Wondering what this headline is all about? Why, it’s Concern Worldwide’s very own Twitter hashtag for the Tweet ‘em home for Christmas competition.

Update: The competition is now over and we are delighted to announce that we are the proud winners of #tweetemhome. The €40,000 prize money will go to our emergency programmes in east Africa. Take a look at the highlights from the race alongside our brilliant "opponents": ISPCC Childline and Irish Cancer Society in the video below.

What is it?

Today and tomorrow, Concern will be involved in a Twitter competition. We will be one of three charities that will be collecting tweets and re-tweets; the charity with the most tweets at the end of these two days wins €30,000. It’s really important to remember that all tweets must include #esbelectricirelandteama or they won’t count.

The competition is being run by ESB Electric Ireland and involves celebrities, cars and a race across Ireland. But basically, it’s about creating as many tweets as possible for Concern.

Two-day race

The competition takes place between 8.30am and 7pm today and between 8.30am and 5pm tomorrow so all your tweets need to take place within these times. 

How can you help?

We need your help to get as many tweets as we can. All you have to do is re-tweet this to help get us started:
