Fundraising Twit

It’s amazing what you can do with a Twitter account, more than 575,000 followers, and some celebrity status. In December, Alyssa Milano asked her Twitter followers to donate to Charity: Water with a goal of raising $50,000. She reached $25,000 just five hours later, and by the end of the month, had raised $92,568 for the nonprofit. All of the funds are to go directly toward drilling wells to bring clean water to 18 communities in developing countries.
