Charitweet has chosen Codestarter as the featured charity for this year’s #GivingTuesday, a first-of-its-kind effort that aims to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season through the use of social media. This is a huge partnership that highlights the importance of getting technology in the hands of underserved kids, so that even more kids can learn to code and shape the future of tech.
#GivingTuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday because it reminds us that the spirit of the holiday giving season should be about community and not just consumerism,” said Kathy Calvin, CEO of the UN Foundation. “The most meaningful gift we can give our children, loved ones, friends and neighbors is the commitment to work together to help build a better world.
In the next 7 days leading up to #GivingTuesday (Tuesday, December 2) - Charitweet will feature Codestarter, harnessing the power of twitter to spread the word about our mission and encourage giving back. It’s a simple, and powerful, way for us to get more laptops in the hands of kids waiting to learn to code.
Join me @chrtwt and @codestarterorg to give $10 towards a laptop for a kid who wants to learn to code. Pls RT #futureoftech #GivingTuesday
The magic is in the RT. The more support people show on Twitter through RTs, the more donations that come in.
