Come Along, Have Fun & Help The Kids – Please!
Today’s a very special day online, thanks to our friend Joel Comm. You might know Joel from his softcover book The Adsense Code or his new hardcover book Twitter Power – we have both and recommend them highly.
Today, Joel has organized the first live, 12 hour Tweet-a-thon, with celebrity tweeters including the likes of rapper MC Hammerand actor/author/blogger Wil Wheaton. Lots of our crowd there too, like Mike Filsaime, Warren Whitlock, Matt Bacak, Carrie Wilkerson, Deborah Cole Micek and Mari Smith.
From the event site:
“The Twitter Power Tweet-a-Thon is a 12 HOUR charity event that will be played out concurrently in two social media venues; a live video broadcast on Ustream.tv and on Twitter.com itself.”
The event promises “entertainment, Twitter tips, prize giveaways, zany antics, thousands of tweets & more surprises” and if you can make a donation, 100% of it will go to help bring clean drinking water to kids around the world.
I’ll be honest – before this, I had no idea that 4,500 kids die each day from not having clean water to drink – but WaterIsLife is trying to fix that, and that’s where ALL of today’s donations will go.
There’s no outlay to join in the festivities though. Just go to http://web-2.0-domination.com/tweetathon.htm and get signed up – you’ll see all the info and who’s all involved on the page there. Let’s all lend moral support, and those of us who can help by making a donation certainly should – we sure will be! See you there!
