Ways to Help Tweetsgiving: Lucky Number 7

Thanks to our great partners and sponsors, we estimate that DC is currently leading ticket sales and support for Tweetsgiving! Not far behind are Silicon Valley and Richmond. We have less than a week to go, so keep it coming!

Here are some ways you can help, whether you can attend the event or not.

  1. Purchase a ticket. Early bird ($5) tickets are gone, but $10 ones are available. All proceeds (minus 75 cent processing fee) go directly to Epic Change.
  2. Make a donation. Go above and beyond and make a donation beyond the ticket fee, or simply buy a ticket even if you know you cannot attend. Cash and check donations will also be accepted at the door – make checks payable to Epic Change, Inc. A mobile giving option will also be available this week.
  3. Bring an item for local DC battered women’s shelter, My Sister’s Place. Stop by CVS on your way to the HH and pick up something small. Items they particularly need are: gift cards to grocery stores, gift cards to Target or Wal-Mart, bed linens for twin sized beds (hello college sales), new pots and pans, new coats for children under 12 years old (Gap sale anyone?). See more ideas here.
  4. Tweet about Tweetsgiving. Spread the word and share your gratitude. Use hashtags for #tweetsgiving #dc #smcdc and #thankfulfor. Follow @tweetsgivingdc @thankfulfor @smcdc for more updates
  5. Tag a photo on Flickr for Tweetsgiving. Have something you’re #thankfulfor and want to show your #gratitude for #tweetsgiving? Make sure you tag it right and show the world!
  6. Show what you’re #thankfulfor. The great folks from Shiny Heart Ventures who bring you thankfulfor.com will be providing slips of paper at the HH where you can write in what you’re thankful for and share your gratitude with the world. Pictures will be taken and posted!
  7. Invite a friend to come. The more the merrier!

Bottom line: $10 ticket gets you into event and also provides donation to Tweetsgiving/Epic Change for a technology lab in Tanzania and global gratitude event. Make it local by bringing small items to donate to My Sister’s Place.

We have a great technology and social media community in DC, let’s celebrate together and share our gratitude!

Don’t forget to download the AWESOME flier for the event and spread the word on or off-line!
