Join the global pawPawty this Saturday!

In Animal News, Help the Animals on June 11, 2009 at 5:10 pm

The latest phenomenon in the ever-evolving Twitter universe has arrived—the global pawPawty! Once a month, animal lovers around the world Tweet in the voice of their pets to raise money for a variety of animal causes.

This month’s pawPawty kicks off at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday, June 13, and continues for a full 24 hours. The “anipals” have chosen a 1980s theme—from hair bands to headbands, there will be something for everyone! The pawPawty features interactive games, quizzes and DJs playing your favorite ’80s tunes.

Participants are encouraged to outfit their avatars according to the theme, and @emmythecat will be creating a Paws Wall to display all the styles. The charity of choice this month is @Romeothecat’s Monthly Furpower Challenge, Angels for Animals.

The most important part of the pawPawty is getting in on the conversation. To do this, be sure to add the hash tag “#pawpawty” to each Tweet so all the anipals at the pawPawty can see it and have a chance to respond.

The main organizer of the event, @FrugalDougal, provides additional tips and tricks about how to navigate the pawPawty at FrugalDougal.co.uk. —Christina Cottini
