#tweetathon 2009

So I mentioned this earlier in the week but I thought I better do a decent post on the subject for you lot seeing as how Diary of a Ledger has become so much a apart of the twitterverse for me. And this is about twitter helping me to help a worthy cause.

The tweetathon is going to take place on the 12th and 13th of October. I plan to start as midnight ticks over on the 11th and finish hopefully on the 13th at midnight. 48 hours of tweeting at least once every ten minutes.

Why? Well for charidee of course.

I'm raising money for BASICS, go have a look at their website for more details about who they are and what they do. They saved a colleagues life after an accident last summer and work have been doing their best to support them over the last year.

I only launched my Just Giving site yesterday but have already broken through my first target of £50, which means I will definitely stay up for 24 hours. £150 will get me to stay up for the full 48 hours and if I raise a grand... well that's yet to be decided. No AT, not naked paint ball.

I am gonna need your support. Not the cash thing, although obviously that will help, but just simple stuff. Tweeters tweet this blog post. If you use Digg, dig it. If you're a stumbler stumble it. If you're just a humble user of facebook, share it on facebook. Let people know what I'm up to. My tweets will be unprotected for that 48 hour period so anyone will be able to watch. I'll post more details of what happens if twitter dies during the period but I do have a contingency plan, just in case.

Go on friends, make me stay up for 48 hours and tweet my nuts off.
