140 Characters to help Kentucky Opera



Now this is an interesting fundraising strategy.
Hugh Jackman has offered to donate $100,000 to one person's favorite charity if they are able to convince him he should do so in 140 characters (spaces and punctuation included) on the social media site, Twitter. The online news source, The Australian quotes Jakman as twittering:
"The more passion shown for your charity the better! Get the support of your friends and teach them the importance of giving."

So all you opera fans, sign up for twitter, follow Hugh Jackman, and tell him why he should give Kentucky Opera 100K in 140 characters or less!
