Twesival Galway is being run again tomorrow night. This time around it’s in support of the GSPCA, and there’s a nicely made video below to show you why.
Twestival Local is :
…a global series of events organized by volunteers around the world under short timescales, which bring people offline for a great cause. Twestival is run 100% by volunteers and independently from any not-for-profit; although the organizing teams do work closely to outline an achievable and measurable fundraising target.
Events are being run all over the world, and I know that a huge amount of work has been done to get Galway’s up-and-running; from sorting out a venue, to looking for sponsors & pushing ticket sales. This time around, you don’t even need to be from Galway to participate – you can contribute by buying one of the “Sorry I can’t make it tickets”, and even win prizes (like this nice iPod Touch that I want, sponsored by Gold Sponsor LookWest.ie).
I was at the last Twestival in Galway back in February, and it was great to meet so many nice people at it; including a few that weren’t using Twitter and didn’t know anything about it. So, you’re pretty much guaranteed a good night if you drop in for a beer or two.
So, if you want to find out more, check out the Twestival Galway site (or on Twitter). There are still some tickets left, so you can buy them now, or if you can’t make it, take a look at the small donation you can make instead.
