Twestival L.A. Reminder

Just a friendly reminder about what promises to be a pretty cool event this coming Thursday night in downtown Los Angeles. Twestival L.A. is joining cities all over the world to raise money for charity:water. With a donation as little as $10, you will be treated to live comedy, musical performances, special appearances by various internet celebrities, raffle prizes and more.

The party was completely organized and will be run by volunteers. 100% of all donations go directly to charity:water and will help bring clean, safe drinking water to the developing world. Check out the main Twestival page or L.A.’s spiffy new website for more details and to purchase tickets.

Follow @twestival_la and help spread the word. Feel free to leave a comment with your Twitter username if you are planning to attend. You might just run into one or more of your friendly neighborhood Metbloggers.

L.A. Twestival

On February 12th, Los Angeles will be joining over 100 cities in Twestival, an international event to benefit charity:water, a nonprofit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. I met the local coordinator at last night’s L.A. Geek Dinner and became very interested about this opportunity for our community to come together and help affect far-reaching social change. The L.A. Twestival organizers are working feverishly to put together a spectacular happening, but they can still use dedicated volunteers to finalize plans, as well as publicize, and attend the event.

The idea for Twestival was launched by a London collective of twitter users who gathered to raise money for a local charity. The overall intention of the worldwide fundraiser is to tap into the power of twitter to spread the word and gather participants ready to help improve the lives of those in need.
