You know how you know I’m a social media enthusiast? I know that my Twitter Birthday is March 20th.
@yeahman was first created on March 20, 2008.
That’s right, I keep a reminder in my calendar of the day I joined Twitter. #ILoveSocialMedia. And like most people, my first Tweet wasn’t all that profound, interesting or even worth remembering.

To celebrate this year I’m giving back. Twitter has helped me meet, reach and experience so many great people, places and of course lots of great Food. Twitter allows me to tweet all day about tasty Food and all the fun I’m having sharing it with others. Some people aren’t as fortunate. Some families out there don’t even know where their next meal is coming from. I can only imagine how hard that must be. So lets do something about it. For my Twitter Birthday I’m going to make a donation to a charity that helps the less fortunate eat. I’m going to let you pick which one, The Food Bank For NYC or City Harvest.
On March 20, 2013, I’ll be counting the number of votes you post on Twitter and whichever charity has the most votes by 11:59 pm EST, will get the donation.

About the Food Bank for NYC
Food Bank For New York City recognizes 29 years as the city’s major hunger-relief organization working to end food poverty throughout the five boroughs. As one of the country’s largest food banks, our mission is to end hunger in New York City by organizing food, information and support for community survival and dignity. As the city’s hub for integrated food poverty assistance, the Food Bank tackles the hunger issue on three fronts — food distribution, income support and nutrition education — all strategically guided by its research.
About City Harvest
This year, City Harvest will collect more than 42 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to nearly 600 community food programs throughout New York City using a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest helps feed the more than one million New Yorkers that face hunger each year.
