Happy Tweetsgiving!

Join fellow Blip.fm DJs for Tweetsgiving, a 48-hour global expression of gratitude, starting Tuesday, November 24th at 9:00am (Pacific)/12:00pm (Eastern) through November 26th. Blip.fm is proud to be a sponsor of this event.

TweetsGiving (http://tweetsgiving.epicchange.org/) is a global celebration that seeks to change the world through the power of gratitude.  This 48-hour event encourages everyone to express their thanks by using online tools (such as Blip.fm) and attending live events. Money raised will benefit a school started by “Mama Lucy” Kamptoni, a Tanzanian woman who used her income from selling chickens to build a school that now serves over 300 children near her home in Arusha.

Just blip and tweet your favorite Blip.fm tunes that express gratitude. Include #tweetsgiving and http://bit.ly/TGonline in your tweet. For example, you could tweet: “So grateful to share the holidays with friends! #tweetsgiving - http://bit.ly/TGonline - ♫ http://blip.fm/~gr9yv [We Are Family]
