if i can, i’d love to go to the one in charlotte. it all depends on my money situation. that and i have class until 2 on thursdays so i’m gonna try and see what i can do.
SO, if i can’t go, i’m posting about it here in the hopes that someone somewhere will go. you can help out by donating money to charity:water, entering their t-shirt design competition, uploading/buying music from twestival.fm, or by attending a Twestival near you. or all 4. :)
Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease, and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
Many communities in developing nations often have a plentiful supply of clean drinking water just below the ground, but no way to get to it.
This is where charity: water and their partner organizations come in. Drilling a well can cost from $4,000 – $12,000 USD and many living on less than $1 a day cannot afford one in their community, even if the money is combined.
Twestival cities might consider setting a goal to raise enough money from their event to fund a well project in a developing country, starting at $4,000 USD.
if you can help out, DO IT!!!
