We created tweetmyride charity campaign – which translates to 'tweet' about my ride and 'donate' towards my ride – to raise
$1 million for charity. With the help of your tweets on Twitter and the use of other social networking sites we hope to reach our goal by the end of our 4-month campaign.
Our first ever tweetmyride campaign will be an exciting international collaboration between ourselves and 10 different charities from around the world. It will run from August–November 09 and culminates just after a grueling 4-day international mountain bike race in Costa Rica from 11–14 November – La Ruta de los Conquistadores (The Route Of The Conquerers). This event is known as one of the toughest mountain bike races on the planet, so stay tuned for some fun!
We can't do this without you, so please help us spread the word as we unite for the greater good! Let's see how many people we can get on board and how far our reach will span. If you're not already on it, sign up on Twitter and have some fun with it! It's a great way to get to know other people and learn about the hard work charities are doing on a daily basis around the world. You'll learn about what they need, what their goals are for the future and where your donated money gets spent. Welcome aboard as we all journey towards one common goal.
