Yes, we had the crafty twitter party (#monsterfun, which went down a storm) and now it is time for a Charity Twitter Party… now don’t groan, charity is a good thing – and we don’t want your money, we just want your voice… your voice to shout out about a very important cause. Your voice to be heard. Your voice to, maybe, even get Twitter trending?
Can we do it? YES WE CAN!
So… what is it all about?
Save The Children & The No Child Born to Die campaign of course:
Read more about it on the This is Me meme (and join in if you like)
More importantly sign the petition
As you may also know, Chris from Thinly Spread will be heading to Mozambique to find out more about a “cold” vaccination and the challenges of this in a hot country.
Her voice is our voice.
Her voice is your voice.
Now let us use twitter to make us heard.
And to make it easier… we want to have some fun:
We are going to host a Virtual Tea Party and we are going to invite Chris to tea.
Whilst Chris is in Mozambique, she will log into twitter and join us on a chat about Tea Parties..
We are inviting everyone to attend and bring along their top tea party tips/recipes/solutions to disasters if children are involved, favourite party games, dealing with difficult guests, solutions to the party bag problem, baking tips etc I am sure you all have tons of info to share.
