I’m so excited to be part of an unique and excellent virtual conference – maybe the first of its kind – where fundraising colleagues will share their expertise all day December 3, 2013. Each hosted session will be one hour in a “tweet chat” format with a host and one or more experts. There will be 9 different topics covered. Knowledge at your fingertips. #micdrop

UntitledWhy are we doing this? Clare McDowall had this brilliant idea as a way of fundraisers giving back to colleagues, virtually.  She gathered some of her colleagues (I’m lucky to be included!) and we considered some of the best topics to help your fundraising all year long (and some year-end tips too).

Then we contacted giving people who are offering their expertise – for free, for fundraisers like you. You can bookmark the site (short term) so you are ready to join in on Tuesday.

Check out what we have lined up (times are EST):

I think this is a great way to share and harness the real power of #GivingTuesday – which is really about fundraisers thinking about giving (not just trying to get our donors to give to our nonprofits). In the true spirit of philanthropy, we are hoping to build capacity, share experiences and reinforce best practices of our profession. I love forums like #FundChat and others that “crowd source” best practices. But our 9 sessions via tweets will offer you a chance to chat about your own experiences before we launch into questions and expertise, with links to additional information for you to explore on your own.

With so many sessions, if you are in Halifax you can jump in from 9 am to 7 pm and in Seattle you can join from 7 am to 3 pm.

Busy on December 3 but want to help spread the word? Donate a tweet through Thunderclap.


Or contact me to learn more about our Tweet Mobs November 28 at 4:00 pm (EST) (US Thanksgiving) or Monday December 2 at 12:30 pm (EST).

I look forward to your tweets!
