Let the All-Day Tweeting Begin!

It’s official. We’re back again for National EB Awareness Week, on a mission to raise awareness and funds for DebRA of America and its work to support EB patients and their families. And we’re doing it in the most creative and fun fashion that we know how: via our good friends and followers – all of you! – and Twitter.

Here is how it works:
Starting Monday, October 24, at 9 a.m. EST, we will be tweeting every hour on the hour for 24 hours in a row! This year, consider us that friendly reminder, that urgent prod, that necessary poke to fire up our community with a call to action as we present 24 hours of “Take Action for EB” tweets.

But tweeting about EB is only half of the work – we need you for the other part, so here’s where you come in: from our starting hour through the final hour on Tuesday, October 25, 8 a.m. EST, we need your help! Re-tweet our updates to your followers or tweet about them using our special event hashtag #ebfund, and for every re-tweet (RT) or tweet sent out using this hashtag during that 24-hour time period, Hollister Wound Care will donate $1 each to DebRA of America … up to $2,500!

It sounds so easy, but we cannot raise these funds without your help. So bookmark our Twitter page right now – www.twitter.com/ebresource – and add an entry to your calendar or set an alarm on your cell phone for the all-important date and time: Monday, October 24, at 9 a.m. EST. Make a date to follow us all day and night, telling your friends to do the same, tweeting and re-tweeting with the designated hashtag #ebfund to ensure we reach that maximum donation with no trouble at all!

So have you set all of your necessary reminders, written or electronic, and gotten yourself prepared to help us? We can’t wait to tag-team with you for this unique online, interactive fundraiser. And thanks in advance for joining us for the exciting tweet-a-thon that lay ahead …
