LONDON February 10th : In just one month, from volunteer effort alone, global Twitter-based charity event Twestival has created events in 175+ cities, predicted to raise $1 million for the 1.1billion people in the world who can’t access clean drinking water. Growing beyond all expectations since launching in January 2009, Twestival takes place for 24 hours on February 12th, everywhere from Bethlehem to Birmingham, Beijing to Boston, as up to 20,000 come together inspired by community and charity.

Organised 100% by volunteers connected on micro-blogging site Twitter, the simultaneous events will raise money for charity: water, a non-profit organisation bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. By rallying together globally, under short timescales, for a single aim on the same day, the Twestival team hopes to bring awareness that one in six of us on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water.
