Happy Tweetsgiving!

UniversalGiving have been on Twitter for only a matter of weeks but it has been hugely rewarding so far. The information that people share and the sheer sense of camaraderie almost has been wonderful. In a nutshell, there are some very nice people on Twitter and a lot of folks who want to make a difference. We are thankful for followers like these:

The Women’s Mosaic are ‘motivating women of every background to RISE UP and ROCK THE WORLD!’

Business Fights Poverty is a ‘network of 1000+ professionals passionate about fighting poverty through good business.’

Get Beyond Firewood are doing amazing work trying to help refugee women and girls who risk their lives daily as they search for firewood to cook for their families.

People Helping People offer ‘a hand up for adults with disabilities and extreme income challenges.’

Operation NICE ‘was initiated to remind you that a little NICE goes a long way.’

Proof Positivity are ‘all about positive news, community service, and helping others out.’

And Cars4Causes are “The Charity That Gives to Charities”.

This is just a small selection of great people who deserve a follow. But the one everybody on Twitter should support today is @tweetsgiving. Tweetsgiving is ‘a Twitter celebration of gratitude and giving created by Epic Change, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The project aims to demonstrate the power of the social web by raising $10,000 in 48 hours to build a classroom in Tanzania.’

As of me writing this post, the tally was at $3000 raised so far. Incredible! The power of Twitter at its finest.
