Give Thanks, Help Kids in Tanzania #Tweetsgiving

with No Comments

Last year for Thanksgiving, Twitter gathered around a cause to raise $10,000 for a small Tanzanian school. It was a simple rally to help, to give a few kids that are a world away a shot at education, a chance for a new start. [Donate this year, details at the bottom of the post]

Today that school has grown from 6 students to over 350. The students are on Twitter, they are blogging, and now have laptops and some nice books.
