Continuing their successful campaign from last year, Telenor Pakistan has restarted their campaign #TweetAMeal this Ramadan too, that aims to eradicate hunger as much as possible via digital help and word of mouth. This activity is about sharing photos of your meals for Sehr & Iftar and engage as many users as possible in tweeting pictures of their meals at these times; each tweet made will be equal to a meal donated to under privileged hungry kids. Hence, number of meal distributions depends highly on the tweets shared under the hashtag. They are planning to make the food distribution in Thar or related areas after Eid.
Some of us might think, ‘Oh what a waste of an effort’ or ‘Oh another way to keep a hashtag trending’ but hey! think about the outcome… a poor child can be fed just by you tweeting your meal with the hashtag and telling others around you to do the same.
After all, don’t we all make our meals wait for instagram or snapchat? Why not do it for a cause this time, yeah?
I’m already a part of this activity and hope to be a part of the distribution round too if they take volunteers along for this generous piece of work.
Look at how some awesome twitter ati share playing their part in this
Spread the Word. Tweet Your Meals. Feed the Hungry
Karachi Eat Festival, which commences today at Frere Hall and will go on for three days till Sunday has a lot to offer in terms of food. Like other eateries, this small burger joint, Big Thick Burgers (BTB) known for its charcoal grilled to perfection burgers, started with passion by two brothers, have also setup their kiosk at the festival. BTB is introducing a campaign to help spread smiles to the entire city. They claim that for every 10 burgers sold at the festival, 1 will be served to a hungry street child.
Building on the concept of ‘since it’s ‘Karachi Eat’, no one should sleep hungry’, the brand representative Adil Awan stated, “You see a lot of people from the upper and middle class enjoying the best of Karachi food at this festival. Brands make money, people get entertainment and somehow in our frivolities we tend to forget about the underprivileged.” According to Adil, #BigThickSmiles is about one brand trying to give back to the community in a small way.
“We pride ourselves on the constant love and support of our patrons. Even in this saturated market, our clientele trusts us because they know we serve the best quality meat from MeatOne, chicken from K&Ns and provide a 100% authentic charcoal grilled experience that no one else can”, said Mr. Ali Amanullah, co-founder and director of Big Thick Burgerz. “Exactly like our day to day business operations, we are banking on the success of this campaign only with the help of our customers who visit us at Karachi Eat Festival.”
Although this campaign is supposed to last for the duration of Karachi Eat, Mr. Amanullah is hoping the public’s response is overwhelming enough to make sure this can turn into a regular endeavor for BTB. People can help the campaign by either purchasing a burger or by spreading the word on social media by using the #BigThickSmiles hashtag. Everyone who talks about the campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag will be rewarded with a 15% discount on their next order from BTB either at dine-in or through delivery.
Besides the #BigThickSmiles campaign, customers will be able to avail upto 40% discount on menu items all throughout the Karachi Eat Festival
So hurry, make your entry and head onto stall 63 for some discount, food munching and philanthropy altogether! 🙂
