Twestival 2010 to Utilize PayPal Giving Widgets During Global Charity Event

March 19, 2010

PayPal is a proud sponsor of Twitter Festival (Twestival 2010 Global), the largest social media giving event of its kind. Last year, the inaugural Twestival raised more than $250,000 USD in just a few short weeks for charity: water, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. This year, Twestival will be raising money for Concern Worldwide, an international humanitarian organization dedicated to meeting the needs of people living in extreme poverty.

"This year, for the first time, a network of social media giving widgets powered by PayPal will enable cities around the world to work in concert to raise funds for one cause," said Judy Chang, PayPal alliances and non-retail team . "The PayPal widgets will set the stage for friendly competition between cities and provide real time donation updates for each location."
