Life is flying by so fast lately!
Things keep slipping up on me. Things I am really looking forward to… like tomorrow night! The Wilmington Twestival 2011!
The event is going to be at a local place, Press 102, I have been dying to check out with people who I am really looking forward to seeing again. Its starting to amaze me watching all the various people who are “attending” on facebook. The ones I would expect & some familiar faces I never would have expected to attend.
The event is benefiting an organization that I have mentioned on this blog before – the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina at Wilmington!
I will let the Twestival Planners give you the details…
“Join us on March 24th for a great event Benefitting the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, Wilmington Branch. Admission is just a single non-perishable food item. That will get you into an event with live music, free food, and great prizes! Each additional donation you make will win you extra raffle tickets as well as TweetBucks to spend on games and more raffle tickets.
On Thursday 24 March 2011, people in hundreds of citie…s around the world will come together offline to rally around the important cause of Education by hosting local events to have fun and create awareness. Twestival™ (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good. All of the local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go direct to projects. This year Twestival goes local with a focus on local charities across the globe.
Sadly, hunger remains a serious problem in central and eastern North Carolina. In these counties, more than 500,000 struggle each day to provide enough food for their families. It is for this reason that we have chosen the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC as our charity for Twestival Local. Nearly 29 percent of the people served by the Food Bank’s network are children, and another 8 percent are elderly.”
So if you are in the Wilmington NC area, GO! All the cool people will be! 😉
Also along with taking some canned goods, I will be donating a couple of sets of cards to be raffled off. Each pack of 10 cards will be a mixture of some of my photographs from the local area. If you are interested in seeing them they can be found at my Etsy store.
I promise to update you on how the event goes, but how can it be anything but amazing? Good people plus GREAT CAUSE = TERRIFIC TIMES!
Really feeling the spirit of celebrating and feeling so grateful for all the wonderful things I have in life, like knowing I can eat regularly & am able to help out through events like this one. I am so glad there are people who are willing, skilled and able to dedicate their energy & time to organize events like this one and to operate organizations that help others.
