Now that Jump Back Ball is done for the year and I don’t have shop nights to attend or an outfit to throw together, you’d think I’d take a break and relax. You’d be wrong.
Short for Twitter Festival, Twestival uses social media for social good by connecting communities offline on a single day. Each city that’s involved organizes an event on behalf of a nonprofit that’s local to their community. The event is organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go directly to the charity.
This year’s Twestival Local will be celebrated across the globe on Thursday, March 24th and the @TwestivalCLE team is currently planning a party from 5 to 9 pm at AMP 150. With great food, a wide selection of drinks, and raffles and auctions, it’ll be an enjoyable evening where you can meet and mingle with fellow Tweeters and Clevelanders.
Most importantly, the evening will benefit a charity that is local to our area. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve taken nominations from the community for non-profits that are supporting Cleveland. Thank you to everyone who nominated a group! Now, the Cleveland Twestival team is in the process of deciding which nominated charity will benefit.
You can find out which organization is selected, as well as other Twestival updates, by following us on Twitter @TwestivalCLE and the Cleveland Twestival blog. On occasion, I’ll also be posting a few things here. I hope to see some of my Clue Into Cleveland friends and readers on March 24th!
