Kids Need to Read Tweetathon

Greetings and Salutations Dear Constant Reader, Can I call you CR for short? Why? Oh its because I am lazy that’s why. In university they group I hung out with would shorten everyone’s name to just three letters out of laziness (e.g.. mig,sal,pen,col,mem,ben,bob,etc..) As a more experienced Adult I have improved on this system and reduced everyone to just two letters.

But to more serious matters. KIDS NEED TO READ!. Reading is an amazing experience, it opens up new ideas, lets your mind travel to distant lands, or times, it allows you to experience all kinds of adventures in that most powerful of virtual realities “The Human Imagination“. Therefore it is the utmost importance that we all do whatever we can to help encourage and enable the newer generations to discover the wonders of a good book. And as part of doing our bit, we here at the Ninja Temple would like to bring your attention to the efforts of “Hyde and Geek” @hydeandgeek and his 36 Hour Tweetathon in aid of “Kids Need To Read” Which you have to admit is a very noble and worthy cause. He raised $2000 for them during the 2010 Tweetathon, so lets see if he can do better this year.

Now, I shall hand you over to Scott courtesy of his Blog over at Or you could just jump to the link giving this years details HERE. The text below is taken directly off Scott’s site.

The 2011 Kids Need to Read 36-Hour Tweetathon is officially going to take place from Thursday, May 19th at noon through Friday, May 20th at midnight.

For those who missed out on the fun in 2010, I’ll recap the basic idea. (More details can be found in the FAQ.) I will be sitting in front of my computer for 36 hours straight and tweeting at least once every 10 minutes for the duration of that time to encourage people to donate money to Kids Need to Read through a charity page that will be set up specifically for the Tweetathon. What will I do for 36 hours? That’s sort of random. Last year, I asked geek trivia questions, posted photos (some of them embarrassing) and made a general fool of myself. This year, well… we’ll just see how it goes, shall we?

Just be sure to follow me on Twitter so you don’t miss out on all the geeky fun!
