Beirut Twestival 2011

Thursday, Mar 24, 2011
9:00am -> 6:00pm
Tawlet Souk el Tayeb

A Twestival (or Twitter-Festival) is a single day, global movement which uses the power of social media to organize offline events that mobilize communities in support of a local cause.

Twestival was born out of the idea that if communities were able to collaborate on an international scale, but working from a local level, it could have a spectacular impact.

Since 2009, over 200 cities have participated in Twestival, raising close to $1.2 million for important causes like clean water and education. Twestival local events are coordinated 100% by volunteers and 100% of the funds raised through ticket sales and donations go directly to support charitable projects.

In Beirut, Tawlet Souk el Tayeb are hosting the event and this year to help support the Breast Cancer cause with psychological help for women with cancer and free mammography testing for women.
