Bidding for a Cause with TwitChange

Have you always dreamed of how exciting it would be to have your favorite celebrity following and retweeting you on Twitter? With TwitChange, you can now make it a reality, but it will cost you a pretty penny first.

TwitChange, hosted by EBay, Inc. is a global charity where Twitter users can bid on three things: to be followed by their favorite celebrity, retweeted, or mentioned by them in a special tweet. The auction started September 15 and will end September 25 and winners can enjoy their “celebrity privileges” for three months.

All proceeds raised in the auction will provide aHomeinHaiti.org the means to finish rebuilding the Miriam Center- a center that houses and educates Haitian children with cerebral palsy, severe autism and other severe life challenges. Even if you aren’t interested in bidding on a celebrity, you are still able to make a donation to help support the cause.

With Twitter reaching millions of world-wide users, charities such as this can be more successful and effective than ever before with the capability of reaching such a large and diverse audience.
