twestivalHave you ever been to a “tweetup”?  That’s a networking get together that is organized by users on Twitter that brings adorkable geeks, like you, together for drinks and camaraderie.

As I’ve share on my last post there is a global charity event that is harnessing the power of Twitter and tweetups for a great cause.  The NYCTwestival – scheduled for Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at West Side bar M:2 – is just one of more than 100 events scheduled around the world to support charity:water, an organization dedicated to providing developing nations with access to clean drinking water.

The first Twestival was held September 2008 in London and now it has grown to this present event that’s now Global.

I have my ticket… do you?  You should.  The NYCTwestival features an open bar at M:2 until 9 p.m. and there will be live music too.  The first 400 tickets are available for $20 right here. After that, ticket prices increase to $40 and $60. VIP tickets are $100. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to charity:water.

Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in six of us.  I have plenty of water and I bet you do too.  Make a difference and help!

NYC Twestival 2009 is just under three weeks away!

If you’ve been a Twitter user for a while, you’ve probably heard about “tweetups,” real-life meetups organized through Twitter’s community platform. The NYC Twestival 2009 is like a tweetup with the aim of social change and fundraising.

The NYC Twestival 2009 is like a charity event 2.0.  There’s no three-digit ticket price, no black-tie dress code ( I might wear my tux because I look adorkable in it).  Tickets will be for sale (at an incredibly reasonable price!) very shortly and I’ll post an update as soon as I have more information and you can always follow me on twitter @AdorkableGeek or use he link below.

Hope to see you on Feb 12, 2009!
