide — from the jazz and soul favorites she grew up on; to the hip-hop and art-rock she loves; to folk traditions from the Americas to East Africa. Named a 2012 TED Senior Fellow, Meklit has served as an artist-in-residence at De Young Museum, New York University and Red Poppy Art House. The event will feature a live set from Meklit and her band, along with a full bar.
