On Thursday, March 25th, Phoenix will participate in Twestival with 200+ cities around the world in a global tweetup for charity. Our last event raised over $250,000 for charity: water, enabling them to drill 55 wells serving 17,000 people in Uganda, Ethiopia and India.
Twestival enables people from Twitter to connect offline, network and catch up socially while supporting a good cause. Twestival is organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of the money raised goes directly to charity.
Twestival's 2010 goal is to help ConcernWorldWide (@concern) in their efforts to reduce suffering and end extreme poverty. For 42 years, Concern has been tackling the root causes of extreme poverty through focus on education, health (HIV and AIDS), livelihoods and emergency response. Concern has more than 3,600 employees working in 28 of the world's poorest countries in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.
Concern is also actively focused on the emergency in Haiti.
Our aim is to bring all the various groups of #phx tweeps together in concert with this global tweetup to raise money for a good cause and to build community.
