    Only in Amsterdam can you organize a fundraising meet-up with a FHM sex-columist and playboy fantasy pin-up to raise money for water.

    That is correct; the lady on the right here is Ancilla Tilia and she will host the local Twestivals in Amsterdam. Now THAT will surely give geeks people something to Twitter about.

    Twestival is a recently launched worldwide  event which uses Twitter to raise awareness and money for a good cause. In this case all the proceeds go to charity: water, a not-for-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations
