Twitter Blanket Drive Joburg 2016 ‪#‎TBD2016‬

The 2016 Twitter Blanket Drive has kicked off and it would be amazing if you could join the movement this year! This is a charity drive to make a difference and everyone is invited to be part of the event and fund raising, the only requirement is a desire TO WANT MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

We will be collecting blankets until Tuesday 24 May and we will drop them off at the Melrose Arch Fire and Ice Hotel.

As always there will be an event to close off this year's collection, and some great entertainment on the final which will all be announced in the next few weeks. The event is the 26 May 2016 from 6pm should you wish to attend.

For those of you who don't know what this is, read below, and for those of you who do and just want details on how to get involved, they are at the bottom.

Since 2010, the Twitter community in South Africa has been moved by compassion and has engaged the social media platform to collect blankets for some of the country’s most vulnerable people. Over the past 6 years, thousands of blankets have been collected in the weeks leading up to winter to provide some relief and, of course, warmth to those in need.

“For us as a Twitter community, social responsibility is a serious business,” says Merentia van der Vent, the national co-ordinator and Cape Town host for the Twitter Blanket Drive (TBD). “As winter’s bite fast approaches, we are aware that charities are under a huge amount of pressure to meet the demand for blankets. In today’s digital world, we have the power to make significant change, in the area of social development, harnessing the power of social media.”

The TBD started 7 years ago, in 2010, as a single tweet by Melanie Minnaar, as she contemplated the cold winter ahead and in true Twitter style, tweeted the following thought: “what if each person on Twitter donated a blanket?”

Since then, the TBD movement has exploded and now has a national footprint with campaign drives taking place in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria and the West Coast. Previous years it was also held in Bloemfontein, East London, George, Knysna and Mossel Bay and countries like Zimbabwe & Namibia. This year the official hashtag is #TBD2016.

Last year, the Instagram community in South Africa, also supported the ‪#‎TwitterBlanketDrive‬ and collected blankets on their ‪#‎Instawalks‬ across the country. South Africans are also asked via Facebook to donate blankets.

In today’s fast paced world, using social media to increase community awareness is not only smart, but essential. According to the founder of the campaign, Melanie Minnaar, the Twitter Blanket Drive has injected a true sense of community into the South African Twittersphere, as the number of Twitter users involved with the TBD has grown exponentially since 2010. Tens of thousands of blankets have over the years been donated, to those in need.

Please help us make a difference in someone’s life.
