Colombia: Twitterathon for School Children

February is back-to-school season in most of Colombia, and some Twitter users (who helped organize a “Twitterathon” last December to help the victims of the rainy season) joined to gather school supplies for 730 children [es] who study at Fundación Hogar San Mauricio [es] in Bogotá and Institución Educativa Luis Carlos Galán, sede Altos del Pino [es] in neighbouring city Soacha. As of Saturday 5 February, 4,064 items were donated. Pictures of the event are available at their Facebook page.
