Twestival was born in 2008 out of a desire for people who are connected online on Twitter to connect offline for a good cause. It has since grown from that first meetup in London to a worldwide presence where local Twestivals happen in communities across the globe. Twestival organizers have raised over $1.83 million in total to support 307 charities! Wow.
Twestival Houston: Supporting a Great Local Cause!
Each year, Twestival Houston is organized by local volunteers. The Twestival team puts the vote up to Twitter to choose a local charity to support. This year’s nonprofit recipient was the Ronald McDonald House of Houston – who also happens to be a Tendenci client (their new site is in development, look for more coming soon!).
The event was full of local beer (courtesy of Buffalo Bayou Brewery), local food, live music, and lots of opportunities to support RMH Houston with donations and raffle prizes!
HUGE THANKS to Mandy Graessle (aka @favouritethings) and all the volunteers for all their hard work on putting this event together!!
Here are a few of our pictures from the event:
