With one day left until tomorrow's Twestival, the event is continuing to grow. In addition to the LA Twestival at downtown's 740 Club, now Anaheim will host their own Twestival tomorrow night at the Sheraton Park.

The event is happening in over 200 cities worldwide, and aims to bring people together to raise money for charity:water. 1.1 billion people don't have access to clean drinking water, and as charity:water's Scott Harrison explains, they want to fix this. 100% of all money raised from tomorrow's Twestival's go directly to the construction of wells and the provision of clean drinking water. Tickets start at $20 and it's money well spent!

LAist interviewed Ben Morrison,one of the organizers and hosts of the LA Twestival, earlier this week.
