On February 12th 2009, the whole world will use the internet to throw a party so that one in six of us doesn't have to drink dirty water.
TWESTIVAL: The first ever pan-global-flash-festival-for-a-cause.
In one week, 175 cities around the world including Hong Kong, Melbourne, London, and Los Angeles will be hosting the first ever Twestival, a world-wide gathering of Twitter communities to benefit Charity: Water, an organization that drills fresh-water-wells in countries where clean water isn't available. Right now 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean water, and we aim to change that by throwing the best party in LA.
One part meet-up, one part all-star comedy show and one part unforgettable dance party, Twestival LA is being held in the 2,000 capacity Club 740, downtown LA's historic old Globe Theater. Featuring celebrity guests from in and out of the blogosphere, nationally headlining comedians and DJs – 100% of all ticket sales will go directly to Charity: Water's efforts to dig clean drinking wells in impoverished nations.
(And In the 175 Twestivals being held around the world Twestival LA's is the biggest. Would you expect anything less from the City of Angels?)
With 100% of all staff donating their time on behalf of this incredible cause, Twestival LA is an event for the people, by the people. Please be a part of this historic event as the power of the human spirit and the connectivity of the internet combine to produce a flash-festival for a cause.
Where: Club 740, 753 S Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90014
When: Thurs, Feb 12th, 8pm - 2am
What: Comedy Show, Music, and Mingling. 21 and Over.
Cost: $10, $20, $50, $100 donations
(Lineup TBA. Stay tuned. It's going to be good.)
