On Thursday, February 12th, those in Vancouver that use the popular microblogging and communications tool, Twitter, will gather and connect to fundraise for a global cause. In just one month, from volunteer effort alone, global Twitter-based charity event Twestival has created events in 175+ cities, predicted to raise $1 million for the 1.1 billion people in the world who can't access clean drinking water. Growing beyond all expectations since launching in January 2009, Twestival takes place for 24 hours on February 12th, everywhere from Bethlehem to Birmingham, Beijing to Boston, as up to 20,000 come together inspired by community and charity. "We at Twitter are constantly amazed at the daily initiatives, events, movements and moments we see on Twitter, but Twestival has blown us away. The global and city teams have done an amazing job and we're as excited as everyone!" - Twitter Co-Founder Evan Williams. Vancouver's Twestival sold out within 24 hours but more tickets will be made available on the day of the event, bringing attendance numbers up to over 200.
