What is a “Tweetup” ? It is a gathering of twitter users ( and even non twitter users) who meet in person. Sometimes for a purpose and sometimes just because. And alot of times we meetup and just tweet! 🙂
Tonight is a special Tweetup – The Hampton Roads Tweetup Group is making blankets for the homeless. The supplies just came in last night and we are excited to make this happen!
***Donate Time, Money or Both***
Please bring a pair of socks for admission. We will need scissors and large trash bags as well.
We are partnering with Hope In The Upper Room in Virginia Beach.
Our goal is 100 blankets – I have not found a local fabric supplier for under $7.99/yard. We need 400 yards! I am in dialog with a supplier out of state that has offered us $4.45/yard and free shipping! That cuts the cost from $3,196 to $1,780. They have ensured delivery by the 2nd. We need to raise the $1,780 by THIS MONDAY to order the fabric and provide warmth to the homeless this holiday season.
