#YEGcleanup

April 19, 2009

Group Shot

Today I had the awesome experience of picking up garbage with fellow twitterers. May not sound thrilling to some, but it was really refreshing to be with people who chose to do a dirty job because they love the city they live in, and want to be a part of something special. Thanks to @CaryWill for organizing it and rubbing in the fact that he was the only one to get an official Green Capital City Cleanup shirt. Also in attendance were: @Out_Inc, @JDarrah, @TheSpinDoctor, @StuporStar and dog Rosie, @mastermaq, @JodieGiese (that’s IE, IE), @SirThinks, @bingofuel, and me, @ZoomJer.

I liked how the event was organized on short notice, and in particular the service used to organize it, twtvite.com. Great service that I hope to see used more in the future. It was also neat to see how @inews880 picked up on the story and had an article publised before we were even done, complete with the group photo taken on my phone at the start of the event! I love how lightning fast everything is on Twitter!

Royal LePage Shelter Foundation

Royal LePage Shelter Foundation

The full write-up:

Inspiration can be found where you least expect it. For me it was at the Royal LePage Annual Sales Rally & Awards Ceremony, where I had the pleasure to hear the director of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation speak about this amazing charity and those who have supported it. I was immediately motivated and actually wrote down a goal to raise $3000 for the foundation in a way that no other REALTOR® has done before – a “tweetup”!
Twitter has taken the world by storm. Politicians, celebrities, executives, and everyday citizens are using it to interact, learn, and laugh. It is experiencing a huge growth in popularity as more and more people find value in its networking capabilities. Mainstream media outlets are now using Twitter to get information out faster than ever before. I have been using it to interact with hundreds of new people online, and more importantly, meet them in person through Tweetups (in-person meetings organized via Twitter.com). Following the simple model of the extremely successful international tweetup, “twestival” (raising over $250,000 USD in over 200 cities, an average of $1,500 CAD per city), I aim to raise $3000. With a little extra support, I think I might even be able to break my goal. That’s where you come in. Do you own or work for a company that could earmark a few hundred or even thousand dollars for the Shelter Foundation? The beauty of how it is organized is that I am able to direct 100% of the funds to Edmonton shelters and make a difference locally.
The tweetup is named “#twilightYEG” and it will be Wednesday 20 May 20 2009 at 7 pm at Hundred Bar Kitchen on Rice Howard Way and 100 St (visit http://100.ZoomJer.com). I have reserved the entire loft, so you won’t have to worry about finding a seat. Open your heart to women and children in need simply by attending the event. Admission is $25, and you are requested to pay in advance as space is limited, and you don’t even need to be on Twitter to attend (but don’t blame me if you decide to join during the event). The evening will prove to be full of fun, social networking, door prizes, and all for a fabulous cause. Plus, there might even be some special guests. I look forward to receiving your RSVP and seeing you at #twilightYEG. If you want to see how I use Twitter, visit http://Twitter.com/ZoomJer.
