My friend Darius first told me about this event via e-mail earlier this week, then my partner-in-crime Ms. Rasberry shared it with me again, so I figured I best take heed and find out what’s going on. You all know I’m a social butterfly, so I’m game for going out and doing something where I can meet new people. But this event is a little different. It allows attendees to help others, too.
The DC Twestival (a combination of the words “Twitter” and “festival“) is a time when you can put a face with the Twitter handle and can also raise funds for a deserving organization. This year, the beneficiary of the event is FAIR Fund, an organization in DC that brings attention and is fighting to end sexual exploitation and human trafficking around the globe.
As someone who is still a newbie to social media (ok, maybe not), I’m amazed at what can be done to bring people together for an awesome cause. This year’s event will be at ShadowRoom on Thursday, March 24 from 6-9 pm. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend 😥 but I do plan on donating. If you are in the DMV area, you should defintely make your way to this event. Even if you are not on Twitter, this is the perfect chance for you to go out, meet new people, and stop the exploitation of children all over the world.
Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
