Today is Twestival Day!

Little Rock is among several cities across the country taking part in this Twitter-based fund-raiser for nonprofits. In Arkansas, the Little Rock Twestival benefits Reach Out and Read Arkansas, which works to promote literacy through early intervention.The group trains doctors and nurses to advise parents about the importance of reading aloud to their children and to give books to children at pediatric check-ups.

The organizers of our very own #LRTweetups are presenting tonight’s event, taking place at 5:30 at the Clinton Presidential Library. Admission is $10 and a book for a child. You can get your tickets now here. It’ll promises to be a fun, #LRTweetup-like evening to benefit a great organization.

More: The Little Rock Twestival is just one of 46 events taking place across the country between Sept. 10-13 as part of the nationwide Twestival movement. A Twestival, or Twitter-Festival, is a global series of events organized by volunteers around the world under short timescales, in which people meet offline for one night, have fun and raise money for a local cause. More information about the national movement can be found at  http://twestival.com.

RORA currently has four clinics that have applied for acceptance into its program, but the nonprofit is unable to provide the resources to begin distributing books in these clinics. Twestival can change that! We’re asking everyone, not just people in the Twitter community, to help us raise money and collect books for this important cause!
