Launch and Learn Twitter Event to Benefit Food Bank

The Ralston Chamber and Little Mountain Web Design will host a “LAUNCH and Learn” on 14 November at 11:30 AM at the Ralston Library, located at 5555 South 77th St., Ralston, NE 68127.

Bring your lunch and laptops. We will provide the workshop, coffee and water.

communities, canned goods and funds will be raised for Food Bank for the Heartland.

While the workshop is free, please bring a holiday item canned good and a suggested donation for $15 for the Food Bank as part of our “Social Media for a Social Cause” campaign.

Twitter Stories: Haiti

In Haiti on 13 January 2010, a devastating earthquake hit. Over 200,000 people died and over a million lost their homes.

A teenage boy from Haiti living in the US, Herold Charles, used Twitter to help reunite families and get help sent to those trapped in rubble. He was recognized for his efforts with a nomination for a TeenNick Halo Award, which recognizes teens who make a difference in their communities.

Please watch your sound for this one as it begins with a commercial.

You can make a difference and help spread the word using Twitter and other social media.
