Tweetsgiving Is Upon Us: What Are You Grateful For?


The folks at Epic Change are back at it again! Tweetsgiving is upon us, this year with a virtual gratitude campaign. On the Epic Change “Tweetsgving” site you can see the Epic Changemakers of the year, a place to give to the Epic Change effort. This is social media done right and with a purpose, so participate!

For my part, I gave $50. In the past two years Epic Change has built two classrooms and a library in Arusha, Tanzania, where the twitterkids, led by local changemaker Mama Lucy Kamptoni, learn and grow at one of the best primary schools in their country. Kudos to Stacey Monk and team for their continued perseverance and progress.

I would like to express my gratitude for these four things:

1) The birth of a healthy daughter: The best event of my life. I hope I can rise to the occasion and be the Dad she needs. I am so grateful for Baby Soleil.
2) Sleep: It’s so underrated until you stop getting it. I can’t wait to get more!
3) Freedom of speech: There are too many enforced truths, not enough self thinking. This is a huge issue, online and in the traditional media. Express yourself, and question everything!
4) And water. We take water for granted, and many in the world can’t enjoy it. Deep Horizon, the Danube, Chemical spills, etc. Do something about it today!

What are you grateful for?



  • I love these folks and this project!

    Not only are they doing so much at a grand scale they are also committed to supporting local efforts as well. I work with our local NetSquared/501TechClub group called PDXTech4Good and the Epic Thanks folks have offered to support the fundraising efforts for local changemakers.

    The power of gratitude can not be underestimated.

    I am grateful for the accessibility of information. Easy and equal access to the internet and all it has to offer is often taken for granted.

    • Ash: That’s a good one. Let’s hope Uncle Sam keeps Net Neutrality in place. Thanks for visiting! Spread the karma.

  • Geoff, she’s absolutely beautiful, congrats.

  • I’m grateful for people who are out there trying to make the world a better place – Epic Change, and Greenpeace, and you for all your work for Citizen Gulf, and local organizations that try to help their communities plant the seeds of small changes that blossom into a better place for all of us.

    On a personal note, I’m grateful for my marriage and my wife. A few years back she had some serious heart troubles and had to be rushed to ICU. After a long road of recovery I’m thankful for every day we have together.

    I wish you and your family the most wonderful of Thanksgivings tomorrow.
