Tweeting For Charity

TwitChange celebrity auction will raise money for Haiti children’s center.

TwitChange, a new initiative on Twitter, is a celebrity auction aiming to raise money for the rebuilding of the Miriam Center in Haiti. Tweeters can bid on celebrities to have them as followers, businesses can donate in return for the widespread mention of their names, and charitable people can donate in order to raise money for the rebuilding of the center which houses, educates, and helps Haitian children with cerebral palsy, severe autism, and other challenges. Veg celebrities Olivia Wilde, Tony Robbins, and Alyssa Milano are some of the participating stars. The organization funding the reconstruction of the Miriam Center, aHomeinHaiti.org, have already provided over $1.5 million in tents to homeless Haitians since the earthquake.
