Back in February, we told you about Twestival, a worldwide "tweet-up" in the name of raising money for charity:water. Over 200 cities, incuding Los Angeles and Anaheim hosted their own Twestivals. What madeTwestival and the partnership with charity:water so great, in addition to the fact that thousands of people came together to make this happen in a matter of weeks, is that 100% of the proceeds raised from Twestival goes directly to the provision of clean and safe drinking water. (And we browsed their financials, they are legit).
They raised over $250,000, and while this fell short of their $1 million goal, the event was a success. And now they are going to prove it.
Beginning today, at 6pm, we can watch as they drill the first Twestival well in Ethiopia and they are giving readers a chance to ask questions and get them answered by the drillers and community members.
