Today, February 12, marks the culmination of an awful lot of effort and energy by many people around the world, volunteers all, who have made Twestival.
This is an event taking place today in over 175 cities around the world, all with the ultimate objective of raising money to support the work of charity: water, a non-profit organization that brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries by funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need.
Where I live in the UK, the nearest Twestival to me is Reading Twestival, and Iâ€™m going to be there this evening at 7pm. If youâ€™re planning on being there, too, and havenâ€™t yet got your ticket, thereâ€™s still time! Thereâ€™ll even be a raffle where you could win some cool stuff.
Wherever you are in the world, thereâ€™s a chance thereâ€™s a Twestival near you â€“ check the sidebar on the Twestival home page for the long list of cities, each with a link to the local Twestival.
Twestival is more than simply an event in cities around the world â€“ you can also:
- Upload or buy music at Twestival.fm
- Take part in the t-shirt design competition
- Donate to charity: water
However you participate in Twestival, have fun as well!
