The Great Exhibition 2012 is supported by a host of illustrious British celebrities including Sir Anthony Hopkins, Sir Michael Parkinson, Sir Terence Conran, Dame Ellen Macarthur and Dame Evelyn Glennie.

7 Wonders in 7 Days is Real Fresh TV’s social media powered round-the-world charity fundraising project.
Much has been written online about Facebook’s new ‘Instant Personalization’ features.
At its annual f8 developer conference, the world’s largest social network recently unveiled a raft of new features that aim to make the web inherently social.
The main headline grabber has been the ‘instant personalisation’ features enabled by the Facebook Open Graph API which allows any website to present information about a user’s friends actions on the site. (more…)
Despite the rather grandiose title, this blog post is a rather short review of last night’s scintillating Manchester Twestival event.
I’d been really looking forward to it as last year I wasn’t able to make the very first MancTwester, despite helping out behind the scenes in the run up to it and providing items for the charity auction because I had to fly out to Nigeria for my gran’s funeral.
Manchester Twestival 2009 raised £3500 on the night, part of the £174,899 ($250,000) raised for charity:water through the 200+ simultaneous fundraising events that took place around the world on February 12, 2009.
Twestival has inspired a number of social media powered fund-raising ideas not least 7 Wonders in 7 Days, the epic round-the-world charity fundraising project I’m involved in that aims to raise £777,000 for 7 charities through a transatlantic dash to see the new 7 wonders of the world in 7 days, with 7 strangers in tow!
All funds raised go to Concern Worldwide, an international humanitarian organisation dedicated to reducing suffering and ending extreme poverty
It was a top night. The MancTwester charity auction, presented by Byron Evans of the sadly missed ‘TV channel for Manchester’ Channel M and featuring an incredible list of items donated by the Manchester community made for much conviviality.
Amongst a raft of new project developments for Real Fresh TV (more on this on the soon-to-be unveiled new website!), a number of significant developments have taken place in the burgeoning social media industry relating to charity fundraising I feel I most post about.
I’m finally blogging my notes from a couple of key industry events I attended in the last month. This post is about the launch of Skillset North. I will blog about developments at MediaCity:UK in a follow up post.
Hot on the heels of my announcement of Real Fresh TV’s social media charity engagement of the year: 7 Wonders in 7 Days, comes the first live music event in aid of the charity fundraising trip planned for September 2009.
For those of you who are unaware, 7 Wonders in 7 Days is an epic adventure trip I’m embarking on jointly inspired by my grandmonther’s funeral in February and Channel 4’s brilliant Secret Millionaire programme.
