Are You @Tweepared?

Loyal blog readers know that I’m into design and Twitter. So you can only imagine my enthusiasm about a new campaign that combines those two things with the real love of my life…preparedness.

@Tweepared is a “human billboard installation”/fundraising event for the Greater Ozarks Chapter of the American Red Cross (who are awesome Twitterers, BTW). They’ll be creating “Real Time Tweet Shirts” and educating people on how to use the social media outlet for emergency preparedness.

Said @Tweepared mastermind Shawn Matthews of Swagbot, “We want to help people realize the need to plan for emergencies in a fun and creative way, while at the same time harnessing the power of social media to raise money for an important local cause.”

If you can’t attend this Friday’s event out in Springfield (that’s Missouri, not Oregon), you can still get @Tweepared:

1. Sign up for a Twitter account
2. Follow @Tweepared
3. Create an emergency plan for your family, church or business.
4. Make an emergency kit.
5. Send a message (Tweet) to 3 of your friends and tell them to get @tweepared.

You can also buy an awesome t-shirt right here!
