It’s that time of year again when the social media community gathers together and helps support those that are not as fortunate as others.

It all started with a Tweet.   In 2010 Melanie Minnaar Tweeted, ‘What if each person on Twitter donated a blanket for the poor.’   The rest as they say is history.  Now in 2013 there are events all over South Africa and even in Africa.

All charities that we donate to are N.P.O’s (Non-Profit Organisations) so you can be sure each blanket goes to the people who really need it this winter.

The official hashtag for the event is #TBD2013 please share this with each tweet as you add your support for this event.

Share this cause with your friends, family and your community.

Our target this year is 30 000 Blankets.

There will be venues around the country where you can drop off your blankets.

Come to the main event on 25 May at various locations countrywide.

When you drop off your blankets take a picture and upload it to Twitter or Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtag #TBD2013 and tweet us @TBDAfrica so we can see it.

Corporate donations are also most welcome.
