This week, charities can nominate themselves to be the charity for Twestival Local in September 2009. The first Global Twestival on February 12th 2009, was a groundbreaking charity fundraiser, uniting Twitter users in 202 cities around the world raising $250k for one charity in 24 hours.
There will be a global charity for Twestival Global next year, but the next Twestival is a Twestival Local. The organisers want to support something local, something that matters to Londoners.
A charity that understands the power of social media, that can really engage with twitterers and capitalise on the huge awareness is being sought to be the partner in this event.
Charity nominations for Twestival London Local are open til 11pm this Sunday 26th July. Nominations can be made here: http://3.ly/HbN and all the info required is there.
