Tweet at a turkey to help Good Shepherd feed the homeless this Thanksgiving

For every 1000 tweets that includes the hashtag #HomelessTurkey, 10 turkeys will be donated to Good Shepherd.

TORONTO, Oct. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Turkeys can't tweet, but they can eat. This Thanksgiving, Good Shepherd is using the power of Twitter to help feed Toronto's homeless. From October 9 to 11, for every 1000 tweets that include the hashtag #HomelessTurkey, 10 turkeys will be donated to Good Shepherd's annual Thanksgiving meal. In addition, every time someone includes #HomelessTurkey in a tweet, a small portion of feed will be dispensed from Good Shepherd's innovative hashtag-powered feeder to three lucky turkeys that have been spared from their Thanksgiving fate.

"It's hard to give money or food to every homeless person you pass on the street, but it's very easy to tweet," said Brother David Lynch, Executive Director of Good Shepherd. "Not only can Toronto help us feed as many people as possible this holiday season, but by spreading the word socially, they are also helping us raise awareness for the food and shelter Good Shepherd provides year-round for our city's less fortunate."

Good Shepherd serves more than 1200 meals to the homeless everyday, more than any other organization in Toronto. Well known on the streets of Toronto as a place to get a hot meal, clean clothes and a safe, clean bed for the night, Good Shepherd is a leading provider of comprehensive services to homeless, disadvantaged and marginalized people in the city.
