Casey Neistat Uses The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Film Promo Budget to Fund a Philippines Typhoon Relief Mission


20th Century Fox approached filmmaker Casey Neistat to create a promo for the upcoming Ben Stiller film, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty on the theme of “chasing a dream.”


Neistat responded that he wanted to use the movie’s entire $25,000 promotional budget to go provide relief in the Phillipines, which had been hit by Typhoon Haiyan on November 7th, 2013.

Neistat and his group provided over 10,000 meals, worked with a local nurse to purchase needed medicine and medical supplies, and provided tools to 35 villages to aid in rebuilding. You can also help by donating to Unicef.
