What is Twestival? “ A
Twestival ( Twitter + Festival) is an evening event that started in London back in September 2008 so that the online Twitter community could meet the faces behind the avatars and do some good for a social cause. The first event was organized in less than two weeks, demand for the event exceeded 300 people, and raised money and collected canned food for a local homeless charity.”
What is the charity ?
“ 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. WHO WE ARE. charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. We give 100% of the money raised to direct project costs, funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need. Just $20 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 years.”
