During the event, there was live music by Amy Regan and a display of tweets hashtagged "#tweetsgiving" from attendees at each of these events.

The New York City edition was joined by one of these entrepreneurs, Mama Lucy Kampton.  Proceeds from the event will be used to benefit the primary school she founded, Shepherds Junior, in Arusha, Tanzania, and will help pay for the construction of a dormitory, orphanage, library, school cafeteria, and additional classrooms.
