A Maui Blog Supports Honolulu Twestival


The Aloha State is proud to be represented in Twestival 2009!  Honolulu organizers had done an amazing job organizing this event in just a few weeks. Kudos to everyone involved in making it possible for the Aloha State to be represented on this worldwide event for charity. Here are some of the basic information or details on the Honolulu Twestival:

  • Who Can Attend: Anyone interested in getting together with friends for pupus, drinks, and music, all for a good cause! But certainly all Twitter users hoping to use social media to bring social change.
  • When: Thursday, Feb. 12, 2009 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. pau hana party!
  • Where: Oceans 808 at Restaurant Row (former Ocean Club space), 500 Ala Moana Blvd. [Map]

I was initially going to fly to Oahu to attend this special event. I was ready to buy my plane ticket yesterday when some unexpected events happened and issues came up which unabled me to fly over tomorrow (I’m car-less starting today, hubby had a last minute meeting scheduled that day (told about it yesterday) with same date and time so no one to take care of kids and drive me to the airport, etc.). So in lieu of me flying over, I purchased five (5) tickets to be given away so that five Honolulu residents who would like to go to this event can go. Please leave a comment here if you are interested on the free ticket or DM me at Twitter (@amauiblog). I will need your e-mail address to forward the e-ticket.

Twestival – Charity: Water


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.
