Twestival Manila 2011 Supports JeepneED

Please support a good cause ...

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.

Get involved by contributing your time, talent and resources. Get a ticket for your local event, donate or tweet about it. Cities are always looking for volunteers to help on the night or sponsors who want to underwrite the event or provide prizes. Tweet them and get involved!

The first ever Twestival in the Philippines will happen on March 24, 8:00 p.m. at Le Bistro Vert on Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. More info about this event can be found here. Proceeds will benefit JeepneED, a mobile science and tech lab for rural schools in the Philippines.

This organization's mission is to provide community-driven, sustainable, in-school support in science and technology on a redesigned jeepney that runs on used vegetable oil.

JeepneED serves as an engaging outdoor learning lab with 10 netbooks, a 3G hub for Internet connectivity, a printer and scanner, a projector, and other basic science materials for a community of 8 to 12 rural public schools.
