Tweetsgiving: Bring your grateful heart

JD LasicaYou may have heard of Tweetsgiving, the 48-hour event created by nonprofit Epic Change that encourages participants to express our thanks using online tools and at live events. Launched last year, this year’s event ends in a few hours but has already made an impact.

The video above shows how EpicChange, with a recent grant from IdeaBlob, has been making a difference at the primary school in Tanzania where last year’s TweetsGiving classroom was built. (If you’re up early on Thanksgiving, see if there’s a live stream about the event on Ustream.)

What am I thankful for? Thousands of things. A few of them:

Family and friends

Bobby

Casey

Traveling Geeks

• Heroes, like Mama Lucy

Lemon trees

• Christmas lights

Philanthropists and do-gooders

• The Female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird

Winter

Summer

Lots more.
