Girlstart luvs Wolverine!

10303_large1With the recent trend of celebrities tweeting and gaining follower upon follower, Twitter has experienced a massive increase in sign ups, thus making it a house hold name. In fact, a friend of mine last week told me that her grandma’s on Twitter now-after years of shunning more traditional online communication formats such as e-mail.

Anyway, back to all this celebrities on Twitter business….What on earth could they possibly be saying? Well, if you’re Hugh Jackman, you’re saying that you’ll donate $100k to any non-profit that can convince you to donate to their mission in 140 characters (Twitter’s preset post limit). What a fun and completely generous idea! Sigh. Now I personally have always had a crush on Hugh Jackman and this just cements his status on my list. So of course I had to tweet for the prize! And because he’ll be a super hero to any organization that wins this Tweet-off, I wanted to make sure to say “Mr. Jackman, if you’re reading this, Girlstart luvs ya!” 🙂

Here’s the Tweet I posted on my Twitter:

@RealHughJackman Help girls feel like superheroes by empowering them in math, science & technology via Girlstart!

If you’re on Twitter, show your support for Girlstart by sending Mr. Jackman a tweet and urge him to support Girlstart’s mission of empowering young girls in Math, Science and Technology!
