Response Mine Interactive and BrainJocks Launch 'Tweets for a Cause' to Support Local Non-Profits

/PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to increase awareness and individual donations to local not-for-profit organizations, Response Mine Interactive and BrainJocks have joined forces to create 'Tweets for a Cause,' an avid group of social media users who believe that "friends, working in concert, can change the world."

On Tuesday, May 5th at 11 a.m., 'Tweets for a Cause' will send out its first mass 'tweet' to encourage the support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Atlanta Affiliate and to take a stand against breast cancer. Interested supporters can tweet http://twitter.com/tweetsforacause or log onto http://tweetsforacause.org/ to participate. Multiple retweets are encouraged after that hour to further generate awareness for Komen Atlanta.

"At BrainJocks, we specialize in using web technologies in new and better ways and we can't think of a better way to use an online social platform like twitter, than to promote the welfare of our own community," said Stephanie Beckham, idea strategist at BrainJocks. "We hope that our involvement can help make a real difference for the people that make this area so special."

All online traffic and proceeds of May's 'Tweets for a Cause' will benefit Komen Atlanta in honor of the May 9th Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure -- Georgia's largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer.

"We are proud to be the first philanthropy chosen by 'Tweets for a Cause,'" said Kelly Dolan, executive director of Komen Atlanta. "Individual contributions are a vital part of our ability to provide lifesaving screening, treatment and research funding and we welcome the opportunity to reach people though this innovative new resource."

Non-profit organizations interested in participating as the selected charity in the June 'Tweets for a Cause' can tweet why @tweetsforacause.
