32. DC Twestival in support of Fair Fund
I think it’s time to clear something up. If you’re searching for the regular “Things to do in DC” site with the same list of overpriced/stuffy/pretentious hangouts then you’re in the wrong spot. There are plenty of DC sites where you’ll find that in spades, and many of them are quite good.
This site is a simple spin off of a little facebook page we started, 365 Soulful Things to do in DC where we highlight the places and things in DC that we find truly moving and inspiring. And there is simply nothing more emotionally fulfilling than supporting the outfits in the city that exist for one reason and one reason only:
To Do Good.
And that brings us to today’s awesome experience:
DC Twestival in support of Fair Fund
On a single day, March 24th, folks from all over the world get offline and get into their cities for fun events to generate donations for worthy projects.
For this year’s DC Twestival 100% of the donations go to support Fair Fund.
A Bit about Fair Fund
“FAIR Fund is a Washington, DC, based international nonprofit organization that works to educate and prevent human trafficking and sexual violence in the lives of youth, specifically girls, around the world. “
100% of the ticket sales from Twestival will go to Fair Fund to help with their DC project, Tell Your Friends. This will help 1,000 DC children through a month long program teaching young children about human trafficking and sexual abuse.
You get to enjoy the DC area while supporting and protecting the next generation. I can’t think of single thing I’d rather be doing on March 24th than going out into the city and supporting DC’s Local Twestival while helping to secure a safer future for DC area kids.
I’ll absolutely 100% be there and I hope you will too. See you then!
Please ignore the request for you to subscribe that follows. I really would rather not ask you to subscribe to this blog on a post like this one, but the sign-up box is a site-wide widget that I haven’t figured out how to disable on individual pages. Instead, please go here to donate to Twestival and Fair Fund and let’s help secure a safe future for DC kids!
