I’m attending The Sundance Film Festival again this year and on Saturday, January 23rd, I will do so with a purpose.

During Sundance, The Parnassus Group is hosting the Tweet House to celebrate the uses and potential of Twitter in the entertainment and film industries. On Saturday from 5 to 7, the Tweet House will dedicate its efforts towards raising awareness and funds for Haiti.

It Won't Stay in Vegas CES 09 - LeVar Burton

LeVar Burton and The Parnassus Group are hosting “Tweet for Haiti,” a celebrity Tweetup that invites talent and other Sundance Festival attendees to gather and Tweet messages encouraging their followers to make donations to the organizations that are accepting funds related to the Haitian disaster. Proceeds raised from corporate sponsors of the event will be earmarked to benefit the victims. I’m supporting Unicef.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this crisis. I know from experience that members of the entertainment community can be counted on at times like this, and my partners and I are dedicated to doing what we can.” – LeVar Burton

The Tweetup will be held at The Tweet House, located at the SHOP Yoga Studio in Park City, Utah.
