What is Twestival?
A Twestival (or Twitter-Festival) is a 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 $1.75 million for over 275 important causes like clean water and education. Twestival events are coordinated 100% by volunteers and 100% of the funds raised through ticket sales and donations go directly to support charitable projects.
This is the 2nd time that Qatar is hosting it, after the inaugural one in 2011 where QR 87,600 was raised - that placed us in the Top 10 cities worldwide. It's coming back to Qatar this year. I
