We had a pretty good turnout for our first #bustup in 2011 (link to short video by Visual Impact Systems) and with even more support from Channel 7 we expect this years event to have a far greater impact.
Simply defined a #bustup is a #tweetup with a definitive purpose to improve the Detroit community. This year’s #bustup will again involve many members of the #backchannel, Motor City Connect, Blightbusters and a bunch of other concerned citizens who are full of 313Dlove.
So enough about the past, what about the 2012 #bustup???
Date: August 11, 2012 (the rain date is also August 11 so we will be there rain or shine)
Time: 8:45-4:15 (come for as long as you can…there is plenty of work to do)
Where: We will meet at Motor City Java House (17336 Lahser Road, Detroit, MI 48219)
Why: Because we all need to step up and be part of the change we want to see in the D.
What can you bring? I’m so glad you asked:
Blightbusters works on improving the community 6 days a week and has been doing so for 24 years. They do it all almost exclusively through volunteers and the generous support of some stellar corporate citizens. They use some or all of the following every day:
Rakes- Axes- Shovels- Sledgehammers- Gloves- Paint- Paintbrushes- Paint Rollers- Paint trays- Plywood- Garbage cans- Garbage bags (outside)
and Dumpsters…they always need dumpsters (IF you know someone in trash removal they would be an excellent contact)
