If you’re on Twitter and you haven’t heard about @twestival yet, you may be following the wrong people. My Austin geek gal comrade, Michelle Greer, sent me a message a while ago about the popular Twitter Festival: Twestival.
On 12 February 2009 175+ cities around the world will be hosting Twestivals which bring together Twitter communities for an evening of fun and to raise money and awareness for charity: water.
The Twestival is organized 100% by volunteers in cities around the world and 100% of the money raised from these events will go directly to support charity: water projects.
charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations by funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need.
Our specific needs right now are: VOLUNTEERS, a venue, performers, sponsors to donate prizes and food (and drinks, wink wink!), graphic design for some promo materials and a logo, printing for posters and flyers, and friends who will spread the word far and wide, beyond the crowd that we can reach by ourselves. Again, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas.
Let’s show the rest of the world how cool we tweetin’ folk are in Nashville!
UPDATE: TICKETS NOW ON SALE!
