The smart way for Minnesotans to discover, support and engage with charities.
Posted on 6/6/12 by Jeff Achen
On June 14, hundreds of communities across America will compete to win $30,000 in awards for local nonprofits.
Twive and Receive is a 24-hour online giving competition that teams Twitter activists and locally supporting nonprofits to fundraise and benefit their hometown. Each city will be represented by one cause.
Communities fundraise using Twitter, other social networks, and electronic media. From today through June 13, they'll be activating their communities to support their preferred local nonprofit on June 14.
Twive and Receive will be held simultaneously across the United States for 24 hours on June 14, starting at 12:00AM Pacific Time (3:00AM Eastern Time)! The top three nonprofits that raise the most money* get a share of the $30,000 award pool.
