It's that time of year again: another TwitChange Auction for Charity! This time all of the money raised from celebrities offering follows and retweets will go to help the troops, and everyone from actors Zachary Levi and Alyssa Milano to athletes Troy Palamalu and Shawn Marion are taking part. Even though I am an author twice over, and I have produced quite a few independent projects and web series, I was not asked to participate. I know: shocker, right? Ha! Well, I still do what I can for charity, so I'm offering a similar version of TwitChange in order to do a lot of good for a number of causes.
As you know, I am one of the founders of IBG Inc, a local Los Angeles 501(c)(3) charity that acts as a fundraising facilitator, throwing celebrity based events and auctions to raise money and awareness for various micro-charities. To date we have raised thousands of dollars for little known charities such as Kids Defense Team, Boys and Girls Aid, The Santa Monica-UCLA Rape Treatment Center, The Relational Center, and Off The Street Kids. And of course we don't plan to stop there!
But we can't do it alone. Right now, IBG Inc relies on donations to stay afloat. So keeping that in mind, I am offering myself up (within reason and only via Twitter) over the next few weeks.
- For every $5 donation made to IBG Inc between February 1st and February 20th 2011, I will ReTweet one of your Tweets.
- For every $10 donation made to IBG Inc between February 1st and February 20th 2011, I will ReTweet one of your Tweets at YOUR choosing*.
- For every $15 donation made to IBG Inc between February 1st and February 20th 2011, I will craft my own special shout-out Tweet to you, telling people why they should follow you.
- For every $20 donation made to IBG Inc between February 1st and February 20th 2011, I will follow you on Twitter for 30 days and ReTweet one of your Tweets at your choosing*.
- For every $50 donation made to IBG Inc between February 1st and February 20th 2011, I will do your choice of two of the above PLUS send you a signed copy of my pop culture memoir.
All donations must be made via the Paypal "donate" button on IBG's home page. Be sure to include "DanielleTBD's TwitChange Offer" along with your Twitter handle in the notes or comments section when making your donation.
*Any and all ReTweets are subject to my own personal approval. I will not ReTweet anything with slanderous or otherwise profane language, nor will I ReTweet inappropriate photos. However, Tweets advertising your business are more than fine, as are any Tweets trying to get an actual celebrity's attention!
