What Are You Thankful For?

Last year the folks at Epic Change did an amazing job creating a stir about Tweetsgiving and raised over $10,000 to build a classroom in Arusha, Tanzania in just over 48 hours. When I met Stacy Monk and Avi Kaplan at the NTEN Conference I couldn’t help but offer to chip in and help this year to benefit the school, where a dormitory/orphanage, library, school cafeteria and additional classrooms are sorely needed.

This year there will be a fundraiser in over 40 cities around the world to raise funds for the school and one of those events is right here in San Jose at Santana Row’s Rosie McCanns.

Wednesday Nov. 25, 2009
6 PM- 9 PM
Local authors will be signing books including:
Shel Israel – Twitterville
Mitchell Levy 42 Rules for Driving Success with Books
Janet Fouts- Social Media Success!

Donations are recommended, and each donor will get a raffle ticket for some great prizes as well as a drink at the bar (soda, wine, beer or well), plenty of lively conversation and the knowledge that you’ve made a big difference in the lives of these children. Watch this video to see more about where the funds go. Tweetsgiving is for the kids and how you can help.

What are you waiting for? Sign-up and celebrate Thanksgiving twice!
