Twestival Local: Using Twitter to fundraise
Have you heard about Twestival? In one day last February, people all over the globe used Twitter to organize fundraising events that raised $250,000 for charity:water.

Well it’s back! This time it’s Twestival Local. Hundreds of teams around the world will be raising money for hundreds of local charities.

Even if you’re not one of these fortunate charities, I’d encourage you to get involved. This type of event will help you experience what it’s like to work with social media savvy people that are passionate about nonprofits. Since these are organized with a mix of Twitter and face-to-face meetings (called “tweetups”), you’ll also get a crash course in effectively using Twitter! 🙂
