Fairly under the radar (until now!), Rob Baker and I have been working on hosting the Boston TweetsGiving event.
TweetsGiving is an annual event for Epic Change, an organization that helps “hopeful people in need share their stories to acquire resources that will improve their lives.” It’s not just another fund raising event, though; the Epic Change founder Stacey Monk‘s higher goal of TweetsGiving is to spread gratitude, thankfulness for all there is to be thankful for.
That is definitely an idea I can get behind.
The first and hardest part of organizing the event has been accomplished: we have a location! Microsoft has graciously offered to host Tweetsgiving Boston at their New England Research and Development (NERD!) center. The event will take place Tuesday, November 24, from 6:30 to 9:00.
But wait, you say, that’s the week of Thanksgiving. Exactly, we say! And it’s the Tuesday before, which means you’ll still be in town – so join us! You can register for #TGBos (as we’ve dubbed it on Twitter) on the Boston group of the Tweetsgiving community.
Interested in supporting Epic Change beyond an event ticket? You can be a Top Turkey or an Event Sponsor. For more information, check the Tweetsgiving Boston group, or email me – gradon AT gradontripp DOT com.
But it’s not just about what I’m thankful for. What about you? Maybe it’s your zombie kids, or your parents, or big shaggy dogs, or all those mustaches in November, or (if you’re Mike Germano) the Yankees. Let us know what you’re most thankful for, on your blogs, or on Twitter (make sure you include #Tweetsgiving in your tweets).
Thanks to YOU, the Boston community. Without all of you, none of these great events could take place. We’ll see you on the 24th!
