Tomorrow Your Tweets Can Make a Difference

I’m just as guilty as the rest of the twitterverse. I actually think that my little tweet will gain attention, will start a conversation, will change something that I care about. Well, mostly no RTs, MTs, DMs or other acknowledgments glorify my existence on Twitter. But that all changes tomorrow.

Share Our Strength a national nonprofit, connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives will be holding its annual Dine Out for No Kid Hungry events on September 18th – 24th. But, their tweeting campaign—TwEAT OUT—starts TOMORROW, MAY 4TH by trying to recruit restaurants around the country to join in.

In 2010, over 4,000 restaurants joined together to raise more than $1.5 million for Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. This year, the organization wants to rally over 5,000 restaurant locations to participate in the program to help raise funds for the fight to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.
