charity: water is a non-profit bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
Tweet. Meet. Give.
On 12 February 2009 202 cities around the world held Twestivals, bringing together the Twitter community for an evening of fun and to raise money and awareness for charity: water.
The total raised from the Global Twestival stands at $250,000 USD on 18 February 2009 - confirmation from over 80 cities is still pending.
$250,000 USD = 55 water projects in Ethiopia, Uganda and India - clean water for just over 17,000 people.
Amounts will be calculated for each city on this website once the money has been received by charity: water.
Fundraising for Twestival has been extended, so please continue to donate.
At the start of April, the first well funded by Twestival donations will be drilled in Ethiopia and we will be documenting this and sharing updates online.
