If Twitter is the new way of sharing information, then a “Twestival” may be the new way of raising money. Started in London in 2008, this nouveau idea is now much more than a fad. With over 200 cities participating, it has become an annual social night out event that proves you really can think globally and act locally. So big congratulations go out to Vancouver’s elite tweeters who helped raise over $8,000 at last week’s YVR Twestival on behalf of local charity Beauty Night Society – an organization that helps give self-esteem to women living in poverty. And speaking of annual events, North Vancouver’s Waldorf School held their spring Festival of the Arts last week at Centennial Theatre. Showcasing students from Grades 2 – 12, it was a night of music, drama and handicrafts on display for friends and family to enjoy.
