Celebrate Twestival and Water Around the World

On Thursday, February 12, 2009, I will be joining my fellow Portland, Oregon, blogging, social media, and fans in the , part of the international fundraising and social conciousness-raising for water sustainability with 175 plus communities around the world participating in Twestival.

I describe it more in “Twestivals in 175+ Cities Around the World Thursday, February 12, 2009.”

The international event will help raise money for charity: water, a non-profit organization that works to bring clean, safe drinking water to developing nation citizens by funding sustainable clean water solutions. I’ve talked to a lot of people within the WordPress Community who will be participating, in person at the social events, video blogging, podcasting, and just blogging about them, or will be participating from a far by the different online and social virtual activities and blogging about water sustainability and conservation issues.

Will you be participating?

For those living in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, you can join me and others at the Twestivals in , Vancouver, BC, and Seattle, or jump a plane and join my dear friends in Honolulu or San Francisco.

PDX WordPress Fans: Thursday night is also the Portland WordPress User Group at CubeSpace. It should be a rocking party! The topic is WordPressMU, but expect a lot of talk about Twestival, social media events, blog networks, and more!

I will be reporting on the event here and on the , along with millions of others.

    There’s also a fantastic year-long social media for good cause called 12for12k Challenge.

    Just as worthy as Twestival and benefiting 12 charities throughout 2009.

    I love it how so many people are using “social media” and WordPress to help out their different causes for humanity.

    Next year, I think we’ll have to double the price. Tickets sold out in something like two hours, the “reserve” tranche of tickets sold out in something like fifteen minutes. Should be an awesome event!

    And FearlessCity will be doing videos; if we’re lucky, we’ll even be livestreaming from the Vancouver Twestival!

    We have just reached a point in our theme business where we can start to donate a percentage of all our WordPress theme sales to charity. Our chosen charity is charitywater.org which is mentioned above.

    We are really excited about being able to give a little something back. You can see progress of our first charity water project here.
