Twestival City Count Tops 105!

The Power of Social Media For Good

It’s amazing isn’t it? The power of social media. The idea that people from all over the world can connect and come together to address a timely and urgent need: the need for clean drinking water.

If you’re interested in helping out at an event near you – and why wouldn’t you be? – look up your city on www.twestival.com, clink on the contact for that city, and get to work!

With everyone’s participation this is going to be a truly historical event!

Making History! Twestival SF Thursday, February 12, 2009

Do you twitter?

Join us for an historic global event!

On Thursday, February 12th, San Francisco is joining forces with over 60 cities around the world, harnessing the power of twitter, social media and technology for an evening of fun and networking to raise money and awareness for Charity: Water.

Why is it historic?
For the first time ever twitter (www.twitter.com) users from around the world will be participating in a single event to be broadcast live from major cities to benefit a single vitally important cause.

Why Water?
Right now 1.1 billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in six of us. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease, and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Many communities in developing nations often have a plentiful supply of clean drinking water just below the ground, but no way to get to it.

What is Charity: Water?

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. www.charitywater.org
