Update: Do check out http://twestival.blogadda.com for complete coverage of Twestival across the globe!
It is amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn’t matter who gets the credit. You could say this is one of the main reasons Twestival is what it is today. It’s because of the thousands of volunteers who dedicate their time, efforts and energies to make sure a global initiative like Twestival is successful in accomplishing its goal of helping the nonprofit.
In India, seven cities are participating on March 25th. And this is possible only because of the efforts of some of most wonderful people in the Indian Twitter ecosystem. They are the lead organizers and the most active volunteers. They are intent on putting India firmly in the list of the most generous countries of the world. All this with the help of Vaijayanthi KM (VJ) (@adropofwisdom) who is the Regional Co-Ordinator of Twestival for India. Do read the wonderful post where she explains how we can use “Social Media for Social Good‘.
