Happy TweetsGiving

Posted: 12:19 PM ET

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/11/26/c1main.tweetsgiving.jpg caption=""]
For some do-gooders, today isn’t just Thanksgiving. It’s also the second annual TweetsGiving, the culmination of a 48-hour global effort to raise money online for a school in Arusha, Tanzania.

Participants are encouraged to share what they are grateful for – and donate money, of course - through Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, and of course, 2009’s new media darling, Twitter.

The project is the brainchild of a U.S. nonprofit called Epic Change. Last November, Epic Change’s efforts raised $11,000 in 48 hours through hundreds of small donations, which the organization used to help build a classroom at the Tanzania school. Epic Change dubbed the students the “Twitter kids of Tanzania” and encouraged users to send tweets to them via their #Twitterkids blog.

This year, Epic Change had hoped to raise $100,000 by midday Thanksgiving to build the school a dormitory, library, cafeteria and more classrooms. As of Thursday at 11 a.m. ET, however, the effort had raised only about $26,000 – a possible victim of the worldwide recession.

If you still want to donate, however, it's not too late.

We Will We Will Tweet You
(to the tune of We Will Rock You)

Twitter you’re a shorthand makin our news stand
Playin in the blog gonna take away talk today
You got connected to facebook
You big interface hook
Twitpicin’ your scan all over the place

We will we will tweet you
We will we will tweet you

Twitter you’re a network ‘fail whale’ gone berserk
Inputtin slanged text gonna make me perplexed some day
You got more followers than facebook
You big interface hook
Tweetin pointless babble all over the place

We will we will tweet you
We will we will tweet you

Twitter you’re a birdie SMS absurdity
Buzzin thru the world too controversial each day
You got it over on facebook
Usin Ruby on Rails framework
Tweetin self promotion instead some grace

We will we will tweet you
We will we will tweet you

of course like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth on the other hand I¡¦ll surely come again again.
