Twihards4Charity (sponsored by 211me) to unite and encourage fans to give back to Haiti. "If 'Twilight' fans ban together, we can make a big difference. This is about getting the fans motivated and really channel their camaraderie to help a country in need," Facinelli tells PopEater. Find out how you can get involved and more. >>
Facinelli knows first hand how influential groups of Twihards can be when they get together, adding his firm belief that this project will prove the movie fans' power. "I've seen it while filming the 'Twilight' movies. They're like a family... When you ban a group of people together, great things can happen and be really powerful."
Rob DeFranco, CEO of 211me, started the social campaign after noticing that 'Twilight' fans were chatting on Twitter and message boards, asking what they could do to get involved. "This online experience is an all-in-one social network. They can donate, chat on message boards, download photos and videos. Fans can rally to give what they can to help," DeFranco adds.
In the coming months, other 'Twilight' stars like Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are set to help with the cause. Everything from exclusive merchandise to phone calls may be auctioned off -- with all proceeds going to support those in need. Check out Twihards4Charity for more information and see how you can give back.
