Were you a part of this year’s breast cancer awareness viral phenomenon on Facebook? Last year it was what color bra you were wearing, this year it was where do you put your purse when you come home. A little bit of scandal with a bit of fun and lots of awareness for a great cause. How can you not partake?

“I like it on the dining room table”….what about you?

Twestival (Twitter Festival) is an event to raise money for charitable causes around the world. This annual event takes place in large cities such as Boston, NY, and Chicago – put together solely by volunteers who wish to make a difference. In addition, all monetary amounts raised are donated in full to the cause of that particular year. When I heard about Twestival, I was immediately impressed by the amount of effort put into the event within each city. Last year, the effort was to raise money for @charitywater, and this year it was for @concern, raising money for education. This event demonstrated that social media platforms, such as twitter, are more than just for networking and socializing, but a way to unite people with a common goal and spread awareness. I wish there were more events with such great causes, where people get together for a reason beyond themselves — for a global need.

Looking forward to Twestival 2011.
