Reposted from Mashable, original post by Barb Dybwad.  A great way to bring the power of the masses to help in your community!


If you're interested in doing good on Twitter, youve got an amazing opportunity coming up just around the corner.

Where Twestival Global brings together charity-minded Twitterers around the world in support of a single cause, Twestival Local brings the focus back to doing good work in your own community.


Over the next three days from September 10 through the 13th, volunteers will be hosting fundraising events for local charities in 133 officially registered cities. Check out the map to find out what events are happening near you and how to participate.

But even if there isnt an official group organized for your city or town, theres still a way you can get involved in helping promote Twestival initiatives, building community around ideas for local change, and ideally gathering together some volunteers to organize actual projects on the fly.

The Twestival Project initiative has been organized to encourage and promote smaller-scale or ad hoc projects that can be done during the run of Twestival Local. To get involved, you can join up with otherTwestival Projects already underway in your city. Or, take the initiative to start a project in your city.

If youre strapped for ideas, check out the growing idea bin for inspiration. Or, if you have some ideas to contribute, tweet them with the hashtag #twestivalgood to get added to the list.

Mashable  is a proud global media partner of Twestival and were looking forward to helping make a positive change at both the local and international levels (Mashables Ben Parr and myself will be in attendance at the Los Angeles Twestival, please come and say hi!). Be sure to check out the embedded video below from Causecast to get an idea of some of the amazing projects going on around the globe this weekend, and let us know how you plan to get involved in the comments.

If youre one of the lucky 133 global cities already hosting Twestival Locals, be sure to get your ticket today!
