HP is going to help in making of a new children’s hospital in San Francisco for which some of Silicon Valley’s most creative people are teaming up online and competing in the UCSF Challenge for the Children.

According to the HP blog:

Raising money and awareness for the cause are contestants like Ron Conway, Om Malik and Marc Benioff, who are competing to see who has the most influence online.  Their measure of influence:  whoever can rally the most people to contribute.  The winner will claim naming rights to a section of the hospital that will promote play, learning, and discovery for children and their families.

HP is launching a min-challenge which kicks off today. HP will match every donation made between now and December 16, up to a total contribution of $10,000. In keeping with the spirit of the Challenge, HP is supporting all levels of contribution to this cause, whether it’s $10 or $1,000, until the $10,000 maximum is reached.

Following is the video about the Challenge and the cause by listening to Marc Benioff (who is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer , Salesforce.com) tell the story behind it all in this video from UCSF:
