This Thursday, folks from around the world will be gathering to support a great cause. The Pittsburgh Twitter community will be getting together at local bars, restaurants, bowling alleys, malls, movie theaters, parks etc… to raise money for Charity:Water.The event is being dubbed as a “Twestival“.Charity:Water is a non-profit organization that helps to bring clean, safe drinking water to those that cannot otherwise afford or obtain it. Let’s break the numbers down… 1.1 billion people don’t have clean drinking water. That is 1 in every 6 people. WOW!
The event, sponsored by BarkleyREI, an interactive agency in Pittsburgh’s Strip District, will take place at Downey’s House on Stubenville Pike in Robinson Township on Thursday, February 12th. From 6-9, you can enjoy food and drinks, live music courtesy of Juan Vasquez from Sauce.
