I know, some of you are asking “what the heck is Twestival”?! Well, Twestival or Twitter-Festival is a global series of events organized by volunteers around the world which bring people offline for a great cause. Twestival is run 100% by volunteers and independently from any not-for-profit. The organizing teams work closely to outline an achievable and measurable fundraising target. Twestival also sets out to identify key skills of volunteers and match these with the needs of the cause; particularly communications strategy, tech integration and social media training. Twestival Local takes place in cities around the world during September 10-15, 2009.
Last February, Twestival LA raised close to $20,000 for charity:water in just one night and two weeks of planning! It was a night of music, comedy, fun, and meeting new friends, while raising money to help bring clean water to those who need it. Now they’re back, raising money and supporting two of LA’s local organizations — CHRYSALIS and the LA Regional Foodbank.
Meg’s Makeup will be giving away a Beauty Gift Bag filled with all kinds of delicious beauty products! As we know, a girl can never have too many cosmetics and we never get tired of giving away beauty products.
So, if you are in LA this Sunday, grab a ticket (which is your donation for those organizations), come on down and enjoy some live comedy, music performances, mix, and mingle with your fellow Twitter friends.
