This list of frequently asked questions will answer many of the questions you may have about hosting a TweetUp4Troops event. For any unanswered questions you may have, please call 636/449-5060 or e-mail hall@drakeco.com.

1. Why hold a TweetUp4Troops?

  • Trees for Troops is a grass roots program that shows support for U.S. troops and their families. Thousands of Christmas tree farms and individuals have donated trees for the troops. From the beginning, others have asked how they can help.
  • TweetUp4Troops was born out of the idea that it's mroe fun to have a party than to just make a donation. And if a group of people have a fun-raiser that also raises funds for the program, their efforts will have a greater impact than a donation alone.
  • 100% of the proceeds from these events will go to the Foundation and its Trees for Troops program. Everyone involved with the local TweetUp4Troops event is a volunteer.

2. Why is this event called TweetUp4Troops?

  • A TweetUp was born from the idea that Trees for Troops could use Twitter to engage volunteers from across the country to raise money for Trees for Troops and have fun while they are doing it. Make sure you are following us at www.twitter.com/TweetUp4Troops and www.twitter.com/Trees4Troops. Retweet our posts and let your follower base know about TweetUp4Troops! This is the best way to make a TweetUp successful.

3. What does a local host do?

  • As the local host, you create the event, engage other volunteers to help, serve as the event's host, collect the funds and submit them to the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation

4. Where do I hold the event?

  • Wherever is appropriate for the type of event you are having. A community center, an American Legion or VFW hall may donate space.
  • To avoid disappointment, see what's available and reserve as soon as possible!
  • If you are a business owner, it is okay to host a TweetUp4Troops event at your business. Just be very clear about what will be donated to Trees for Troops.

5. Where do I find volunteers to help?

  • Reach out and engage others to help you organize your local TweetUp4Troops. Ask your friends, co-workers, customers and employees. Talk with your local VFW or American Legion post, your church, a local civic group (Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, FFA, etc.). Put a notice in your local newspaper, radio or TV station. Post the request (and details about the event) on your Web site.
