It’s been roughly seven months since our last Twestival in Edmonton. In February, Twestival attendees helped raise over $1000 for Charity:Water, a non-profit organization that helps ensure clean water is accessible in developing nations. While the majority of attendees were users of Twitter, it definitely wasn’t a prerequisite to take part in the event.
This time around, Twestival is set up for participating cities to choose their own cause. After an online vote, it was decided that the Youth Emergency Shelter Society will be the charity of choice. The details of the event are as follows:
WHAT: Twestival Local 2009
WHEN: Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 6:00pm

We’re asking for a minimum donation of $20, but feel free to donate more! You can buy tickets online here, or donate at the door.
Hope to see you there!
