Twestival Loves Clever Cupcakes!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Laura Carmosino of Filter Box Media to become a sponsor of Montreal Twestival Local 2009.

Twestival Local is a global event taking place in over 200 cities around the world, and Montreal is one of those cities! While Twestival Global put the spotlight around one cause, Twestival Local will support a local cause with 100% of the proceeds going directly to a local charity. Everyone involved with Twestival is a volunteer, with the majority crowdsourced using Twitter. Twestival Local is also a fantastic opportunity to connect with the great people in the Montreal community.

This time around the cause in questions was to be Head & Hands; a non-profit organization that works with youth to promote their physical and mental well-being. Being a resident of NDG I was already familiar with the great work they do and jumped at the opportunity to help raise funds by donating cupcakes to be sold at the event.

I unfortunately was unable to attend the event to sell the cupcakes personally but thanks to the great photobooth setup and photography by Eva Blue I did get to see some of the Twestival participants who purchased the cupcakes.

Your cupcakes were a huge hit! Thank you so much for helping us out with that. They were so yummy! Everyone kept talking about them, we passed out your cards. They sold out pretty quickly though, lots of people missed out since many people bought 2!
