Many of you will be familiar with the inspiring story of Twestival, As the worlds largest global grassroots social media fundraising initiative to date, volunteers have raised close to $1.2 million for 137 nonprofits since 2009. All local events are organized 100% by volunteers; 100% of all ticket sales & donations go direct to projects. This year Twestival is going 'Local' in cities around the world on Thursday 24 March 2011. Events for Twestival Local will raise funds and awareness for local nonprofits that organizers identify for having an incredible impact within their own community.
