Twestival (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good by connecting communities offline on a single day to highlight a great cause and have a fun event. Twestival is the largest global grassroots social media fundraising initiative to date. Since 2009, volunteers have raised close to $1.2 million for 137 nonprofits. All local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go direct to projects. Over 200 international cities from Buenos Aires to Bangalore, Seattle to Seoul and Hong Kong to Honolulu have participated in Twestival.
The 2011 Triangle Twestival planning committee will have more details in the weeks to come. Follow all the details on Twitter at @raltwestival. They are hustling up some really great things for the event!
The 2011 Triangle Twestival will support ME³ an incredible local nonprofit that connects individuals and groups to volunteer opportunities with over 70 local nonprofit partners.
