Twestival A Fundraiser For The Web 20 Crowd 2009: Brainchild London

Twestival a fundraiser for the Web 20 crowd

was the brainchild of a group of London users who met in September for drinks and to raise money for a local soup kitchen.
The response was beyond their expectations, so they decided to do another version on a larger scale. In January, they released their idea into the Twitter-verse, and within a week, they’d heard from people willing to organize events in over 100 cities. As of today, there are 200+ cities worldwide, including Chicago, planning to celebrate Twitter and raise funds for , a global organization dedicated to building pumps and ensuring that people in developing countries have access to clean water. Here are the details for tonight’s Chicago event… Where: Catalyst Ranch (656 W. Superior) When: 6:30-8:30p Donation: $10, includes beer and wine! Even if you aren’t a Twitter user, you should still come out and support this great cause! Social networking has changed the way we interact with each and with businesses, so it’s no surprise that it has affected the way we give. Tomorrow, I’ll post my review of Twestival and discuss other ways that social networking has affected nonprofits and philanthropy!
