    One in six people on the planet does not have clean drinking water.  The lack of clean drinking water kills more people than war and is the source of preventable diseases like typhoid and dysentery.  To prevent these deaths, it is just a matter of drilling wells to depths where the water is clean.


    $20 can give water to someone for 25 years.


    Sad?  Don't be.  Over 100 cities all over the planet are using the microblogging service Twitter to collaborate and raise money for charity:water.  To celebrate in true Austin fashion, our Twestival will feature:


    1.) A Sumo Suit Smackdown on livestreamed TV.

    2.) Pics by Michael Cummings from dreaminpictures.com.

    3.) A raffle.  One free raffle ticket comes with every entry ticket and you can choose the items you want to potentially win. 

    4.) A speech by someone from www.aglimmerofhope.org, a partner of charity:water's who actually drills wells in Ethiopia.  A Glimmer of Hope has given water to over a million people.

    5.) A live performance by Austin's own T Bird and the Breaks.  This dynamic band was picked as one of Austin's greatest new bands in 2008 by both "The Sound and the Jury" Awards at ACL and by the Austin Music Awards.

    6.) Free Stuff!  Everyone there is going to get a free Jungle Disk license to back up all their cool pics, video, and anything else on their computer.  The retail value of this is $20.  You will also receive a coupon for Viva Chocolato for one free gelato.  Yum.

    7.) A livestream to www.liveearth.org, which has streamed some of most well viewed livestreamed concerts in history.  This site belongs to Al Gore.


    Our host Josh Shepherd of the Backline Show will ensure we make a difference and that a good time will be had by all. So give back, have fun with your Tweeps, and spread the word.  We are looking to pack Aces Lounge and raise a lot of money for this very important cause.
