My friends Sonya Schweitzer (@socialsonya), Leah Kaiz (@gypsealeah) and Karen Clements (@karenclements) are hosting a Tweetsgiving event on Tuesday, November 24th. The tweetup, with a goal of raising money for the enrichment and aide for the children of our world, is being hosted by Gordon Biersch in Town Center in Virginia Beach.
If you don’t really care about donating for this cause, come out anyway. $10 is well worth the networking and camaraderie of fellow tweeters of Hampton Roads.

About Epic Change (from their website):
1. Is Epic Change a 501(c)(3) organization?
Yes, Epic Change is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and our federal tax identification number is 26-0155393.
2. Why should I donate to Epic Change?
By donating your dollars to Epic Change, you are making a “perpetual” gift. Because we reuse repaid loans to fund future projects, your donation may be used to support the construction of a school in Africa and, upon subsequent repayment, the expansion of a hospital in Peru or the improvement of a program in the United States to serve the homeless, for example.
Additionally, unlike many organizations that perform global service, we are not affiliated with any particular political agenda or religious denomination. To avoid potential conflicts of interest and ensure our organization doesn’t participate in undermining indigenous cultural norms and beliefs, we don’t promote propaganda, proselytization or evangelization of any kind.
