TweetsGiving 2009: Changing the World with the Power of Gratitiude

TweetsGiving invites you to bring your grateful heart to the party this November. Scheduled for November 24 – 26, 2009, TweetsGiving is a global celebration that seeks to change the world through the power of gratitude.

The 48 hour event was created by Epic Change and encourages us to express thanks using online tools and at live get-togethers across the world. Guest are invited to give to a common cause in honor of those people and things that make them grateful. This year Epic Change will be partnering with Lucy Kamptoni in Tanzania to implement a technology lab at a primary school.

Epic Change launched the original TweetsGiving in November 08, with just six days of planning and only two days before the US Thanksgiving holiday, successfully raising over $10,000 to build a classroom in Arusha, Tanzania. Now those students need a technology lab to equip them for participation in a global marketplace.

When 12for12k supporter and friend John Haydon asked me to get involved with TweetsGiving I had no idea what I was getting into. Now I’m on a grand, party planning adventure. I’m searching for a venue for a local TweetsGiving event, entertainment and sponsors. You can find an event to attend near where you live at the TweetsGiving site.
