On Thursday March 25, 2010, in cities all around the world, people came together to support the importance of education via Twestival. BookRenter was excited to be part of the over $375,000 the event has raised to date.
The Twestival event was to support Concern Worldwide. Concern Worldwide is an international humanitarian organization dedicated to reducing suffering and ending extreme poverty.
What is a Twestival you ask (we had to ask the same thing!)? A Twestival is a worldwide event that brings hundreds of cities together to rally and create awareness around an important cause. Last Thursday’s event was to raise awareness for the 72 million children in the world who do not have the opportunity to go to school. Concern Worldwide was selected by the Twestival Global team and local organizers to be the recipient because of their comprehensive and well-respected approach to education. You can learn more about Concern Worldwide here.
We look forward to participating in future events and recommend you do the same. Giving back in small ways can add up to a big impact.
Here are the results of the fundraiser as of March 30, 2010:
