Some of you may have heard of Twestival, a gathering of social media people to collect funds for charity. It is an initiative from the worldwide Twitter community with a commitment of Social Media for Social Change (SM4SC). These events explore the exciting possibilities for change and raise money for charity. Global Twestival was organized for the first time on February 12, and collected 250K US$ to drill wells in Africa & Asia and provide many villages with fresh, clean DRINKING WATER for many years to come. A local Twestival was organized last September, and collected 750 US$ for local charity projects.
As the Brussels Twestival organizer, I am part of the global team that selects charity projects. The theme for next Twestival, March 25, is EDUCATION. The following organizations have been shortlisted:
Should you know any of these organizations well enough to share your experience/provide feedback, please provide your input as a reply here or in private (please connect through Twitter first).
Thank you in anticipation,
