TwestivalKC is tomorrow night. Are you going?
Have you heard? 1.1 Billion people on our planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. That's 1 in 6 of us. That is surreal, and certainly unacceptable. Now, imagine if one of those 6 people was your grandparent, parent, sibling, niece, friend, coworker. Would you do something to help that person? You bet your bottom dollar you would.
It is time for change, people. We cannot continue to sit back and let someone else do it. We have to step up to the plate and hit the grand slam out of the park.
The Kansas City community, along with 160 cities across the globe, has organized a very important event tomorrow night, February 12th. It's called Twestival, and 100% of the proceeds go to charity:water, an organization that contributes all donations received to clean water projects around the world.
TwestivalKC is taking place at Tower Tavern from 6-9pm. Tickets are $25 (ask about our student rate) and can be purchased here. Once inside, you will have access to complimentary pizza, Boulevard beer and some rockin' live music, not to mention exposure to the energy and passion of other like-minded individuals. The first 50 people in the door will receive a charity:water bracelet as a momento. If you can't make it to the gathering, you can still donate.
Did you know that $20 will give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 years? If you're still not convinced we need your help, please take a minute and watch this video.
Come join us tomorrow night. You'll be glad you did. See you there!
