Repost: Hugh Jackman Tweets Massive Charity Giveaway

April 15, 2009 by Regina Walton

Hugh Jackman has used Twitter to announce that he will donate $100,000 to the favorite charity of someone who can, in 140 characters or less, make the best case for their favorite cause.

“I will donate 100K to one individual’s favorite non profit organization,” he said in his Tweet. “Of course, you must convince me why by using 140 characters or less.”

He then followed his call for charity related tweets with two more – one to Ryan Seacrest asking if it would be a good idea to announce the winner on Ryan’s show: “Hey Ryan! Should we call the winning charity on your morning show on Friday, 24th?”

And, the second to encourage someone to show passion in their tweet for charity, “The more passion shown for your charity the better! Get the support of your friends and teach them the importance of giving.”

As of early Wednesday morning, Jackman had around 35,000 followers on the Twitter network. So get tweeting now!
