Twitter Blanket Drive

Greetings bloggers.

This week we are doing something a bit different.

Coming up soon is Twitter Blanket Drive.
A wonderful initiative started by @MelanieMinnaar last year.  She thought it would be wonderful if each person from Twitter came to a tweetup and brought with them one blanket which they could donate to charity.
It was started last year and this year it is nearly time for the next one.

There will be Twitter Blanket Drive events all over South Africa on the 4th of June.
If you would like to find out where your nearest one is head on over to the website
and check out

Click on the venue option to find the nearest place near you.  It promises to be loads of fun.
So for those of you on Twitter start using the #TBD hashtag to promote the event.

You can even add the TBD icon to your avatar.

When you get to the event take some pics and upload them to Twitter with the hashtag #TBD.
Check in using FourSquare and tell all your friends on other social networking events about it.

In the Durban area there will be quite a few events so take your choice from:

@LunaRossa_DBN which is in Gateway shopping centre.  From 11h00 to 16h00.
Your host is @waewest

@Livingstons_DBN which is in the Glenore Centre, Glenashley, just before La Lucia
Your host is @askashe  Meet at 18h00

Even down the South Coast there will be one at @bistroramsgate in Ramsgate.
Your host is @SouthCoastLive
Meet at 18h00.

If you cannot make it to these events you are welcome to drop off your blankets
at your nearest Williams Hunt Dealership around the country.
See the website for the nearest one to you.

I'm taking part in Twitter Blanket Drive.

Are you?

Please pass this blog onto as many people as you know to help spread the news.
It's cold out and the poorest of the poor will really appreciate a blanket.
